No Sub Category Posts in Loop

By michael  |  January 29th, 2009  |  Published in WordPress Plugins  |  23 Comments

This WordPress plugin will remove posts from your loop that belong to sub categories.

By default, if you are looking at “Category A” archive, you’ll see all posts from “Category A” as well as all posts from any sub-categories of “Category A”. Once activated, this plugin will only display posts from the current category.

There are currently no options. If you think of any and that could be used by many, I’ll add them to it. For now, just install and activate.

Signature Manager Plugin for WordPress

By michael  |  August 29th, 2008  |  Published in WordPress Plugins  |  79 Comments


This simple little plugin gives each author on your blog the ability to setup a signature and to include it at the bottom of their posts.

The admin screen gives each author the ability to format their signature (a text area with HTML formatting enabled) and to indicate whether or not they want the signature on or off by default.

Regardless of the default setting, your authors may toggle the inclusion of the signature to ‘on’ or ‘off’ for each individual post at the bottom of the Write Post and Edit Post screens.

WPMU Meta Tags

By michael  |  July 27th, 2008  |  Published in WordPress Plugins  |  7 Comments


Developed for WordPress MU, this plugin gives you the ability to set custom ‘description’ and ‘keywords’ meta tags in the ‘head’ area of your site. The plugin is helpful because it gives the site admin the ability to set keywords and description for every pageĀ  on every blog (site wide) and then it allows each individual blog admin to set their own description and keywords. The plugin then combines them into one before inserting the result into the head of your website.

To adjust the site wide keywords and description, sign in as a site administrator and go to the settings tab in the admin area. To adjust the keywords and description for a single blog, log in as a single blog admin (without site admin privileges) and navigate to the settings tab in the backend.
