    First of all: great app! The more I use the more I appreciate it.

    There's only one thing; is there a way to display one of the custom fields I've added to my posts? With or without field name (key).

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi Irma,
    yes, it's possible. It will be added in the next release, which should come in the next few days.

    The user will be able to choose if display the value or also the key. The output form will be:

    key: value

    The semicolon can be changed with a filter.

    Thanks for your kind words.

    Bye.

    Just checked it out and it's fantastic.
    I use for an events calendar for an impressario so it needs to show a venue which I have as a custom fiels and it also needs to show posts with a future date. And it does!
    Thank you very much.

    Great! ;)

    If you will publish only future posts (posts that will be published in the future) in that widget, it would be better to remove the link from the title, just for not getting a 404 page. You can remove the link from the title in the widget options.

    I feel like such an idiot because I tested while I was logged in.
    However, I do like the link to the post in your plugin, so I will try to figure a way around this problem. Maybe another plugin that publishes future posts and at the same time leaves the status as 'future' so your plugin will still work.
    Any thoughts? :-)

    I don't think that it's possible to maintain the status of a published post as "future post".

    Maybe an event plugin or calendar plugin could be more useful?

    Got it!
    I installed a plugin called 'Future' and that did the trick.
    No more 404's but a title-link to a future post. Have a look at the site.
    So this plugin, together with yours, is exactly what I was looking for.
    Me very happy. :-)
