    Hi, Thanks for your great plugin.
    my question is: is there any way to have post offset? Start the count with an offset?
    Thanks a lot

    Explain offset just to make sure.

    offset means start showing post not from the first post: for example :

    [netsposts include_blog=’1′ days=’30’ taxonomy=’news’ list=’5′ offset=”5″]
    means the plugin will start showing from the 6 in the gategory news. so will ignore first 5 posts .
    Thanks

    So if you have taxonomy=’news,books’ both would start from the 6th?

    Show me the url please. Want to see if I can do something similar using css.

    Hi johnzenausa,
    i’m not agree with the CSS rule, I was wondering if for the single taxonomy there is a way to have offset, this would be a great option to use this plugin and restyle it as below:

    Okay I’ll look in to it. Maybe in the next update.

    Did you want to be able to offset different taxonomies separately on the same list?

    i would suggest below with one example:

    [netsposts include_blog=’1,2,5′ taxonomy=’news,entertainments’ list=’10’ offsets=’3,4′] WILL DO :

    list of 10 posts blog #1,2,5 in news,entertainments where the pluging will ignore first 3 posts for texonomy news AND ignore first 4 posts for texonomy entertainments .

    I think the offset concept would have more reason with the single taxonomy and blog 🙂
    realizing this feature will make this plugin even more efficient.
    Thanks

    Sorry about the delayed response but I forgot I had this feature already. I’ll have to add the explanation to the readme.txt file.

    There are two attributes for the offset.

    number_latest_x_posts_excluded

    which includes offsetting the latest posts from any category. So if you have number_latest_x_posts_excluded='3' it will not show the three most recent posts.

    The second argument is exclude_latest_x_posts_from_category so you may specify a category/taxonomy. So if you wanted to skip the three most recent posts from taxonomy “books” you would do so as follows:
    [netsposts taxonomy='books' exclude_latest_x_posts_from_category='books' number_latest_x_posts_excluded='3'].

    I redid the offsets as follows:

    Yes you now can with the following two arguments. 1) taxonomy_offset_names=” and 2) taxonomy_offsets=”. So for example if you wanted to offset three different categories it would look like so: [netsposts taxonomy_offset_names='books,flowers,sports' taxonomy_offsets='5,4,10'] then books would be offset by 5, flowers 4, and sports 10.
