Blog Summary

Blog Summary produces a semantic, hAtom-enabled list of the latest blog post excerpts with the shortcode `[blog-summary]`.


After activating this plugin, simply use the shortcode [blog-summary] wherever you want a list of recent entries. The following optional attributes are parsed by this shortcode to customize the output:

  • count - Number of recent entries to show. Default is 5.
  • grouptag - HTML element to wrap all recent entries. Default is ol.
  • entrytag - HTML element to wrap each entry. Default is li.
  • titletag - HTML element to wrap each entry title. Default is h4.
  • datetag - HTML element to wrap each entry date. Default is span.
  • commentstag - HTML element to wrap each entry comments link. Default is span.
  • summarytag - HTML element to wrap each entry summary. Default is div.

You may specify all or some of the attributes above. Attributes are optional and can be given in any order.

[blog-summary count="3" titletag="h2" datetag="p" commentstag="div"]

And so on. A very simple plugin.
