Allows users to upload, manage, search, and download publications, documents, and similar content (PDF, Power-Point, etc.).
This widget seems like a good idea, but it’s weak in the execution. For example, while there is an option for ordering the past issues (by “Latest” or “manual… drop and drag) neither seems to work.
In addition, some of the issues in the archives fail to appear in the list that is on the blog.
Finally, I notice that several questions to the developers remain unresolved.
Thank you very much for this plugin, is great and very easy to use.
I'd love to be able to sort by different columns such as post_title.
And I would like to insert a link to an individual publication using the WYSIWYG editor.
But is still great being able to add a category to a post or page and forget about manually creating links to documents is awesome!
I wanted a nice solution to list out monthly newsletters as an archive. This fits my need perfectly and takes care of all the formatting and categories.
Just need to read the FAQ and support pages to find out all the cool options that are available.
I was looking for something that lists uploaded PDF documents in a pull-down list, and the WP Publication Archive is the closest thing I could find (I hacked the code to display docs in a pull-down list). If you want the hacked code, please contact Joe Nasevich at Whispering Woods Software.
I would give 5 stars, but the documentation is wrong (e.g. when setting up categories for your documents, use the category name, not the slug - see discussion Category filter is not working and shows all files).
