You can use nm_custom_display_recent, e.g. like this:

Code:
<ul>
<?php
nm_custom_display_recent('
  <li><strong><a href="{{post_link}}">{{post_title}}</a></strong><br />
      {{post_excerpt}}
      <a href="{{post_link}}">Read more</a>
  </li>
',
'tagishere');
?>
</ul>



Just a note: I've uploaded this plugin to Extend.

Hey Carlos! Hell, GS is changing a lot!
I tested your lastest version 0.9.0.3 and it works great.

Tip: if you can't add my "pull-down menu style WP" to NMUpdated plugin, you could add it to NMAddons. it could fit well.

Hi Carlos!
After various "tests" with "NM Addons", I may to suggest you to eliminate the tags <p> and </p> before and after the tag {{post_excerpt}}. I think that It's better to have a clean text to use it directly in a tag <div> or <span>, specially during the adaptation of a free html template. What do you think about it?

News Manager Addons version 0.9.2
  • Post excerpts ({{post_excerpt}} placeholder) are no longer enclosed between <p> and </p> tags. (@D.O.)
Please note that, if you're upgrading from previous versions of the plugin, you may have to edit your template or component (if your styles are affected, you just have to change {{post_excerpt}} to <p>{{post_excerpt}}</p>)

I'm trying to get a list of recent postimages in the sidebar with the title of the post as alt-tag

I've tried with the
PHP Code:
<a href="{{post_link}}">{{ post_image }} alt="{{post_title}}"</a

which off course don't work because of the <a href> tag.

but simple replacing this tag with the <img> tag also doesn't work
PHP Code:
<img src="{{post_link}}">{{ post_image }} alt="{{post_title}}"</img>] 


Is this possible ?
Anyone successful on this road ?




I think i'm getting there myself...

PHP Code:
<?php nm_custom_display_recent('    
<a href="{{ post_image_url }}" alt="{{ post_title }}">
'
); ?>

To get the image URL only, use the {{ post_image_url }} placeholder. Example:

Code:
<a href="{{ post_link }}"><img src="{{ post_image_url }}" alt="{{ post_title }}" /></a>

Hi,

any idea how can I implement random posts based on tags ? I'm trying to create a list of 5 random posts, where tags are sorted from 2 occurencies to more (2 because 1st is shown post, 2nd is related post based on tag..). I'm not very successful Big Grin I don't have effective way of counting tags and assigning posts to them :/

so if 5 posts have 1-2 common tags, they would be skipped and only posts with more unique tags will be displayed, if no other posts, then show at least those posts with common tags..

News Manager's functions nm_get_posts() and nm_get_tags() return an array of posts (with all fields but content) and an array of tags (associated to post ids having the tag), respectively. These functions may be useful to do what you need.

thanks for pointing me to right direction, if anybody needs similar posts by tag, here's my code

Code:
$num_post = 5;
$slugs = array();
$url = nm_get_url('post');
$posts = nm_get_tags();
foreach($posts as $tag => $post) {
    if(nm_post_has_tag($tag)) {
        foreach ($post as $slug) {
            $slugs[] = (string)$slug;
        }
    }
}
$slugs = array_unique($slugs);
if(($key = array_search(nm_post_slug(false), $slugs)) !== false) {
    unset($slugs[$key]);
}
shuffle($slugs);
$slugs = array_slice($slugs, 0, $num_post);
$all = nm_get_posts();

echo '<ul class="nm_similar_post">';
foreach ($all as $post) {
    if(in_array($post->slug, $slugs)) {
        echo '<li><a href="'.$url.$post->slug.'" title="'.$post->title.'">'.$post->title.'</a></li>', PHP_EOL;
    }
}
echo '</ul>';

The custom display thing is fantastic. It means I can do almost anything with recent posts on a homepage. I have found one very small error in the documentation:

  • {{ post_number }} - number of post as displayed (1 = first)
Should read 

  • {{ post_number }} - number of post as displayed (0 = first)
When I have finished what I am working on I will be able to upload it as a theme. 


Thank you Carlos for this fine plugin.
