Bug in list category posts plugin
The list category posts plugin should (or once did) support custom taxonomies: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/syntax-for-custom-taxonomies. Unfortunately, I cannot get this to work and I saw several more recent posts indicating that others have had the same experience. Could we get this functionality working again on our end?

Thanks, Gina. It looks like the plugin inadvertently dropped support for custom taxonomies in version 0.54. Let me see how hard it is to fix it. I do not want us to run our own fork of the plugin, but it looks like the author is willing to accept improvements.

Thanks! In case you didn't see it, the original code is here: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-list-category-posts-custom-taxonomy-support-and-array-get_posts-call

Looking at this a bit more closely, it appears that you can query custom taxonomies using this plugin, but it's not very clear how to do it. You have to couple the 'taxonomy' attribute with the 'tags' attribute, and the value of 'tags' must be the slug of your term. So if you have a taxonomy 'project-category' and a term 'Cool Projects' and the slug 'cool-projects', the following should work:
[catlist taxonomy='project-category' tags='cool-projects']
Let me know if this works for you.
