A few weeks ago, I shared a story about a friend launching a new website and desiring a way to share a list of his WordPress posts on specific pages throughout his website.
I shared two methods to accomplish this feat using WordPress’ Display Posts Shortcode plugin.
Although a good plugin to use for displaying the latest WordPress posts on a given WordPress page, a few of you contacted me about displaying the WordPress posts by a given category.
Of course, displaying the WordPress posts by a given category using WordPress’ Display Posts Shortcode plugin is not a problem at all.
In fact, simply set category or category_id parameters within the display posts shortcode, and you’re all set.

However, it is a problem when using WordPress’ Display Posts Shortcode plugin causes a conflict with other plugins on your website.
So, what do you do when encountering a Plugin conflict attempting to list posts by a given category?
