    The opt-in front page plugin lets you add posts to your front page on an opt-in basis, rather than remove them on an opt-out basis. Upon activating the plugin, only posts within the category with a slug of ‘blog’ will be displayed on your front page.

    Note that the opt-in front page plugin de-facto enables you to use WordPress as a multi-blog platform:

    - Set the default category’s slug to ‘blog’
    - Create one category per user, or topic, whatever (your ‘blogs’)
    - At your option, use the front page to opt-in all posts from all blogs, or as a separate blog with the more important stuff only

    I've just downloaded and installed this plug-in. I love it! Only I get the following error:

    WordPress database error: [You have an error in your SQL syntax near '' at line 1]
    SELECT COUNT(ID) FROM

    WordPress database error: [You have an error in your SQL syntax near '' at line 1]
    SELECT COUNT(ID) FROM

    Is there a workaround for this, please?

    Does this change my rss feed? Does rss output all entries, or just the front page entries?

    just the page entries at the moment

    i've plans to change the rss feed in the next version as well.

    this page is generating lots of 404s. would a moderator be so kind to correct the initial url to:

    yes, thats the problem i have too!
    it probably doesnt match with 1.5.1 someone should modify that script :)

    Is this working with 1.5.2? It doesn't seem to do anything. Also, can I edit the file so that it call using a custom slug with another title? I tried it both ways, but neither did anything.

    Thanks!!!

    The answer to my own question is yes. I changed the cagegory name, and now that is my front page. I guess it took a minute or so for my server to update...maybe I am to spoiled! Thanks for the great plugin!

    This plugin is the holy grail for me, been searching for a long time for this kind of thing! However, when I set it all up my home page simply displays;

    'Fatal error: Call to undefined function: mysql_real_escape_string() in /home/sites/site177/web/wp-content/plugins/sem-opt-in-front.php on line 134'

    can anyone help?

    Is it possible to opt-out a category? I have my wordpress blog set up with multiple categories and i'd rather have just one that I can choose to opt out.

    you can use an asides plugin to opt stuff out. when you'll eventually decide to opt out a second and a third category, however, you'll curse yourself for not having decided to opt stuff in instead.
