Another week, another release of Show Post Categories. Over the last few days I created some internal releases, and now v2.2.3 is beginning to roll out at various WordPress installs. In case you did not yet receive any prompt for updates – you could hit the download button located on the right.
This new update is based on customer feedback I received via mail, it addresses few of the issues that users were encountering. As such it will include a number of bug fixes that will improve performance and correct the expected in- & output of some shortcode attributes. Additionally, Show Post Categories v2.2.3 will be bundled with some new features.
One of the best new functions is that you can provide an identifier of the post or page where you´ll want to grab data from. Normally such ID is just a number generated by WordPress itself. Obviously, for new WP users it could be hard to find such ID, and for many of us we could be a bit lazy from time to time. So we made it possible to enter the title as ID. Mind you; we said the title, not the slug. They are both two different things, for instance the title of this post: Show Post Categories v2.2.3 & its slug: show-post-categories-v2.2.3
Previously I told you guys that I was working on I18n. I´m not quite there yet. Because you can now list tags, I´ve added an additional option at the settings page too. This minor change allows you to write your own text that will be visible as URL text when hovering above the tag hyperlink.
Below the page you will find an overview of new attributes to get you started.
Hope you will enjoy it!
A small overview of new features;
- Show title from either the current post or page, or from another one defined by post or page ID
