Re: glx_recent_articles

<del>Can you simply choose to only draw results from Category 1 or Category 2 instead of naming a specific category?</del>

Er, sorry, I was thinking about related articles.

Re: glx_recent_articles

When i just loooked at the code for this plugin i saw it was a little messed up, i wrote it before i understand how txp really worked, but i can have a look at it and see if i can work something out in 1 or 2 days.

Re: glx_recent_articles

hi osei.. if you’ll be working on it anyway (no rush!) and it’s not too difficult to do, perhaps you could add an “if NOT category” clause to it… i would love to be able to output a list that prints all the categories except for two or three….

thanks much, either way :)

Re: glx_recent_articles

hmm maybe the ideal will be <code>category=“category1, category2, !category3”</code>

where ! stands for not

I dont know yet if its possible but maybe :)

Re: glx_recent_articles

Yes, very much appreciated. I would lend a hand, but alas I am relatively new to php and textpattern code in general.

Thanks!
