  • The nightly builds are looking really good, i’m pleasantly surprised at how much the admin pages are getting cleaned up. Looking forward to a nice 1.1.
    I’m working on a site for someone where i’m trying to manage the whole site through WP, but there are 2 sticking points relating to categories:
    1. If i specify a single category for a page, it ignores the maximum posts per page setting. This has been noted elsewhere, seems like a bug.
    2. If i include a single-category page inside of another single-category page, the included page incorrectly inherits the category of the master page. In other words, setting a $cat on the included page has no effect. The only apparent way to make this work is with either a frame-based page, or an iframe (the latter being the lesser of 2 evils). Is there a way to reset $cat mid-page?

  • Another thing that could be tweaked- the edit page uses the same number of posts limit as the index page. It would be nice if they were separate settings.



    I don’t know about the nightlies but in 1.2 you can edit the edit.php file.
    There was a this line:
    if (empty($m)) $showposts = 15;
    which I changed to the number I required.
    Not very user friendly but it works.
