WP Tiles
[resolved] Pages + Most recent post (2 posts)

    I am using the shortcode from http://wordpress.org/support/topic/manual-order-1?replies=2 with post_type set to "any" to add some specific pages and posts in a particular order:

    [wp-tiles posts_query='include=241,344,346,247,349&orderby=post__in&post_type=any' template='Alternative']

    Is there a way to specify the most recent post into this sequence so that I can have certain pages, certain posts and the most recent post?

    Thanks so much for making this plugin available.

    The easiest way (well..) to achieve this effect is with the gist you asked about in your other post: set the posts/pages up in their set places and let WP Tiles automatically come up with that last tile, that contains the most recent post.

    Alternatively, you could add a function to wp-tiles-data, that adds another tile to the tile array. Something like:

    add_filter( 'wp-tiles-data',function( $data ) {
        $posts = get_posts( array(
            'numberposts' => 1
            // Posts query goes here
        ) );
        $post = reset( $posts );
        $hideByline = apply_filters( 'wp-tiles-hide-byline', $hideByline, $post->ID, $post );
        $categories = wp_get_post_categories( $post->ID, array( "fields" => "all" ) );
        $category_slugs = $category_names = array();
        foreach( $categories as $category ) {
            $category_slugs[] = $category->slug;
            $category_names[] = $category->name;
        $data[] = array(
            "id"          => $post->ID,
            "title"       => apply_filters( 'the_title', $post->post_title ),
            "url"         => get_permalink( $post->ID ),
            "byline"      => $byline,
            "img"         => wp_tiles()->get_first_image( $post ),
            "color"       => $color,
            "bylineColor" => 'rgba(0,0,0,0.7)', // Your colour goes here
            "hideByline"  => false, // or true..
            "categories"  => $category_slugs
        return $data;
    } );

    Mind you: untested code!!

    Good luck!
