0.9 beta -- December 2 2009

  • Plugin launched

0.91 beta -- December 4 2009

  • Removed default from 'Read more linktext' so you don't have to have any if you don't want
  • Allowed option 'all' for 'Tags to strip' for those who wish to get rid of all HTML markup
  • Fixed small bug where 'Tags to strip' field was disappearing inappropriately

1.0 December 7 2009

  • Implemented selection of multiple categories from which posts will be displayed
  • Made it so 'Read more linktext' and 'Text ending' are not displayed when post is too short to require limiting

1.1 May 14 2010

  • Fixed the PHP error that showed up when no category was selected, and put in a warning
  • Made it so you can apply the word/character/paragraph limitation to a static front page
  • Made it so you can apply both post category/number limitation and word/character/paragraph limitation to main posts page, when it isn't the front page (i.e. you have a static front page)
  • Made it so that the post category is not displayed in the title of the homepage

1.2 June 6 2010

  • Bug fix: Made the hide category in page title a togglable option in the backend since it doesn't always seem to work :-P This is just a quick workaround until I have the time to devote to figuring out why my method of hiding the category in page title, doesn't always work (sigh!)

1.3 February 25 2011

  • Bug fix: The existing method of limiting by category was not working with WordPress 3.1 so I added in another method that should.
  • Bug fix: Made a small change having to do with hiding the category in the page title.
