1.3.1 is out with Google XML Sitemap support

Add comments

This version of ACE has basically two new features:

  • I’ve added a help text under each setting to provide more help to our users, understand what does that particluar option mean
  • Integration with Google XML SItemap plugin. This means, your can manipulate not only your RSS feeds, but your sitemap as well, if you want to. I say that, because it is totally optional.

In the next release I’ll come up with more integration and import functions.
So stay tuned.

    Thanks for the great plugin and the frequent updates. I’ve been using ACE to enable CMS functionality on my site and it works like a charm.

    I noticed the aces at the top of the page – are you into magic too?!

    Hi Dan,

    I’m a kind of a magican on a different way as you are, I’m a WordPress one 😉

  3. Dan Gifford Magician Says:

    There’s one minor change that I think would improve the admin side and that’s a select all/ deselect all button on the categories management page.

    No problem for a plugin magician! 🙂

  4. DjZoNe Says:

    I’ll include it in my magic TODO list 🙂

  5. Luis Says:

    I just want to thank you for your continuing development of this plugin.

    Keep up the great work!

    Your plugin sounds great. However I haven’t understood if it can suit my needs: I would like to display selected posts on my homepage regardless of the publish date. I would preferably like to be able to select the items one by one instead of creating a kind of “homepage” category that would be used for “technical” reasons only because I would like to avoid that such a category is displayed in the category list and under each corresponding post. Do you see what I mean?

  7. DjZoNe Says:

    Pascal, you can’t select the post with ACE on a one by one basis. So, there’s only a category based exclusion. And there will be a TAG based, whan I have time to code it…

  8. Pascal Says:

    A tag based approach would be really helpful. Hope you will find time soon 😉

    WordPress is telling me that there is a new version out. ( http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/advanced-category-excluder/

    Could you please make a new post discussing the changes?

  10. Will Says:

    hello, nice plugin. Question, how do we update the text (Select Category) of the category widget when it is in dropdown mode.
    I can’t seem to find where this information can be edited to say something else. Thanks

    Love your tool but have to submit a bug report:

    Use case:
    – Start: For a given month (e.g. January 2009) only have posts in category “x”
    – Action taken: Exclude category “x” from the Archives using ACE.
    – Test: View the archives page for the given month
    – Result:
    – The archives page will list an entry for the given month. (This is an error)
    – Attempting to view the posts of that month will result in a 404 error. (This is expected)

    Additional info:
    – ACE version: 1.3.2
    – WP version: 2.7.1
    – No other plugins are active, themes have no incidence.

    Thanks for looking into this.

    Thank you very much.

  13. Thomas Says:

    Hi again,

    I should probably restate my earlier comment.
    The test should read: “view the archives page which lists all months.”
    The result should read: “the month with the test posts (e.g. January 2009) should not be listed”

    This also applies to other tools such as the calendars etc…

  14. DjZoNe Says:

    I’m really busy these days, but in 1 or 2 weeks I’ll have time for a next release.

  15. Chris Carvache Says:

    @ Thomas – yes, I’ve been experiencing this bug as well – more than likely a simple logic error

  16. Robert Says:


    i had also this problems –
    did a try to solve it: it ‘helps’ to add more exclusion targets


    $ace_targets = array(‘is_archive’=>__(‘Archive’,’ace’),’is_home’=>__(‘Home’,’ace’),’is_feed’=>__(‘RSS Posts’,’ace’),’is_comment_feed’=>__(‘RSS Comments’,’ace’),’is_search’=>__(‘Search’,’ace’), ‘is_page’=>__(‘Pages’, ace), ‘is_single’=>__(‘Single Posts’, ace),’norobots’=>__(‘Disable robots’,’ace’));

    @DjZoNe : I would like to contribute this

    The plugin seems to work pretty well on plain vanilla installations but I found something that MIGHT be a bug related to custom querys… I say might because maybe that’s how you expected it to work.

    Some details:
    – WP 2.7.1
    – ACE 1.3.2
    – PHP & MYSQL (tried in two different installations)


    If I select a category to be excluded from the HOME, it works just as “advertised”. The problem actually appears on the sidebar on a custom query.

    ACE is also affecting other querys in the same page, not only the main QUERY.

    I have a very simple “alternate” loop:

    $my_query = new WP_Query(‘caller_get_posts=1&cat=1&showposts=10’);

    Should it modify that query also?
