    On my home page, I have a Block 3 News widget which I have set to “latest News”. I need to customize the WP_query for it, but I can’t seem to find which code is feeding the posts into this widget. I have many custom post types that I need to add to the “latest news” so that it reflects all of my newest content.

    Thank you!

    hi richardmathis, if you need to change query for your view, please go to jmagz-plugin > lib > vc > view.php

    you can find right there this function : jeg_build_post_statement (this is the function that control query). and you can find it at jmagz-plugin > lib > plugi-helper.

    Thank you

    ok, found it and was able to modify it to support custom post types how I wanted.

    One issue I’m having now, is that the get_the_category() function isn’t working properly for anything except posts. Where is that function so I can modify it?
