Annual Archive v1.5.1 & Archive-Pro-Matic v1.1.1

Aside

New WordPress Archive Features

The latest versions of Annual Archive and Archive-Pro-Matic have just been released and both include the following features:

Archive Type: Decade

A new decade archive type has been introduced that is useful when the archive covers a large number of years. Posts are grouped into decades, or a time span of 10 years: 1970’s, 1980’s, 1990’s and so on.

Alpha Type Sorting

According to the WordPress codex for the wp_get_archives function the type attribute will override the order attribute for alpha and postbypost archive types:

Type of archive to retrieve. Accepts ‘daily’, ‘weekly’, ‘monthly’, ‘yearly’, ‘postbypost’, or ‘alpha’. Both ‘postbypost’ and ‘alpha’ display the same archive link list as well as post titles instead of displaying dates. The difference between the two is that ‘alpha’ will order by post title and ‘postbypost’ will order by post date. Default ‘monthly’.

WordPress Codex

The latest versions of both Annual Archive and Archive-Pro-Matic include a new alpha_sort feature that allows alpha archive types to be sorted either ASCending or DESCending. The shortcode attribute to control alpha type sorting is alpha_sort.

Post-By-Post Type Sorting

The latest versions of both archive plugins include a new alpha_sort feature that allows post-by-post archive types to be sorted either ASCending or DESCending. The shortcode attribute to control post-by-post type sorting is post_sort.

Collapse-O-Matic v1.7.7

Aside

Collapse-O-Matic version 1.7.7 has just been released. This update includes a new content filter feature. To demonstrate what exactly this does, below are two examples of the html from a simple collapse element. By default the content filter is turned off, but this can be set in the plugin options page under Dashboard > Settings > Collapse-O-Matic > Filter Content.

Without Filter

[expand title="Trigger"]This is a bit of content text[/expand]

<div id="target-id1820" class="collapseomatic_content">This is some special text to display about item one</div>

Trigger

This is a bit of content text

With Filter

[expand title="Trigger" filter="true"]
This is a bit of content text
[/expand]

<div id="target-id1820" class="collapseomatic_content"><p>This is some special text to display about item one</p>
</div>

Trigger

New Plugin: T(-) Countdown Events

plugin_banner_t_minus_events
The Plugin Oven is happy to announce the release of T(-) Countdown Events our first add-on plugin for both T(-) Countdown and T(-) Countdown Control. This add-on allows a list of timed events to be triggered at specific times before the countdown reaches zero.

Multiple events can be created and then associated to one or more countdowns. Each event is assigned a specific amount of time (days, hours, minutes and seconds) before the countdown launches where it can:

  • Insert HTML above or below the countdown
  • Insert HTML in a specific element based on element type, element ID or element class
  • trigger an external callback function

This add-on plugin is quite powerful in it’s current state, and more features will be added over the next months. While we continute to develope T(-) Countdown Events, we are making it available to early-adopters at a discounted rate.

Collapse-Pro-Matic v1.2.1

Aside

Collapse-Pro-Matic version 1.2.1 is now available for purchase and upgrade. This update includes a new plugin registration and update method that is fully integrated with the new plugin licensing system. Collapse-Pro-Matic must now be registered using a licence key to continue to receive plugin updates. Licence keys may be viewed and completely managed from your account. A brief overview the of changes to the registration system are presented in the following video:

Plugin Licensing Changes for 2015

On January 1st, 2015, the Plugin Oven will introduce new pricing and licensing models for all our premium plugins. The following is an overview upcoming changes to licensing, updates and support.

Licensing

Purchased plugins will include a license that will be valid for one year from the date of purchase. While the plugin will continue to work after the license expires, support and plugin updates will only be offered to plugins with a valid license. Renewal licenses that extend support and updates for one year will be offered at a discounted rate. An unlimited license may also be purchased that will extend updates and support for the lifetime of the plugin.
To the disco!

New Plugin: Collapse Commander

Aside

collapse_commander_stampTwinpictures is happy to announce it’s latest addition to the Plugin Oven: Collapse Commander. Collapse Commander is an add-on plugin that extends both the Collapse-O-Matic and Collapse-Pro-Matic plugins to include a powerful expand Element Manager.

If you are using a large number of expand elements, Collapse Commander allows you to manage them all in a single location. Another reason to consider Collapse Commander is that it reduces the expand shortcode clutter by only requiring the cid attribute.

Without Collapse Commander

[expand title="trigger text" id="this_element_id" trigclass="trigger_class" rel="this_group-highlander"]target content[/expand]

With Collapse Commander

[expand cid="512"/]

Special thanks to Vince Stross at http://www.tenthacrefarm.com/ for planting the seed that sprouted into this plugin.
