The Posts in Sidebar plugin has just been updated to version 1.7 and now it sports a series of changes. From day to day I receive requests both in the forum and via email from users who launch their idea. I think this is a very good thing for developers. The plugin is constantly evolving, also thanks to these suggestions.
The new version has this changelog:
- The plugin now can display not only posts, but also pages and custom post types.
- Now the author of the post can be displayed next to the date and comments.
- The content of the posts can now be displayed as Full content, meaning that the post is displayed as in a single post page (useful for a video-only posts, for example).
- The link at the end of the excerpt can now be displayed as Read more… (or whatever the user wants).
- Added French translation, thanks to Thérèse Lachance.
Many other changes have been done. What remains to do is:
- retrieve posts via posts format;
- retrieve posts via custom taxonomies.
I hope to have the time to do that. :)
