Currently Reading/Listening List (6 posts)

    I searched, and it seems the only plugin available to do a reading / listening list (a'la Typepad) is to either hard code it or use Chait's Amazon plugin.

    Isn't there anyone out there who has developed a plugin to display a list of books you are reading or albums you're listening to?

    I don't think you understand what I'm describing.

    Not the "Currently listening to ..." at the end of a post. I'm talking about a list on the sidebar that displays a group of books or albums that are currenty being read/listened to by the user.

    Typepad calls these Typelists...

    It's true that custom fields only work within the Loop, but if you have some PHP skills, you may be able to understand the query instructions at the bottom of the article I listed above on how to call this information from the post meta table into your sidebar or wherever you want it.

    There is also a plugin at http://www.coffee2code.com/archives/2004/06/30/plugin-get-custom/ that might be able to help you do this, too. There may be others.

    Alright, I'll see what I can find -- though I have near to nothing when it comes to PHP skills...

    Can't get to the Codex site right now for some reason. Figures...
