For a long time there was no update of my Linklist plugin because it simply worked, no need for a change. The other day I got a request to expand the functionality and I agreed to the proposal.
Version 0.5 now contains the option to include/exclude individual posts or pages from displaying the linklist:
The plugin still assumes that you want to add the linklist ater each post or page because that’s why you installed the plugin after all. Nevertheless you can disable the list by de-selecting the provided checkbox.
If you want to change the display for an existing post/page you not need to go to the posts edit page but can easily do it using the Quick edit feature:
I decided to use a drop down menu instead of a check box because WordPress renders the edit screen in a wilful manner and it can’t be manipulated (Can it? Drop me a mail!).
To change the display of the linklist for a large amount of posts/pages you do not need to edit every single post/page individually but can use the Bulk Edit feature:
(If you don’t know how to use Quick or Bulk Edit you can learn it on wordpress.tv.)
You can update your installation by using WordPress’ own update feature or by downloading it from the repository.
The last update to the pagebar plugin has been made over a year ago. Since all new ideas will be included in version 3 and the plugin was working fine with every new update of WordPress there was no need for an update.
It’s time to think about version 3 of pagebar. In this series I try to explain what I am planning for this new major version and invite you to discuss my plans.
Part 1: Direct page access
I always wanted to add a fast and direct page selection. The easiest way would be to add a selection box containing all page numbers. This might work if you’re having about 10 pages but if your blog is really, really large, say about 300 pages, a select box with 300 numbers would be quite clumsy: Continue reading Ideas for pagebar v3 – Part 1: Direct page access
One of the main problems of the automagic insertion of postbbar was a second query in the sidebar displaying “Recent posts” that is used by many themes. Version 3.3 introduced a new function called “is_main_query” which enables the plugins to display the postbar only after the main main query. I hope this works for all themes because @toscho thinks that the function has some issues.
Finally there is a new translation for pagebar: Romanian (ro_RO). I received the translation ages ago, excuses go to Web Geek Science
