Category Shortcode

Plugin adds shortcode capability for adding posts by category to a page.

=How do I create a valid category tag?

A tool has been provided under the tools menu (Category Shortcode). Use this generate valid tags. Note: the tool cannot be used to generate a tag that displays multiple categories, but the shortcode does support this.

=How do I style the output?

I've made div classes around the content data. These classes are: csc_post_thumbnail csc_post_title csc_post_date csc_post_author csc_post_category csc_post_excerpt csc_post_content csc_break (a div between each post)

There is also a style div around the entire post with a class of csc_post and then either csc_excerpt, full or title to help with styling. csc_post csc_excerpt csc_title csc_full

An example style to modify the size of the title would be

.csc_post_title { font-size: 14px; }

These properties can be set to display: none; to hide the data. More advanced styling could be done modifying the php in the section commented OUTPUT STYLING.
