Plugin Request (8 posts)

    I would like to put forth an idea for a plugin. And ask for someone to write it.

    Here is the idea:

    I would like to be able to control how I show category posts. I would like this control throughout the Pages Feature, not just the index page. ALthough I would also like this control on the index page too.

    What am trying to achieve is this:

    Firstly, On the index page, I would like two different categories to show under two different headings, restricted to X number of posts showing. For example - 5 posts showing under one heading (under one category) and 6 posts showing under another heading (under another category). No other categories would show anywhere else on the index page.

    Next, on another page created using the Pages Feature I would like to show one specific category and about 6 of the most recent posts from that category.

    I guess I would like to just be able to drop categories where ever I like.

    Please let me know if this needs more explaining.

    Would you write this for me???

    Ummm, trying to get myself back to the top of the discussion list, so someone might notice my post and come to my aid.

    Thank you in advance.

    Surprised no one has jumped on this one. I thought it might have been something that many others would be looking for too.

    chrisjdavis from IRC had this suggestion:

    one plugin that takes a cat and a number of posts as variables then you could just drop the function where you want it and throw in the variables

    How does that sound for getting us started?

    I was told how it is done but keep forgetting to let you know, sorry buddy. Turns out there is no need for a plugin.

    See "Advanced Use by Ryan" at the bottom of this Post: http://codex.wordpress.org/The_Loop

    It was quite easy. And all you need to do is add the index page loop to any other pages page for the loops to work.
