    Hi hiphopruckus. I'm happy you like the plugin. In version 0.3.3 of the plugin (uploaded just now), I added a function the_wp_tiles(), which you can use in your theme files. If you put this in your category template, it will automatically show only posts in that category.

    <?php if ( function_exists ( 'the_wp_tiles' ) ) the_wp_tiles(); ?>

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Thanks Mike. I have a few more questions. Are you gonna to eventually make this plugin into a widget? Also, I have a new theme and am having trouble trying to get the featured image to show up. Alot of times, i have posted an image and the theme (fanwood) automatically creates a thumbnail image on hiphopruckus.com after uploading from my harddrive. ALot of times, I don't designated an image as featured. Are you going to make it possible in the next iteration for the post-tiles plugin to find the image from a post even if it's not featured?

    Hi hiphopruckus, does the plugin not take images from posts without a featured image on your website? It should already fallback to either the first attached image, or else the first <img> tag in the post itself. If it doesn't, do you have a demo page I can check out?

    As for adding a widget to the plugin, I hadn't considered it, but it would actually be an option for themes with wide widget areas. I'll think about it.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Hey Mike,
    Yeah, it doesn't take the first image i post that is used as a thumbnail.
    It only looks for the credentials of "featured". How do i work around this?

    Also,
    The reason why i needed to get a widget is because the plugin shortcode doesn't work on my archive pages. Is there a workaround for this.

    Hi Hiphopruckus, I'm confused. You're saying WP Tiles does find the image even if there's no featured image?

    Then, with your category archive pages, did the function I posted earlier not work with version 0.3.3? Does it load the wrong posts? What happens?

    Yes. Wp-tiles does find the image with no featured image. Yes.

    concerning the category archive pages, when i put the short code in the php side of things it just reads back the short code.

    Try putting this code in your category.php, instead of the shortcode:

    <?php if ( function_exists ( 'the_wp_tiles' ) ) the_wp_tiles(); ?>

    Also, make sure the plugin is updated to version 0.3.3.

    It should automatically take the current category already. If you want to add a specific category, add it to the arguments along the following lines:

    <?php
    $the_cat_id = ID_FOR_YOUR_CATEGORY;
    $args = array (
        'posts_query' => array (
            'cat' => $the_cat_id
        )
    );
    the_wp_tiles ( $args );
    // (untested)
    ?>

    Can I replace the_wp_tiles with post-tiles for your plugin. I'm not using Wp-tiles after finding out about post-tiles.

    Hey are you ever gonna add pagination to this plugin? That would be excellent if you did.
