Plugin questions (9 posts)

    1) I'm using Customizable Post Listings plugin by Coffee2Code - I would like it to not display the latest entry, as that will display on the main page anyway. I only want it to display the latest posts exclusing the latest one displayed.

    So the current post is how many, I don't want how many to display in the recent posts. So if it is current, it does not display in recent.

    2) Is there a plugin that displays the last page the user has viewed? That is to say something like:

    "Recent items you have visited:

    Dirty Horses
    I like Kettles"

    and displays them as links?

    I would like this to display below the Filed Under element. Filed Under will have a category image displayed below it, so it will hang about below that.

    http://sekhu.net/wp is the site.

    Thanks in advance

    1) Customisable post listings has an offest function - check the authors' site for which parameter it is.

    Well, I know of the offset fucntion - the problem with that is that it omits the last entry in the recent posts, rather than the first, which is what I want it do.

    So how would I reverse it?

    Thanks in advance

    Not sure I am understanding correctly. For CPL the the offset is described as
    $offset : The number of posts to skip; default is 0 So (as I have used it), If there are 5 posts: 1 (newest), 2, 3, 4 and 5 (oldest), using an offset of one, CPL will display posts 2, 3, 4 and 5.

    Well I ended up adding more code and specifying order and date and so on, and then setting the offset for it to remove the latest entry. It works though so I'm not bitching.

    Any idea on 2) ?

    Yeah, you have to spec all the parameters up the the one you want to change, an I think that means all of them for the offset function :)
    As for 2, the only ones I can think of are the breadcrumbs ones, but they only show where you are, not where youv'e been.

    Hmm related to 1) is it possible to change the bullet points from what they are to an image?

    I tried to create a class for li called point and then added li="point" but got a parse error. Would I have to apply this to the actual ul rather than li which would then apply to everything else?

    And yeah breadcrumbs are suitable for I'm trying to do.

    Thanks again.

    For breadcrumbs, I use the plugin from here:

    For the list style, you might find something useful here:

    Thanks for the reply, I think I meant breadcrumbs are not suitable for my needs:)

    As for taming lists, I sort of figured the image out just before you made that post. The only thing is I would like the excerpt to be aligned with the title so that it looks more even.

    Cheers
