I have a very rudimentary plugin designed to provide 'page X of Y' feedback
features to wordpress - however, when I wrote it I was new to writing WP
plugins, so it's a template tag you'll need to insert manually into your
* Identify which page a post is on, based on the number of posts per page
* @param string $postid Required. The ID of the current post
* @param string $category Category list, either a single ID or multiple,
separated by commas
* @return int The page the post occurs on.
function get_current_page($postid=0, $category = '')
If you're interested in giving it a whirl (and helping me be sure it works
for other people before releasing it) drop me a line and I'll send it over
It is a computationally heavy calculation, but this plugin implements
cacheing which should ease the burden.
While I'm here - does anyone have any good advice on how to implement
query-parameter style parsing for functions? Is this still the official way
to implement them, rather than multiple parameters?
