Using the Post widget in a new directory (Academic Theme)

Hi.

I’m currently trying to use the post widget for a different menu directory. I currently have the content/home/post.md file, which looks at recent I’ve created. Now I’ve created a menu with the following dropdown selection.

[[main]]
  name = "Home"
  url = "#about"
  weight = 10

[[main]]
  name = "Posts"
  url = "#posts"
  identifier = "dropdown"
  weight = 20
  hasChildren = true

  [[main]]
  name = "Finance"
  url = "/Finance"
  weight = 20
  parent = "dropdown"

  [[main]]
  name = "Economics"
  url = "/Economics/"
  weight = 20
  parent = "dropdown"

  [[main]]
  name = "Data Science"
  url = "/Data Science/"
  weight = 20
  parent = "dropdown"

  [[main]]
  name = "Machine Learning"
  url = "/Machine Learning"
  weight = 20
  parent = "dropdown"

  [[main]]
  name = "Programming"
  url = "/Programming/"
  weight = 20
  parent = "dropdown"

I’ve created a new post widget called finance.md, which my dropdown menu links to. I was hoping to have the finance.md show only posts in the finance category by changing the filter option in the widget, but that was unsuccessful. I was wondering what I was missing, what I’m doing wrong, or if I’m on the right track. I’ve looked at the documentation, but I couldn’t really find anything related to what I’m trying to do.

Thanks in advance.
