Hi All,

I'm taking my first steps into php though WordPress, and although i seem to be about 90% of the way there in terms of where i would like the site to be, i just have a couple of final issues that i just can't work out. To help me along the way i have used a few templates, which I've been able to customize to suit my needs.

I'm not sure how much detail i need to provided, but below is the php from the relevant widget page. What I'm after is to only show certain listings so for example i have it set up so you can specify if the car is sold or not. For this widget i only want to show the available cars. As i understand i need to include a statement within the '$args' which specifies to only include listings with the status of available - but i have no idea as to how this would be done.

Hopefully this has made some sense and it's possible to either point me in the right direction or show how the code would look. Also if i have missed any aspect this would need to be provided please let me know and i will upload.

Many thanks,

Keith
