Allows creation of "virtual pages" that query posts and display results using regular page templates.
Please note: This is an experimental plugin at the moment and should not be used on live sites. Testing and feedback are welcome, and will help me get to a stable 1.0 release quicker. Thanks!
Virtual Pages is my first stab at a WordPress equivalent to Drupal's powerful Views module. It lets site creators choose from query_posts parameters (category, tag, author, etc.) as well as a date range to display posts on a "virtual page" at a given permalink.
These pages exist outside the page table, so nobody has to learn any shortcodes or do any PHP coding.
Results output to the standard page templates included in themes, so developers no longer need to write a custom template with a call to query_posts() in order to do more than a simple list of posts.
Looking for this same functionality, but in a widget? Check out the Query Posts Widget plugin.
NOTE: Virtual Pages requires PHP 5.0 or higher and permalinks enabled.
