azurecurve Series Index 1.0.0 Released

I have just had a second plugin published via the Plugins Directory; this one is a series index.

This plugin displays a series index using a custom series-index Shortcode. This plugin is multi-site compatible and contains an inbuilt show/hide toggle. The shortcode can be used on posts and pages; the format of the index and other options are user configurable through an Admin page.

Two custom fields (Series and Series Position) need to be added to each post in the series; these fields are used for selecting the posts and ordering them when the index is displayed.

There is a full range of options to configure the plugin for use which can be set via an options page in the WordPress Admin panel.

azurecurve Posts Archive Released

I recently created a WordPress archive of my Twitter posts using the plugin and theme from Ozh.

Part of the theme was a sidebar posts archive which I quite liked the look of and have now extracted and turned into a WordPress plugin so I can use it on any site (including this one):

Check out the archive in action in the sidebar to the right below the Calendar and above the Categories list.

The plugin also has a shortcode which can be used to add the posts archive to a page (which you can see here.

Not sure if I can actually say that this site has been launched until I have my first plugin ready for release (which hopefully will be soon), but the basics of the site are now in place so I guess it can beregarded as a soft-launch.

The first plugin, Posts Archive, is currently in beta test and a further three plugins will be following. The three are:

  • Series Index – Add a couple of custom fields to a post (Series and Series Position) and have an index displayed where you add the shortcode. I usually combine use of this shortcode with the next plugin.
  • Toggle Show/Hide – Allows a section of a page to be hidden with a toggle switch at the top.
  • Delay Contact Form 7 JQuery – The Toggle Show/Hide plugin showed up on one of my sites as causing compatibility problems with the Contact Form 7 plugin so I came up with a plugin to delay the load of Contact Form 7 unless it was necessary. This option works for me as I have never had a series index and contact form on the same page.
