Recommended Stories for WordPress

Description

This plugin can list a selectable number of links to the latest sticky posts, within an animated box that enters the screen when it is scrolled down more than a specified percent of the page height. Admins can set the parameters below:

  1. the percent of vertical scroll where the animated box appears
  2. the number of recent sticky posts to list
  3. if the posts have thumbnail there is an option to turn on / turn off the thumbnail theme capability
  4. since the sticky posts are presented this way, maybe there is no need to keep them on the front page anymore, so the third option allows to disable the sticky property of posts in the main loops
  5. the module can be disabled for specific posts, pages or custom posts from the post editor via a specific metabox

Other features

  1. when displaying a post that is sticky, the corresponding link is eliminated from the animated box
  2. if the sticky posts list remains empty, the animated box is not displayed anymore

Screenshots

  • Admin interface
  • Animated box with recommended stories

FAQ

The animated box is not animated, it just appears at all times

This is most probable a jQuery conflict with the theme or with another plugin. Try to switch to the default theme and / or disable other plugins to check where the conflict is.
