I want to show the recent posts from the portfolio. I tried display-posts plugin, I also tried catposts plugin, but all they do is they show the recent posts just from the blog and ignore the portfolio posts. As far as I understand, the portfolio is an extension to blog but for some reason, it doesn't work...

  • Please post some of the code that you have tried.

You can get latest post from any post type with the simple query

// Arguments
$args = array(
    'post_type' => 'portfolio',

// The Query
$the_query = new WP_Query( $args );

// The Loop
if ( $the_query->have_posts() ) {
    echo '<ul>';
    while ( $the_query->have_posts() ) {
        echo '<li>' . get_the_title() . '</li>';
    echo '</ul>';
    /* Restore original Post Data */
