    It works for me and I'm using WP-2.5.1, the only thing I can see is that you may be using "fancy" permalinks and if you want to use this plugin, you have to stick to default permalinks.

    Maybe the author will fix this...

    Cheers,
    Gene

    @Gene: Thank you for the heads up!

    Unfortunately I haven't tested the plugin myself, but my reference is from this forum thread.

    By default permalinks, do you mean pageid?= something other?

    Thanks!

    Hi Mosey,

    By default permalinks, do you mean pageid?= something other?

    Yup, you got it... Hopefully, that'll be fixed somewhere down the road.

    Cheers,
    Gene

    @Gene: Thanks for the prompt reply! Yes, I hope it does get fixed soon too! Most of my sites don't use the default permalink structure, so hopefully there will be a workaround soon.

    Hi Mosey,

    I contacted the plugin author and according to him, it does work with "pretty" permalinks (his blog is setup that way), it looks like a theme problem in my case. I switched themes, set my permalinks to /archives/numerical and it worked quite well.

    I switched back to my old theme, set my permalinks to default and will take a closer look at my theme and try to fix it (I like the theme I'm using for that particular blog, LOL!).

    If you really want to give it a try, I would suggest playing around with it and if you encounter any problem, visit the author's site and leave him a message.

    Cheers,
    Gene

    @Gene: Thank you very much! It's very reassuring to know that the plugin author is still supporting the plugin in some way. I will definitely test out the plugin for one of my sites at the end of the month when I'm more free and let everyone know how it goes for me as well.

    Hope it all gets resolved for your site too!
