    Hi there,

    just want to ask if this plugin is still in production and you’ll provide your audience with some updates?

    All the best,
    Steve

    Hi Steve,
    Yes the plugin is still in production and receiving updates as needed. If you have any feedback on features you’d like to see please let us know!

    Hi Jeremy,

    thank your for the reply. I think my colleague was in contact with one of you. The only thing that we have is, that on adminpage the articles show which issues they related to. That will be a good feature.

    Beside of this there is no extension like this. There are some tutorials out there but with this and your add-ons its perfect to add a new magazine look to the page.

    All the best,
    Steve

    It is good to see you are still active on IssueM. I have an idea for a feature that you might also want to consider. In brief, please let us make more of the Cover Image that is uploaded to the Edit Issues page when using IssueM.

    Currently, the Cover Image can be used as a visual Cue in the Archive. To do this one needs to set the size in IssueM settings and use Appearance>Theme Options>Templates and, there, turn on Featured Images under ‘Archive’. However, this is rather a limited use for the Cover Image which, after all, is a shorthand for a complete edition. IssueM help says that the Cover Image should show briefly when a reader clicks on a Past Issue (Archive) but it certainly doesn’t happen in our set-up (shawsheet.com); neither does the Cover Image show when the reader lands on the Current Issue page. As a result, if you don’t provide a .pdf (as we don’t) the whole cover image is only visible in the little used Archive/Past Issue page and, there, it is essential that it is displayed at a small size, not at its native 1536×2048. I would like a way to include the cover image on the Current Issue page. Perhaps it could be placed in a way similar to [issuem_featured_rotator]? Obviously, it would be necessary to also be able to control its size at display time so that the layout works with your theme. Alternatively, it would be good to show the Cover Image first before the Current Issue page with its tables of articles etc. is fully displayed.
