You may recall (but you probably don’t) that four years ago, I was looking for a WordPress plugin that would let me add a postscript to all of the posts in a given category. I wrote a simple proof-of-concept at that time, called it Formategory (“Format” by “category”), and left it to simmer in my subconscious.
Well, you can stop holding your breath, because even though I forgot about it for three years and eleven months, I’ve finished the first version and uploaded it for you to use! Here’s a screenshot of the template editing screen:
A full description and usage instructions are on the Formategory homepage, but if you’re one of those people who would rather trial-and-error your way through it than read the manual first, here’s how you can get started:
- Search for “Formategory” in the “Add new plugin” screen on your WordPress dashboard and install it from there.
- Download the .zip file from Extend.
- Choose “Add New” from the “Plugins” menu in your WordPress dashboard
- Upload the .zip file.
Activate it, click the new “Category Templates” link in your dashboard’s menu, and create your first template.
formategory.po is included in the

es-ES translation. To ensure that Formategory is displayed in your language, follow the instructions at WordPress in Your Language.
By the way, this post about Formategory is using Formategory to auto-add the download link for Formategory to the end of this post. Formetagory, am I right?
