Upgrade to Version 0.63.1 broke the site
By , for WP 4.2.4

As soon as I upgrade this plugin (Version 0.63.1) I got this message:
The plugin list-category-posts/list_cat_posts.php has been deactivated due to an error: Plugin file does not exist.

Clicking on ACTIVATE did fix it, but one site went 2? days without page content until I noticed the error.

Very flexible but...

There is a terrific range of options to format how you wish, but it can take a lot to work out how to make it do your bidding (especially if like me you are css and html savvy but not a professional); and even then sometimes it doesn't. Needs an expert or two to provide more 'how to' blogs or YouTube snippets.

Great plugin: Versatile and Dependable
By , for WP 4.2.2

I've used this plugin for years and it's a huge timesaver. Allows much flexibility as well as producing great results on a consistent basis.

Tiny but very useful. Great job!

archiving older posts
By , for WP 4.2.2

Wanted to archive posts from previous years and only show this year in last posts page.
First tried a separation with categories but WP keeps showing them all on last posts page.
Then tried a plugin with an "archived" status, WP was not impressed and still showed them all.
This plugin allowed me to get the required result:
instead of last posts home page use a static page (not static posts) with this code:
[catlist year=2015 excerpt=full excerpt_strip=no date=yes dateformat="j F"]
the code mimics the normal lasts posts page, just needed to add the date
and in the archive pages just a list with the links to the posts like this:
[catlist year=2014 date=yes dateformat="j F"]
I am happy.

I use List Category Post and UIkit on my site. And they work together perfectly. I can build as many LCP template as my heart content based on UIkit slideshow, slider, slideset, or just plain list. Hope you guys can find the solution for the loop hiccup. Thanks.
