WP Show Posts 1.2.0

This is an alpha version. Please test it, but only on test and staging sites – not sites with a lot of live traffic.

Learn how to install beta versions here.

This our first feature release in quite a while. This version adds some new features and fixes some existing bugs.

This is likely the last feature release until we release our WPSP block, which we’re very excited for.

Image Sizes

Image resizing in WordPress is hard. WPSP has always used Aqua Resizer for on-the-fly image resizing. However, we’ve grown to dislike this method due to various incompatibilities and performance issues.

In 1.2.0, we simply allow you to choose from the existing sizes generated by WordPress. Of course, you can add your own sizes using the add_image_size() function.

If you’re already using the legacy image resizer, it will continue to work as it is now.

Better Code

We went through the code to make sure the plugin is as extendable as possible. This meant passing the individual list settings to every single hook and filter, which allows for better extendability when you need to go beyond the options.

We also cleaned up a lot of the overall code to be better escaped for easier readability.
