I was very happy using Show Category Posts plugin, but it doesn't work on WP 1.5.
When I add the command:
<?php echo show_category_posts('category=8&scp_limit=5&scp_status=publish&sort_order=DESC&sort_field=post_date'); ?><?php if ($scp_posts) : foreach ($scp_posts as $post) : start_wp(); ?>
It gives me a parse error: Parse error: parse error, unexpected $ in...
I installed 1.5 on a new website, just to try it, and I use Show Categories, to make my blog look like a "Journal", with a bunch of sections on the first page, each one showing a certain Category. Am I missing something in 1.5 that will work like that without the plugin?
Thanks a lot!!
