Edit (4/25/2006): I am officially discontinuing support for this plugin. I have a comment near the botom explaining further.
This is my first public WordPress Plugin. It’s sort of an “inverse” of Owen Winkler’s Adhesive plugin. Whereas Adhesive makes posts “sticky,” Solvent makes them “slippery,” so that they won’t be displayed on the front page of your blog, no matter how recently they have been written. To install, just unzip the file into your
wp-content/plugins directory, and activate it from within your WordPress Admin control panel.
Solvent has only been tested with WordPress 1.5.1 (Strayhorn), so I have no idea if it works on earlier versions. I do know that it only works on versions where the
is_home() function is defined, so I don’t think it will work on any version prior to 1.5 (or the 1.3 betas).
As with Adhesive, this plugin depends on your
$posts array being somewhat pristine, so it probably won’t play nicely with any other plugin that modifies it. It has been tested and confirmed to work with Adhesive, however. The “Slippery” setting of Solvent always overrides the “Sticky” setting of Adhesive on the front page.
Right now, this is marked as a 0.5 version, since it has only been tested on one blog. Patches, enhancements and bug fixes are welcome – send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
