    Question SM Sticky Featured Widget ?


    Do you know the WordPress plugin named "SM Sticky Featured Widget" for ClassiPress ? Well here the link below :

    I would like to know if someone know how to modify that plugin for "Showing only the specific category" ?

    I found this code below, line 34 :
    PHP Code:
            elseif(is_category()) {
    $term get_term_by('id'get_cat_ID(single_cat_title(""false)), 'category');
    Here is the full code below :
    PHP Code:
