WordPress Post Plugins Now Widgets

I have long intended to make my post plugins into widgets but have only just got to it. In fact it turned out to be an easy process.

Version 2.3.4 of the plugins also adds the option to exclude or include the current post from the output.

WordPress Plugin: Highlight Author Comments

Just posted a rather simple plugin to highlight the comments made by the author of a post among all the other comments.

I’ve seen lots of ways of doing the job but they all seem to involve hacking the code of your template or of WordPress files. The new plugin does the job automatically — all you have to do is provide a snippet of CSS to apply to the special comments.

WordPress, Tagging, and the Post Plugins

Version 2.3.3 beta of my post plugins adds support for WordPress 2.3’s built-in tagging.

You can find recent posts with a particular tag, similar posts that have any of a bunch of tags, random posts sharing all specified tags, or whatever permutation you like.

The new version also adds the much requested ability to include as well as exclude posts by category.

Fix Some Things, Break Some Things

In updating my post plugins to work with WordPress 2.3 I managed to break various things too. Versions 2.3.2, just posted, fix a bad interaction between tags and categories and correct issues with excluded categories.

I might be able to extend the plugins to do something useful with tags now that I understand them a little better.
