list-posts WordPress Plugin

This is a a plugin that lists the latest posts on any page (or post). It does not use an iframe. It is extremely simple, and honors permissions and pa

  1. Upload the list-posts directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. Place <!--LIST_POSTS--> or [[LIST_POSTS]] in the HTML view of a page. It will be replaced by the plugin.
  4. As of version 1.0, you can specify two items of metadata (Custom Fields) for a given page. This will control what is displayed in the plugin.
  5. As of version 1.1, more metadata has been added (Item >= C). You can now specify how many posts are shown (-1 is all of them), and you can now filter for series (from the excellent organize-series plugin).

A. list_posts_include This is a comma-separated list of integers (category IDs), category slugs, or tags; each of which is a tag, category ID or slug. Any posts that claim this category in their taxonomy will be included, unless their category is in list_posts_exclude. If this custom field is defined, then ONLY those categories will be displayed. If it is not specified, then all categories will be displayed.

B. list_posts_exclude This is a comma-separated list of integers (category IDs), category slugs, or tags; each of which is a tag, category ID or slug. Any posts that claim this category/tag in their taxonomy will be excluded. Exclude always overrides include. If you exclude a parent category, you cannot include children categories.

C. list_posts_count A simple integer. If set to 0, then all posts in the filter specified will be displayed (watch out -this could be a lot). If not specified, then the default ('num_posts' option, set to 5 for now).

D. list_posts_series This is a comma-separated list of integers or series slugs, each of which is an organize-series plugin series ID or slug. Any posts that are in this series will be included, unless their category is in list_posts_exclude. If this custom field is defined, then ONLY those series will be displayed. If this field is specified, then list_posts_include is ignored. If the organize-series plugin is not installed and activated, then this will be ignored.
