asides and query_posts

  • Yesterday I was trying to get query_posts to exclude a category, but couldn’t get it to work. I assumed this was as I was using the asides as outlined here which don’t seem to use the WP1.5 loop. With a bit of trial and error, I think I have got something that will work with the classic template and allow query-posts to be used.

    Questions are:
    1. Should query_posts work with the asides instructions linked to above?
    2. If not, is it worth me testing further and documenting so that asides and query_posts can live happily together?

  • Adding to the questions, does anyone know what the follow code (from adding asides page) actually does.
    <?php
    if ($posts)
    {
    function stupid_hack($str)
    {
    return preg_replace('|</ul>s*<ul class="linklog">|', '', $str);
    }
    ob_start('stupid_hack');
    foreach($posts as $post)
    {
    start_wp();
    ?>

    As far as I can tell the asides work without it. It must do something though.

    replaces <ul class=”linklog”> with nothing.

    Thanks, now I just have to figure out why that is useful 🙂

    As far as I can understand it it will combine multiple asides so
    <ul class="linklog">
    <li>aside 1</li>
    </ul>
    <ul class="linklog">
    <li>aside 2</li>
    </ul>

    becomes
    <ul class="linklog">
    <li>aside 1</li>
    <li>aside 2</li>
    </ul>

    Who knows, someone might find this useful to know. Now to answer 1 and 2 myself aswell 🙂
