Associated Posts Lite Plugin

Font size:
  • Sharebar

The award-winning Associated Posts Lite (formerly Post Page Associator) Plugin enables you to display posts on a page…

Download

Version – 0.9.7

Description :

This plugin enables you to associate posts and pages with each other and to display posts on any pages. You can easily select posts in the “Edit Page” Mode and attach them to this page. This Plugin is the subsequent version of “Post Page Associator”.

Btw: Associated Posts is available as Premium Plugin too.

Handling

The handling is very easy. When you are going to edit a page you will see a box with the title “Associated Posts”. There you can choose posts which should attached to this page. In this version you cannot set the number of posts which should be shown on the page or other settings like the post order. These options are available in the Pro Version.

Settings

You can change the association settings in WP Admin Panel » Settings » Associated Posts.

Shortcode

In case you won’t have the associated posts at the end of your page you can use the [associated_posts] shortcode anywhere in your pages content. So the posts will be shown at the place you inserted the shortcode. (The shortcode has no parameters.)

Customization

If you need a customized template of the associated posts. E.g. as list or with author, date, time or meta data feel free to send me an e-mail. For a small fee I will write a customized template for you. Don’t be shy. ;)

How to write an own customization

A template is a php file which renders the output of the associated posts (a WP Query). You can find example template files in the plugin folder (templates/). You can store these templates in:

  • plugin templates folder (or a sub folder) (inadvisable)
  • your theme folder (or a sub folder)

The default header of a template looks like that:

/* AP Template: Example Template Description: This is the description. Version: 1.0 Author: Your name Author URI: http://example.com Author E-Mail: yourname@example.com */

The only required information in the header is the “AP Template” line. So the Plugin knows this is an AP Template.

For Theme Designers

Feel free to create a template and add it to your theme. The plugin will find it automaticaly. You can find a working example file of a template in the plugin directory (templates/title-excerpt-thumbnail.php). Just copy it in your template directory and modify it until it fits your themes design.

If you want to disable the auto append feature of the plugin you can use the ‘associated_posts_auto_append‘ filter. Just add this line of code to your functions.php:

Add_Filter ('associated_posts_auto_append', Create_Function('',' return False; ') );

For real developers ;)

As a real developer you can easily access to the associated posts via functions:

Global $wp_plugin_associated_posts; $wp_plugin_associated_posts->Get_Associated_Posts ($page_id = Null){ /* $page_id: the id of the page which associated posts you want to read. if $page_id = Null, the plugin will read from current page. returns: By default the function returns a WP_Query Object. The object is very well documented in the Codex. If there are no posts this function returns false. */ }

Real developers love the clout of their code. And as a real WordPress developer you know about the magic of hooks and filters. The Associated Posts Plugin uses a filter with the name ‘associated_posts_template‘. You can use this filter to set the template file of the associated posts. (You can overwrite the users template option with this filter.) You can find an example file of this template in the plugin directory (templates/title-excerpt-thumbnail.php).

Questions

I know you have many questions – my mailbox is the proof. ;) But unfortunately I cannot give support for free plugins. There is a separate support package available for the Pro Version of this plugin. Please use it. Of course you can hire me for consulting, support, programming and customizations at any time.
