It works great - just what I was looking for! (1 post)

    I found this plugin to be just what I was looking for.

    I could find no other plugin that deals with "OR/AND" for displaying categories. I can see that this plugin doesn't have much in the way of documentation, which could explain the lackluster response. It's a winner in my book!

    This effectively allows me to minimize the amount of categories I need to create, and then just pull posts that only rest in BOTH categories.

    For example, rather than having to create a total of 25 (current) categories:

    2011 <-1
    • Winter <-2
    • Spring <-3
    • Summer <-4
    • Fall <-5, etc.

    2010
    • Winter
    • Spring
    • Summer
    • Fall

    (on back to 2007... and in the future)

    ---

    I can have just 9 (current) categories and simply filter the posts by requesting 2011/winter, 2010/winter, etc:

    2011 <-1
    2010 <-2
    2009 <-3
    2008 <-4
    2007 <-5

    Winter <-6
    Spring <-7
    Summer <-8
    Fall <-9

    This plugin effectively allowed me to eliminate having to create redundant/nested categories, and only 1 category will need to be added per year. Wahoo! Thank you, Mapelo! I owe you a beer or a coffee! How can we make that happen?
