Ok I changed my editor to HTML and see a lot more options!

So I'm trying something like this:

<?php sp_hot_topics ?>

Comes up blank.

<?php sp_hot_topics(); ?>

Returns an error.

But even something that should work like:

<?php sf_recent_posts_alt_tag(5, false, true, true, 0, true, true, 50); ?>

Returns this error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function sf_recent_posts_alt_tag() in /problem-with-post-edit-buttonome/pilecrap/public_html/problem-with-post-edit-buttonauntedpaulding.com/wp-content/plugins/exec-php/includes/runtime.php(42) : eval()'d code on line 1

oh sorry... the code button - the fancy one anyway, is only available in tinymce, the rich text... html does have a button too just not as fancy output... wink

all three of those are wrong and from version 4...  they wont work in version 5... you have to use the template tags or shortcodes that are in the template tags plugin main file...

for hottest topics:

<?php sp_HotTopicsTag(); ?>

or the shortcode

[sp_HotTopicsTag]

if you were using template tags in v4, they all need to be changed to equivalent 5.0 tag...

THAT WORKED! And I assume I can input options the same as in the last example I posted?

Also Rich text - TinyMCE was selected by default for me and it didn't show any of the options.

I can tell I'm going to have to play with my theme code some. It creates a separate box from the widget I've made for it. So like

WIDGET TITLE
empty space
HOTTEST TOPICS

instead of
WIDGET TITLE
HOTTEST TOPICS.

Anyway, I'll figure that part out I'm sure. Thank you a lot!

no, options are entered differently...  there is a single argument to the template tags now

<?php sp_HotTopicsTag($args); ?>

the args are a classic php arg list...  so to change number of topics shown

<?php sp_HotTopicsTag('limit=10'); ?>

to go back 60 days,

<?php sp_HotTopicsTag('limit=10&days=60'); ?>

for example...  see the actual template tag file in the library of the plugin for the possible arguments...

Ok that makes more sense. Like your template tags page says, refer to the tags page for WP. So I don't know why I expected these to be different. Good stuff! Thanks again!
