As of version 1.1.2, multiple categories can be selected using the cat_id attribute. Simply provide a comma separated string of the category ID’s to include. Use a negative ID to omit multiple categories.
For example to include a yearly archive of posts with both the categories of ‘Archive-Pro-Matic’ (ID 55) and ‘collapse-pro-matic’ (ID 43) the shortcode would be:
Note: Currently the title of the archive page will display only the first category. A solution to display multiple titles is in the works. Multiple category titles will now display on the archive page.
Introducing a new attribute for Archive-Pro-Matic: highlight
Highlight accepts the following values:
Assigning ‘current-year’ as the value of the highlight attribute will add a current-year class to the current year in the archive list. Assigning ‘active-year’ would only be assigned to the archive list when placed on an archive page.
We have added a bit of css to highlight each of the classes:
border-left: 2px solid red;
border-left: 2px solid blue;
Assigning ‘current-year’ as the value of the highlight attribute will add a current-year class to the current year in the list: [archives type="yearly" cat_id="4" limit="5" highlight="current-year"/]
Assigning ‘active-year’ would only be used on the archive page itself. To see this in action, first visit the an archive page, say 2014 and on that page place an archive list using the sidebar widget or following shortcode.
