Read and Understood

Records acknowledgements that specific users have read specific postings (or not).

Does RnU work with custom post types?

No, it does not.

At the heart of RNU, there is a function called append_post_notification and there is a line in there that says "if($post->post_type == 'post') {"

The intent is so that the Read-and-understood button doesn't show up on "regular" pages of the web site. Otherwise, visitors to the website might see the Read-and-Understood acknowledgement button on every page.

The post types are: Post (Post Type: 'post') Page (Post Type: 'page') Attachment (Post Type: 'attachment') Revision (Post Type: 'revision') Navigation menu (Post Type: 'nav_menu_item')

The program logic could be changed to be something of the nature of "is anything but (the 4 other types)", in which case, the RnU acknowledgment button would appear on pages of custom post types.

However, there may be people who are using the plugin who take advantage of the fact that the RnU button shows up only on posts of type 'post' and that it does NOT show up on custom post types.

Any enhancement along these lines would want to make the post-types user-selectable.

Are there any known issues?

Sometimes, using Chrome and perhaps in other browsers, the header row of the CSV file appears blank when automatically opened using Microsoft eXcel 2010. Hitting export again shows the download with the headers.
