SOUP - Show off Upcoming Posts

Displays your upcoming posts in a sidebar widget to tease your readers

SOUP creates a widget in your sidebar which allows you to display your upcoming posts (scheduled, drafts, or both) to your readers. The idea is to entice your readers to come back and read the article once it gets published, or better yet, subscribe to your RSS feed and/or newsletter.

Here are the configurable options for the widget:

  • Title of sidebar widget
  • Number of upcoming posts to display (always in ascending order - newest first)
  • Which categories to display posts from
  • Choose whether to show scheduled posts, drafts, or both.
  • Display order of the posts (next post first or random order)
  • Message to display for when there are no scheduled posts or drafts
  • Show/hide newsletter link
  • Include link to sign up to newsletter

I've got plans to continue developing and updating this plugin. If you have any suggestions on revisions that you'd like to see made, please get in touch or find me on Twitter.

I also run Do It With WordPress, which has an array of tutorials for managing, modifying and maintaining your WordPress sites, as well as The WP Butler, a service for keeping your site maintained, backup up, updated and secure.
