Sub Categories Widget 1.4 Released

This release implements a enhancement request to have the post define the parent category for the sub-category list.  The first category of the post (the first post is used if more than one are displayed, for example on an archive page) as a parent category.  If this category has no sub-categories then the widget is not displayed at all.

You’ll also notice that the exclude categories option is now a multi-selection list (use ctrl click to select more than  one category).

The release also improved sanitation and validation of widget input.

 

Sub Categories Widget 1.2 Released

A new version of the ever popular sub-categories widget has been released which has two enhancements.  The first is that you can now exclude specific categories by entering a comma-delimited list of category IDs and these categories (and any sub categories that they have) will not appear in the widget listing.

The second enhancement is the ability to show the full sub-category tree; all sub-category levels will then be included in the widget list rather than just the first level of subcategories.

Random One Cat Widget 2.3 Released

This release adds an enhancement request to allow the shortening of posts to the More… marker if it is used (if it isn’t used for a post the entire post content is displayed as before).  This gives much more flexibility about the type of post that you are able to display in the widget.  To use this simply check the new option box on the widget.  If you aren’t displaying post content, but only title, there will be no change to the display.
