Version of "Advanced post list" is 0.3b8 valid on 01/12/2015
I have first chose "Advanced post list" for the purpose of producing lists of posts, but :
When you edit the "presets", may be the panel is not clear but it is possible to work with theoretically, but the main problem is that the puglin is unable to generate its own syntax (code generator) for "preset default parameters".
It generate a "compile" error (invalid php syntax : array php parser)
- I could not use it at all
- I wrote a message on this forum without any answer for one week
- I wrote a message with screens hotcopy in the GIT repository site three weeks ago without answer
The error generates a display panel (popup), but there are errors inside and it is impossible to just copy (or print) the content of the syntax generated (array of parameters of the preset generated) to engage any verification. The syntax seems valid but why an error ?
If you delete the preset, you will get an error elsewhere : just because just the first error was seen before... but as I could not find any error, I have just fully cleaned the concerned preset.
Why a display of the syntax corresponding to the preset is not displayed anywhere ??? Any error should be clearly displayed (don't mix up the parameters array which is needed to be shown first if an error occurs - just underscore error zone - and the code which should be introduced to get the same display without using the preset shortcode : this should be an help for "manual" use with the basic shortcodes.
Why not generate the parameters array only for the current preset for testing... (the "save preset" is just side to side with "test display"...
Because the full parameters are not well generated, the test display is unactive...
When you have ended and got the preset OK, you try a valid one you get a crash on the php site execution...
The plugin is UNUSABLE with "preset" until this syntax problem will not be solved
What make me to react in such a way is the lack of answer. I have spend a lot of time to check everything before sending this post, which, itself, have been an enormous time gap.
Note : when the popup for "error" is displayed the top half of application window is unactivated "greyed" !!!
There are a lot of options and it kinda works, but it doesn't really.
The interface for this plugin uses some weird skin that makes it hard to work with. Selection of pre-loaded items is unclear whether it sets the selection options also, since it never changes them in the UI. Generated shortcodes didn't work in widgets, which was my intended use-case. Uninstalled.
