Things Itemised Plugin

WordPress Development

I have added a new plugin for beta testing – things itemised.

Things itemised is used for making lists. Each list is created so that all members of the blog can add items to it but the display code is set up so that each user’s list is a separate thing.

The shortcode works like this:

[itlist userid=1 list=’my list’]

At this stage, you will need to present your own user-id number as part of the code.

Future plans include auto-detection of users (by post authorship or user page) as well as dedicated list building controls and list display pages.

Right now, we have a custom content type that works. It can be used to make four different types of lists.

Theme authors can supply custom display templates which the plugin will respect. On my personal blog, you will shortly see custom template files in action. I added the ended date to the thing list type so I could track things I completed in December 2020.

The plugin will be shared on GitHub at some point in the near future.

Who is with me? …
