DD Last Viewed

Description

This plugin contains the lastViewed-widget. This widget shows the users recently viewed/visited Posts, Pages, Custom Types and even Terms in a widget.

The widget is fully customizable:

  • Filter on Types and Terms
  • Set the maximum
  • Set thumbnail on/off
  • Show Content(rich or plain) or Excerpt
  • Set the excerpt length
  • Add links to elements
  • Set cookie lifetime

//NEW//

Customize the widget template by copy the path “dd-templates/lastviewed-widget.php” from the plugin directory into your theme directory. You can now start customizing the widgets template.

//NEW//

If one of the posts with the filtered types or terms gets visited in the front, a cookie sets/updates with an array of visited ids. Each widget has his own cookie, so you can set as many widgets as you want.
