Hi Ive scoured the web for a plug-in but seem unable to find one suiting my needs. What i need is the following (ill try to be as specific as possible);

Concept: I would like a single page on my site that lists updates to pages & posts as well as new pages. I have not found a good working example of providing users with this kind of info on a wordpress site. Recent posts, comments or pages are not the same thing.

Below are two examples of such pages, both very basic and both non-wordpress:

http://www.futaba-rc.com/new.html http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/updates.htm I did find a plug-in here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/recent-changes/ This however is an extremely basic idea of what i want. This plug in simply lists each page as a link and nothing more, i would like more features to be able to incorporate it into my theme. I have skinned my themes (webtreats dejavu theme) search results page to look like this; http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/2066/screenshot030cr.jpg

and i would like the updates page to look identical with 2 additions 1. Icons. I would like to include a small icon on the page. One icon for new pages and one for updates/changes to existing pages or posts. 2. date of change or addition of new page/post along with some text saying either “New Addition!” or “Updated!” or something along those lines.

I should be able to change the colours fonts etc via css

This is an idea how the final page should look with the 2 extra additions http://img140.imageshack.us/img140/8415/additions.jpg

Does anyone know if this would be possible? It seems straight forward to me but im not a coder. Also what would be the price of hiring a coder to create this?

thanks

Whats this all about?

I asked a perfectly legitimate question in the comments of an item i purchased and it sat there for around 2 days when all of a sudden it was marked as possibly inappropriate. It stayeed like that for a day then this morning i came and saw it had been deleted.

I’l like to know why this happend (its not the first time its happened to me either), i saw a question that was asked after mine was also marked and later deleted.

Hi Wasnt sure where to ask this but im trying to find if the following is available anywhere.

A video plug in for wordpress that will allow me to link locally hosted videos on facebook in the same way you can link youtube videos, specifically an inline player. Ive been playing with a few video plug ins but most dont seem to work very well and often the link that appears in the facebook wall shows loads of html code along with the thumbnail.

Something I think everyone who is complaining has missed…

It doesn’t matter if the authors here like or dislike the themes, think they are boring or dated or whatever, what matters is what buyers think.

Let the market decide.

buyers also think the same

As the starter of this thread. I would like to point out the fact that I’m not a developer on Themeforest so the sales side doesn’t affect me. As you will notice from my profile badges I come here purely to purchase top quality items mainly Wordpress Themes and I just find it disappointing that the main Wordpress area is being overrun by sub standard child themes and pushing the other great work from all of the independent developers.

This is my biggest issue as a buyer too.

I’m quite happy to ignore the themes as they are not of interest to me, but the current landing page for wp themes is overrun by these child themes.

Maybe envato should limit the amount of child themes that can be submitted to 1 a month, or at the least make some kind of stand-out icon so that we can immediately see its a child theme and requires other purchases before you can use it.

Personally I would like them removed from that main page totally and shown only on the “framework” section because its confusing for a lot of people.

prestige 2 isn’t a new theme, its just like vol 1 only with some new skins, and this is not allowed.

The rules are that a new submitted theme must be different.

I am gladd its offline otherwise there will be a lot more updates.(vol 1, vol 2, vol 3 etc)

yes i know that, I’m saying that these genesis child themes are working in a similar way (a minor skin change) but are allowed.

If the author were to include the framework with the child theme then it really would be no different than what was happening with prestige. but the fact that he gets to charge an extra $60 for that parent theme is just an added kick in the nuts.

Thats how i see it as a customer who buys from this site, not as a developer or seller.

i was actually wondering why Prestige 2 was removed and these genesis “child” themes are allowed.

When you look at it Prestige 2 was the same base theme as prestige 1 but included loads of new skins. Both sold for approx $35

These genesis child themes cost upto $45 AND require a further $60 purchase – $100 for 1 theme thats average looking at best? you must be crazy.

for $45 they should include the parent theme
