    hey there,

    one question: how can I create an element in Visual Composer that displays the categories of a given post?
    – would that work via a html- or a javascript-element? and if so how?

    thx for any help!

    Hi Oliver,

    You can use the Recent Posts element and select the category you want to display.

    Hope this helps.

    Kind regards,
    Tom

    hey Tom,

    thanks for geting back.
    – I have to clarify: I want a list of metadata (here category) to display anywhere on a built page (in my case it uses categories, tags etc.). I don´t want to display the actual posts/pages belonging to those categories/tags – just a list with links to the tag-/category-archives themselves :-). so something like: ‘category: general, holidays, video’ to be placed via visual composer

    … guess it is mainly about how to use WP-functions in the visual composer, i.e. what exact syntax to use…
    I wonder wheteher/how this can be achieved with either html-element or javascript-element

    thx again!

    Hi Oliver,

    You could add a widgetized sidebar then add a category + tag cloud widget into it. Or you could add the widget to a sidebar and have a sidebar on your page. If that is what you are trying to achieve?

    Kind regards,
    Tom
