Tekserve Press Mentions

Description

It’s easy to create simple custom post types, and create functional dependencies in your theme while doing so. Skip it! Use this plugin to create a theme-independent custom post type for your site to maintain and display a collection of articles. We use it for listing articles that we are mentioned in on our site, but you can display any list of external articles, with the original publication, author, and link to the original article. Easy.

FAQ

How do I include a logo or image?

Add a featured image to the Press Mention, just like a post.

How do I change the publication date displayed?

Change the publication date of the Press Mention to the original publication date of the article.

The template included doesn’t work. What gives?

It’s made for the Genesis framework (www.studiopress.com). If you’re not using this framework, the template won’t do anything but fill your error log. If enough people want a vanilla wordpress version, I’ll do it…
