bBlog Search Plug-in...

Last night, I noticed that the Search plug in discussed on the bBlog forum's did not search the titles of entries. I have fixed it up, and you can snag my update here [zip], or see it in action here.

The bBlog nextprev 0.4 plugin...

In the bBlog Forum, there has been a thread on a Search Plugin, and Chris Boulton has just created one.

So, in addition to this blog now having the Search capability, my NextPrev plugin now supports it.

To add support for the Search plugin, I have added the ability to specify the query array to prevent NextPrev from querying the database. This allows you to create your own query. For this to work, the array has to be modified, and I have introduced a new parameter to do this. To avoid the form from posting data, I have also modified Chris's templates to use GET, and I am using the link parameter introduced in 0.3 to complete the recipe.

As always, if there are any issues with it, or you have another suggestion, please let me know :-).

The bBlog nextprev 0.3 plugin...

Here's another update to my nextprev plugin. The biggest feature is documentation. In the previous releases, I had forgotten to mention that you needed two patches for bBlog 0.7.3. These two patches are now included by default.

In addition to the documentation, I have also included the updated line template with the changes. This will hopefully help users who are installing this plugin slightly.

In the 0.2 release, I added the ability to enumerate the pages. For sites with many pages, I have added the ability to limit the number of displayed pages via a variable. The include line template shows a technique on how to show this, but it is all entirely up to you.

Lastly, I have added the ability to add some more parameters to the SQL query that is done for counting, and add more parameters to the generated links. This could be used to change the functionality of this plugin.

Again, for a working demo, simply look at the bottom of here.

If there are any issues with it, or you have another suggestion, please let me know :-).

The bBlog nextprev 0.2 plugin...

Someone at the bBlog Forum requested the ability to list pages, so I have added this capability to the nextprev 0.2 plugin. For a sample of what it does, see the bottom of this page.

If there are any issues with it, or you have another suggestion, please let me know :-).

Introducing the bBlog nextprev plugin 0.1...

I have created a new plug-in for bBlog (the software that this blog runs) that creates the Next/Previous buttons found at the bottom of this page. If you are running bBlog and would like to use it, you can download it here.

Of course, if you notice something funny with it, please let me know!
