Articles

Description

The Articles plugin allows you to display a list of posts you wish to feature/highlight.

Upgrading

If you used Articles version 1.2 or earlier, please use the Upgrade button on the settings page to upgrade your data for version 1.3.

Choosing Articles

To add post to your Articles list, simply add a custom field (below the big text field on the post/page edit form) to the post:

Key: article
Value: 1

Showing the Articles List

There are two methods for showing the articles list.

Token Method

The token method is the easier way to show your articles list, and is enabled by default. To show your articles list, simply add the following to a page or post:

###articles###

and your articles list will appear in this place in the page/post.

Template Tag Method

You can always add a template tag to your theme (in a page template perhaps) to show your articles list:

<?php if (function_exists('aka_show_articles')) { aka_show_articles(); } ?><h3>Known Issues</h3>

Token Processing Time

Using the token method to show your Articles list will add very minor additional processing to each post display on your site.

Installation

  1. Download the plugin archive and expand it (you’ve likely already done this).
  2. Put the ‘articles.php’ file into your wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Go to the Plugins page in your WordPress Administration area and click ‘Activate’ for Articles.
  4. Go to Options > Articles to configure your Articles settings.

FAQ

What is the custom field name?

By default, Articles uses ‘_ak_article’ as the custom field name. You can change this by changing the following line at the top of the plugin (in the plugin code):

define('AKA_META_KEY', '_ak_article');

If you have used the default or another custom field name, you’ll need to upgrade your data to your new custom field name. The plugin does not do this for you.

Can I change the custom field name?
