Static Front Page plugin vs. Fold Page List plugin: Bug! (9 posts)

    i have two plugins installed:
    -Fold Page List plugin
    http://www.webspaceworks.com/resources/cat/wp-plugins/30/
    -Static Front Page plugin
    http://www.semiologic.com/software/static-front/
    Both work fine, but don't want to work together; explanation:
    When using the Static Front Page plugin, the Home Page (slug: home) doesn't show its child pages, as it's supposed to when using the Fold Page List plugin.
    Whaddahell?
    Any idea? (plugins did work fine together in WP 1.5.2)

    the static front page plugin 'removes' the front page link from the wp page list. if the fold page list relies on this function, I'd expect the described bug.

    Hi,

    I've not yet dug into it, but my gut feeling on looking at the description of how the static front page plugin works is as Denis-de-Berna describes...

    Fold Page List is an adapted version of the standard wp_list_pages function, so the 'removal' of the 'home' link is certainly going to cause some headaches... What is surprising though is that it seems (I've not yet checked) to have been working in versions prior to 2.0.

    For myself, I use the home.php file in the active theme for generating a different homepage, but this lies outside the normal 'pages' structure and so cannot have sub-pages associated with it.

    I'd like to resolve this incompatibility, but if Static FP is taking away the very thing I need for FPL to work, it's going to be 'interesting'.

    For piotr82, both the Fold_* plugins work to collapse the navigational hierarchies to their top-most elements (first level items), and to only expand the relevant sub-lists for the currently selected page/category. They are of benefit if you have long lists of pages and/or categories that include many levels of sub-navigation. If you do not have any such hierarchic navigation then they will be of, at best, very limited use.

    On the other hand, if you DO have complicated lists of pages/categories and sub-pages/sub-categories going many layers deep, then they are, potentially, very useful in cleaning up the presentation of navigation to the minimum needed for any particular location within your site.

    Hope that helps clarify somewhat.

    Best regards

    Rob

    This looks kinda weird, sorry Denis-de-Bernardy - I'd NOT expect the described bug, as both plugins worked pefectly together under WP 1.5.2.

    @tikimatic: i believe that wordpress changed the permalink procedure someone, and god knows what else the devs have changed in the background.

    Hi diofref,

    What version are you using? There was an update on 5th January to sort out a couple of gremlins and things which broke under WP2.0, among them permalinks.

    As ever, the Fold Category List support page provides details and a link to the current version.

    If you continue to have difficulties an email to the address in the header of the plugin is more likely to see a quick response.

    Best regards

    Rob

    Whoops!... The Fold Category List plugin on the support page (above) was, for some reason, still giving the old version (1.0b2 - November 8, 2005). This has now been updated to download the real current version, 1.0b3, dated 5 January, 2006.

    This should resolve any permalink problems under WP2.0

    Apologies all round

    Rob
