  • What is the issue with the plugin?

    It has stopped working – all I get is the category item title. Seems I’m not the only one.

    Would you happen to have a copy of the a previous version – .66 perhaps?

    No sorry, I just started to work with the plugin myself.

    It seems to work ok for what I need of just a list from certain category and a thumbnail image.

    What is your URL you’re having issues on?

    Yes I can list titles but not content

    This was workgin beautifull but now only shows search phrase.

    [catlist id=997 search=”Community Playthings” excerpt=full excerpt_strip=no title_tag=h5 exclude]

    I released version 0.67.1 with a bugfix which probably fixes this issue.

    When you need to download a different version of a plugin, go to the “Developers” tab on the plugin’s page. This lists zip files for every release of a plugin. Just download the version you need and replace the plugin in your blog with the ones in the zip file you just downloaded.

    Sorry for the inconvenience, let me know if the update goes well for you. Thanks!

    No sorry – still not working. Showing only the title of posts picked out by search:

    [catlist id=997 excerpt=full search=”lightspeed” excerpt_strip=no title_tag=h5]

    This worked fine until this update installed.

    Will revert to previous version until this is sorted.

    Have tried 0.64 and 0.66 neither of which seem to work now. It’s a real foul up. Can’t help feeling irritated by this. Costing me several hours work just when I really don’t need it.

    It’s my fault for reliying on plugin authors. Must try to avoid!

    dlongm01 the version with the issue was 0.67. If you tried older versions and the latest update, and it still doesn’t work for you, then there might be another plugin causing issues in your blog. Or something in your blog might be broken.

    Writing the plugin’s code, maintaining it, adding new features and answering support issues on this forum costs me several hours too. I don’t get paid for it, I just do it. I do feel irritated when these issues happen and I don’t have free time to fix them. I also feel irritated when people complain about something open source developers are doing for free. So have some patience.

    Feel free to stop relying on plugin authors who are doing this for free and hire a freelance programmer to fix the issues you’re having in your blog, it’s what’s great about Free Software, anyone can fix the code ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    WordPress is a complex ecosystem, the core has its own functionality, the themes add more, and every plugin you install affects the whole system. So this stuff happens.

    If you’re running really important blogs where human life is at risk if a plugin stops working, you should have a staging server where you test all the plugin updates first, and once you’re sure they’re working, replicate the same environment in your production server. That way you won’t panic when an update breaks a plugin.

    Easily said, easily said. Doing something ‘for free’ doesn’t make you right.
