Support » Plugins » [Plugin: Advanced Category Excluder] plugin results in reversed post order

  • I used ACE for a while now and it works like a charm, however, I encountered a problem which forced me to disable the plugin

    Here it is:
    Normally in the Admin post management selection the newest post is on top, just like on the recent posts and on my frontpage

    When I enable the latest version of ACE, the order is reversed. The first post I’ve made is being displayed on the top, in the post management section, as wel as on my recent posts widget and the frontpage.

    Does anybody have a clue how this can happen? ACE reverses the order and that makes me unable to use ACE anymore.

    Thank you!

  • He zeikerd. I had exactly the same issue with that plugin, over a years-back version though, so I disabled it too. I only used it to exclude a few categories from the index, which can also be done with this simple line:
    <?php if (in_category('218')) continue; ?>
    (218 is of course the category to exclude).

    Hi (inderdaad ben ik een zeikerd, kijk maar op,
    Thanks! I know, however, I have some Video category’s and I want those to be expluded from Recent Posts list, the frontpage and nog show up on any other page except for the Video archive.

    That’s not possible i think using that code.

    Weird thing is, when I rebuild everything from scratch, it works fine, untill I import my posts. Then I reverses everything. Verry weird bug.

    Indeed, you’ll need a bit more of coding, or Googling… (now I’m a zeikerd 🙂 )

    I had the exact same thing with that plugin, I’ll have a look if I ever asked questions about it, but since I don’t use the plugin anymore, I don’t think that I solved my problems with it…

    I want the plugin to be fixed, or a solution found for it. I don’t really want to use a workaround. Unless there’s another good plugin like ACE (I doubt it) I want it fixed 🙂

    I am allready using a workaround now, but it’s not good enough yet I think 🙂 ACE would be better, and it’s weird it f*cks-up the posting listings.

    Just hope somebody come’s along, sees this post and say’s “how about the option here or there”
