  3. Hi there,

    great plugin (better than the other ones!), the first 5* at WP.org are from me 🙂

    One question, i want to use it in combination with the Hackadelic Sliding Notes plugin, where I have to enter the information between shortcodes. As it doesn’t work the normal way, is it possible to use a function to retrieve the information, and if so, what’s the syntax ?

    thanks for your help, and the plugin of course !

    • Thanks a lot for stars 😉

      You must use shortcodes=on parameter in Hackadelic Sliding Notes plugin shortcode for properly usage …
      As this:
      [slider title="slider button title" shortcodes=on][_mwpi_block slug ="wp-copyrighted-post" mode="download"]Cool plugin[/mwpi_block][/slider]

      • Wow, strange I didn’t notice this option, my fault, sorry !

        Your solution isn’t working completely, as Hackadelic Sliding Notes deosnt accept your block format, but this workaroundworks perfect :

        [slider title=”slider button title” shortcodes=on][_mwpi slug =”my-wordpress-plugin-info” data=”name” mode=”fmt”]. [_mwpi slug =”my-wordpress-plugin-info” data=”version” mode=”fmt”]; [_mwpi slug =”my-wordpress-plugin-info” data=”downloaded” mode=”fmt”]; Rating: [_mwpi slug =”my-wordpress-plugin-info” data=”rating_raw” mode=”fmt”][/slider]

        Also, a small little thing i miss is the availability of the *short* plugin description (the ones found here : http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ ), also the other similair WP plugin info plugins don’t have this feature 🙂

        anyway, thanks again for this great plugin !

  4. Hi,

    one question (again :)), is it possible to remove the URL formatting from f.e. the author, so only the Author’s name is displayed and not a link ? thx for your help !

  5. Hi there,
    I was looking for something else (a plugin to list on a page all my active/inactive plugins) when I came across your plugin. Something like “viper’s plugins used”. Unfortunately could not find a properly working one.
    Yours is GREAT and works like a charm with my 2.9.2 wordpress installation.
    So I was just wondering if you could add an option for this.
    I mean if only one could use a short code like:
    mwpi_block slug =”active_plugins” mode=”download”]Some text[/mwpi_block or
    mwpi_block slug ="inactive_plugins" mode="download"]Some text[/mwpi_block
    It would be brilliant.

    Thank you in advance,
