    first: great plugin! never saw an easier way to create custom queries that fast and easy.

    a nice feature would be, to be able to put shortcode of a certain query into a post/page instead of creating new pages for every query you've got. with that it would be possible to write an intro text or to collect several queries on one page and so on...

    what do you think of it?

    Hey owcv!

    All right! First post about this plugin! Thanks for the support.

    I am actively working on a lot of great new features for this plugin and shortcodes are definitely on the list. Since you are excited about it, I'll go ahead and make a quick release with shortcodes just for you.

    Just so you know, since this is still in beta, upgrades from 1 version to the next might be hairy for a little bit. I recommend just sticking it out, and you should be very happy with the final results.

    Thanks again, look for an update tomorrow.
    Jonathan

    This is more than great!
    Shortcode works!
    Marvellous!

    When will beta be over? Anything I have to be aware of since then?

    My main reasoning for staying in beta is that I'm still adding new features, refactoring the programming, and I don't have a great way to test it on anything except my development site. I don't use WordPress enough in my work life to get a chance to test plugins on different setups.

    Generally, the plan is to get all my planned features into 1.3, let it sit in beta for a little bit so people can report issues, then make an official release.

    While in beta, I recommend Deactivating and Activating the plugin after each update. WordPress devs are warring right now over properly handling plugin upgrades, so there isn't a standard solution to it yet. In 1.3 I plan on implementing my own upgrading solution to take care of this issue.

    If you're interested in helping beta test it, we would really appreciate the help. The biggest concerns I have at the moment are dealing with Page queries, and a new feature coming in 1.3 called overrides. I can give you more details if you're interested.

    I've build a forum for discussions and tutorials. It's a little bare at the moment, but I plan on making a lot of new screencasts and tutorials for both this and widget wrangler when the new version of that is ready.
