    Hi!

    I've got Fuzzy recent posts up and running. Can you tell me how I can make the list look like the sidebar display of recent posts on Blogger? Right now the date is diplayed above the post and this kind of stretches the length of the list. How can I modify what is echoed?

    Thanks in advance.

    Cheers,
    Navin

    well, you can do so in two ways:

    either you find and replace the line:

    $output .= "<h3>$post_date:</h3>n<ul>n";

    with:

    $output .= "<ul>n";

    Alternatively, call:

    $recent_posts = $sem_recent_posts('display=xml');

    $recent_posts will then contain raw xml data, as documented. from there, you can format it any way you like with xslt.

    Cool! The first method worked very well for me!

    Dude, how to take the RSS feed thing off the output? I tried taking out the inside parts of ('RSS Feed') but got an error.

    @Paula remove lines 205-210, immediately before echo $output;

    That's what I thought. But was afraid to because of references earlier up the code. I have seen far too many parse errors and other oopsy lines lately after mucking with plugins that my eyes were beginning to hurt.

    Anyway, it worked. Thanks!

    Stay tuned, too, as v3 is coming very soon. it features an xslt argument, that will let you use any custom template that you want.

    I've released version 3.0 beta of the plugin. Testers are welcome.

    The two new key features are:

    - XSLT argument: customize the tile any way you want
    - Built-in caching

    i'd be curious to know the proportion of folks who cannot use xslt...

    I've upgraded to the latest version and the fuzzy plugins do not render properly. I get the message about contacting my host about the problem. I emailed support and got the following reply ...
    "Dom XSLT" php module is already pre-compiled with our apache server. What do I do now?

  14. Denis de Bernardy

    not properly then, since the plugin checks for the xslt functions' existence. i suggest you direct them to the xslt page i point to from the plugin's error message. likely is that sablotron is missing or something -- the page contains install and config information.

    re removing RSS feed in version 3? What lines to remove please?

  16. Denis de Bernardy

    just set the field name to nothing, e.g.

    sem_recent_posts('feed_name=');

    v.3.2 is out and adds wrappers for php5 platforms with xslt functions disabled.

    v.3.3 silently discards parse errors

    any way to modify so I can show more recent posts? Seems it only shows 3 recent posts now. I suspected it's the max_per_day varaible, but it didn't work..

    min_num and max_num
    min_num and max_num let you define a minimum and a maximum number of posts to display. They default to 3 and no maximum respectively.

    Cool! I now change it to:
    sem_recent_posts('min_num=30&max_num=30&feed_name=');

    It works! Thanks!

    How do you get it to show only the recent posts within the current category when the page shown is a single.php page (single post page)?

    Basically, how do you dynamically insert the category value or else should this be done by modifying the plugin, implementing this kind of function:

    <?php foreach((get_the_category()) as $cat) {echo $cat->cat_ID . ' ';} ?>

    Thanks.

    there is a documented param to restrict the list to a single cat.

    You said.. "there is a documented param to restrict the list to a single cat"

    Can you please tell me where this is documented? I looked on the page on the plugin on your site, in the readme, and in the code.

    Thanks!

    I am using the journalized 3 column theme and I'm trying to show the recent posts in column b. For some reason, they appear with the list bullets and it also adds it's own "Recently Posted" box that messes my theme up. Can anyone help me by telling me how to remove the box and the bullets? Please!
