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.
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?
