Grid Archives 1.7.0

As indicated in the comment here (thanks to Paul for the detailed information), there is a cache issue in Grid Archives 1.6.0 and above.

Version 1.7.0 addresses this issue so now you can have multiple instances/pages of grid archives running and showing different categories at the same time.

No screenshots available in this update since it’s just a cache fix, but I may add an option to enable/disable cache in the future release of Grid Archives. We will definitely have screenshots at that time for sure So, stay tuned~


  • fixed the cache issue
  • make the plugin compatible with wordpress 3.6

Grid Archives 1.6.0

As requested, this major release mainly address one issue/feature that grid archives should actually support in the very beginning, the sort direction option.

Before 1.6.0, all the posts are sorted in descending order by default and there seems to be no easy way to change this… but that pain will be history now, starting from now

To be compatible with previous versions, the default sort direction will remain as ‘desc’, so if you still want the month/post to be displayed in the descending order, as you wish.. you’re required to do nothing~ yay!


  • added an option to change the post sort direction (asec or desc)
  • make the plugin compatible with wordpress 3.4

As always, please visit the plugin home page for more details and click here to check out the live demo.

Grid Archives 1.5.1

After such a long time, Grid Archives seems definitely need some love. Sorry my old friend, I was really..really busy.

I mentioned I haven’t updated wordpress and plugins for quite a while before, now it’s not a problem anymore, cause I’ve bravely clicked that “Update Now” button i.

It’s glad to see Grid Archives still works properly. So with some small minor style changes, Grid Archives 1.5.1 is released.

I’m aware of that there’re still some issues to address. I will do address them… when I have some time.


  • minor css style changes
  • make the plugin compatible with wordpress 3.3

No big changes, but you can still verify it by navigating to the live demo page if you want.

Grid Archives 1.5.0

Grid Archives 1.4.0 introduced a new display style called “compact”, which only supports year expand at that time.

Although this function will effectively reduce the length of the whole archive page if there are many years of articles, it still presents as a very long list page if there are many articles/posts in each year. To address this issue, 1.5.0 introduce a new month list view in “compact” mode.

It will be shown by default if “compact” mode is enabled, but you can always turn it off if you like. The month date format is also highly customizable.


  • added month list view in ‘compact’ mode, the page will smoothly scroll to that month if clicked
  • added an option to hide the month list, thus disable the scroll capability
  • added an option to customize the date display format for month list

See Archives of The Year for a live demo.

Grid Archives 1.4.1

This release mainly addresses some minor defects/issues in release 1.4.0, if you’ve already upgraded to 1.4.0, upgrade to 1.4.1 is highly recommended.


  • tweaked the year list display style
  • fixed an issue that the screen will scroll up to the top during year expand
  • only load ‘compact’ style required js in ‘compact’ mode, not ‘classic’ mode

Please visit this archives page (“compact” style) to see a live demo.

As always, please visit the plugin home page for more details.

Grid Archives 1.4.0

CDD i continues

Driven by this comment, grid archives now supports a new compact (expand) post display style (view live demo). As also indicated by the demo, currently only year expand is supported. I will add month expand capability later if it’s largely demanded.


  • added an compact (expand) display style
  • added 3 shortcode attributes (style, month_date_format, post_date_format), grid-archives now supports [ grid_archives style=”classic|compact” month_date_format=”Y.m” post_date_format=”j M Y” ]

OpenExplorer Eclipse Plugin 1.5.0

Thanks to jdkcn, Open Explorer now supports multiple file managers (not only nautilus) in Linux, it will detect your system file manager and use that by default i. I also added a preferences page for this, so you can customize it if the default doesn’t make you happy.

To upgrade, simply replace the plugin jar file, you can always download the latest versionii from here.

  1. dolphin (KDE), nautilus (Gnome), thunar (xfce), pcmanfm (lxde), rox, xdg-open, etc []

So, what’s new?

anything else? Yeah!

OpenExplorer Eclipse Plugin 1.3.0

Essentially, this is just a bug-fixing and maintaining release. In this release, we addressed an issue on linux platform (with nautilus installed, currently seems all bugs are reported from ubuntu), similar to this one.

I’ve thoroughly tested it in Eclipse Galileo (3.5), Helios (3.6), Indigo (3.7) on Mac OS X 10.6.8, Linux (Ubuntu 11.04) and Windows XP. While I try my best to maintain the plugin compatibility with the latest Eclipse version and latest OS release, it does may have some backward compatible issue. If you encounter any problems, please consider upgrading your eclipse and OS to the latest version and try again. If this doesn’t solve the problem, please do not hesitate to report defects here or simply leave comments below.

This project is hosting on github and the latest release can be downloaded here:

To upgrade the plugin, just replace the jar package in your $ECLIPSE_HOME/plugins or $ECLIPSE_HOME/dropins directory.

Last but not least, thanks for all the support and feedback so far. I hope you enjoy it.
