    hi BauB. Good job you did on this! I already included it on my http://blog.naehler.com which is sort of a blog where i am momentarily just testing all the plugins that you great guys write. looks good so far but i recognized that my quicktags don't work with it anymore. need to check this...
    (error: savebutton has no properties,
    the error code: var submitp = savebutton.parentNode;)

    Pretty nice plugin BauB, would there be anyway to integrate comments so that people could leave comments like the actual asides? That would be great.

    Another little thing I would like to see is the ability to choose descending or ascending for lists, date is fine, but I would like to have them descending so the most recent post is on top.

    Strike that last comment, the ability is already there I just overlooked it. Doh!

    7milesdown: No. This plugin is a standalone plugin.

    whizky: what are quicktags? I noticed that I don't have the aside content getting filters. If there's a way to do this, please let me know, but I know of none right now.

    shawng77: the commenting was something that I thought was too much. It would require me to figure out how to create single pages (using the theme's template and all) to show the aside and trick WordPress into thinking the Asides are actual posts. This would create the problem of excluding the asides from the index, which adds a lot of queries that (imo) aren't necessary.

    I could take another approach and have the user save the template (would be saved as an option) and then I might be able to get something going. Or I could just use a popup, negating everything I just said yet still keeping a clean design without using any templates.

    Just a note on Miniblog: I went (when I used a collection of hacks and other plugins to do the same thing) from 111 queries on my index to 22ish. This was the main reason I wrote it. 22 queries on one page is high, but 111 was just absurd.

    The plugin that caused the most queries was the category visibility plugin (which is great btw, but adds too many queries for my taste).

    BauB: That is understandable. Valid points. Nice plugin nonetheless, and I'm using it right now. Would it be possible to have an rss feed for this? Or some way of an archive system?

    Good idea shawng77. I'll take it into consideration for the next major version (as well as the comment thing).

    whizky: version 0.1.1 filters your content through 'the_content's filters, so I think that should fix your problem... actually, checking out your actual problem, I see the problem.

    It seems that quicktags won't work with anything but the official write page. If anyone knows of a way to get this working, please say so.

    Is there anyway to control the number of text display, the reader can click on the "read more" Very nice plugin,

    It can't take them to a single page (I don't even know if this is possible with WordPress plugins), but you can use PHP's substring function to shorten the entry text. After that you could use some fancy CSS to show the rest on rollover or something. Or perhaps some javascript tricks.

    Needless to say, I've added this to the todo list.

    BTW< you might want to consider at least one default entry. I got errors at first when I added the code without an entry posted yet. When I added the first entry everything cleared up.

    Thanks for the suggestion 7milesdown. A way to fix the problem would be to add an if(is_array($your_var_array)) { before the foreach and an } after it. I will fix this problem next release by having it return an empty array if there aren't any entries.

    I just released Miniblog 0.1.5 that adds quicktag support and some other things.

    Miniblog and Donkie Quote. When I activated Miniblog I can write and manage Miniblog but the Donkie Quote admin area is the same as Miniblog. So what I meant the Miniblog and Donkie Quote admin area is the same so I can only manage the Miniblog.

    rocky2889: this behavior is very strange. It may very well be a bug in WordPress that's causing it because I can't find any code in my script that would cause something like this to happen.

    Perhaps we found a new bug? Until some light is shed on this issue, I'll update shortly with a version that puts the Miniblog plugin in under another option.

    Edit: or maybe not. It does the same regardless of the menu in which I put it. I will work on it a little bit and reply with results.

    Edit2: after more research I found that this problem happens when you have more than one plugin loading a submenu on the same page.

    It is, unfortunately, a bug in WordPress that for some reason doesn't always show the correct menu function specified (when the script defined it). This happens with all plugins I have except the ImageHeadlines plugin which uses a very eloquent method of plugin display that would require a bit of hacking for me to impliment and would still overwrite other pages in some instances.

    To replicate this bug, find two plugins that adds a submenu each to a top-level menu. The right-most menu option displayed will overwrite the one(s) to the left of it.

    I know of no fix or hack for this at the moment.

    A fix is present. It is a bug.

    To fix it, download the latest menu-header.php file from here: http://trac.wordpress.org/browser/trunk/wp-admin/

    BauB,
    Yes, I replaced with the fix and everything is okay. Thanks for the great work.

    RSS feed capability was added and the empty array error is fixed in Miniblog 0.2.

    Why does one of my regular entries show up on the sidebar. I created one entry via the miniblog, but I get two. One from the main content area, and one my actual entry. This started when i updated.

    Its including the last entry on my main screen. Take a look.

    Im not sure why it started doing this. I unactivated the plugin, and reactivated the new one. My front page has that now.

    This was caused by some code that I accidently left in while testing the new means for searching (which I forgot to document). Redownload 0.2 and you should no longer have that problem.

    Apologies for that.

    Ok. Sorry about that problem. The new version should fix it so that it only searches using the LIKE term if a % (wildcard) is entered into the blog identifier setting in the function.

    Download Miniblog 0.2.1 for the fix.

    Arg...well, after reading your post more thoroughly, what I fixed wasn't actually your problem.

    Your problem is very strange... if you don't mind, can you post the code you use to display the posts here?

    BauB,
    Is would be nice if you include the WYSIWYG from http://mudbomb.com/archives/2005/02/02/wysiwyg-plugin-for-wordpress or other WYSIWYG.
    Thanks

    BauB,
    Thanks for adding the RSS fuctionality. Working like a charm over on my site. Thanks for the work you are putting into this.

    Miniblog 0.2.8 now supports Mubomb's WYSIWYG editor.

    It was actually a very small bit of code to add.

    I'm pretty new to WordPress. Can someone help me understand the difference between this plugin and something like rebelpixel's recent links?

    Thanks.
