Featured Posts Scroll

A basic javascript based scrolling display of post titles and thumbnails.

  • Download the zip file and extract the contents. Upload the 'featured-posts-scroll' folder to your plugins directory (wp-content/plugins/).

  • Activate the plugin through the WordPress 'Plugins' menu.
  • Recommendation: Refer to "How to Use" and "FAQ" for useful info.

How to Use

To use this plugin to display the most recent posts in any category and with any tag:

  • Copy and paste the code below to your desired template location:
<?php if (function_exists('fps_show')) { echo fps_show(NULL); } ?>

If you would like to customize what posts are displayed:

  • Copy and paste the code below to your desired template location:
<?php if (function_exists('fps_show')) {
            $args = array(
                'cat'     => '',/* comma separated list of category ids to include (put '-' in front of ids to exclude) */
                'tag'     => '' /* comma separated list tag slugs to include */);
            echo fps_show($args);
  • Modify the '$args' array to filter out only the posts that you would like displayed. Delete any entries in the array you don't want to use (be careful with the commas. See here(http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/WP_Query#Parameters) for more details on all valid query parameters. Contact me if you have any questions about getting just the posts that you want.
  • Recommendation: Create a new 'featured' tag and put it on the posts that you want to displayed and add that category's slug to the array in the code above.

If you would like to display the featured posts scroll inside of a post:

  • Insert the following shortcode in your post:
  • Arguments can also be used with the shortcode to specify posts to display:
[fps cat="-3" tag="featured"]
