RSS Just Better Plugin version 0.8 released

This version includes a few new features:

  • Being able to truncate/limit the title to (given) chars
  • Being able to choose the date and the time format
  • Being able to sort the feed items by title (instead of the default date/time)
Some changes and bug fixes:
  • “Link to author” in widget form becomes “Link to the Plugin Homepage”
  • The popup window showing on mouseover title is limited to 400 char
  • Optimized function to retrieve feed and format list
  • Changed error message when feed URL does not return the items list:  if it has already worked before, it must be just a feed temporary issue and not a misformatted feed
  • Fixed the plugin homepage URI in the readme.txt file
Pages on how to use it and better demo have also been added to this blog.

Now,  for the users who wait for the ability to read and display images within the feed, please be patient it’ s a major change and I’m still working/thinking about it.

Any comment or remark please drop me a live via the contact form.


Wonder if these nerdy posts are related to my job, well, the answer is no. As a good friend once told me, "one never heals from programming!". It must be true in my case....
