Hi kongondo, I've been trying to make this plugin work for two straight days and I'm not having much luck.
I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to PHP but I'm usually able to stumble my way through. Can you provide an updated Gist? I'm thinking maybe this one is just too old and won't work with the latest version of your plugin. It seems like copying the renderPosts function to my _func.php file (instead of editing MarkupBlog.module) is the best way to do it so that my changes aren't overwritten when the plugin is updated. I've read this forum over and over, I hate to bother you but the documentation doesn't seem to be complete yet.
[UPDATE: I finally got the featured images to work - didn't realize I had to add the "featured" tag to the image - otherwise, I get an error].
Any chance you can provide a working Gist for each of the other properties? IE: categories, authors, archives, comments, tags, next/prev post, etc. - I would like to modify them to match my theme in the same way I did with renderPosts.
