Include number of comments

This option only applies if Show link to comments is enabled. It adds the number of comments to the comment link.

This option only applies if Show link to comments is enabled. It allows you to include or hide the comment link for posts with no comments.

Turn category names into links

Enabling this option will turn category names into links to the categories.

Hide password-protected posts

This prevents password-protected posts from showing up.

If you are showing the date after posts, this will allow you to configure the date format (using the standard PHP date() format)

This allows you to show a preview of the content under each post in the list.

Number of characters to show

This lets you specify how many characters of the content will be shown, assuming you have the previous option enabled.

This allows you to set a limit on the number of categories that will be shown in the list. Set to 0 for no limit.

Excluded category IDs

This is a comma-separated list of category ID’s you want excluded from the list.

  4. About the options – I just tested mine again, and I can set them with no problems. You are changing it in the options page, and not in the plugin file itself right? The plugin file only contains the default values, which are used when it is first installed.

  6. A few comments / questions. Would it be possible to order the posts by date posted? Also it would be nice to be able to show a longer excerpts from the posts. That would make for a great intro / homepage in some cases.
