I have released version 2 of my category and archive drop-down plug-in for WordPress. It is hosted at the WordPress Plug-In Directory - you can go get it there. Following are a few of the changes that were made.
- Both tags now have only 2 parameters - the type of navigation and the text for the link or button. For navigation type, ‘button’ remains the default, and ‘link’ is still available. However, a third option of ‘auto’ has been added, which will render the list as an auto-navigating select box.
- The CSS parameters for the select and button elements were dropped. How these elements can be specified using CSS is detail in the top-of-plugin comments, along with an example.
- The usage examples in the comments now have an example of how to put the tag in a template in such a way that, if the plug-in is disabled, the template will still render. This could be done with 1.0, but I didn’t give an example.
- I added PHP Documentor-style comments to both functions.
Let me know if you have any problems with it, or any ideas for other behavior. Enjoy!
(UPDATE: This plug-in is inactive, as its functionality is now part of WordPress core.)
