This evening, I discovered a minor issue in version 0.3a of the List Attachments Shortcode plug-in. The problem was with the use of the orderby parameter.

While testing version 0.2a of this plug-in, I discovered a handful of issues that needed to be addressed. I fixed those issues and am now releasing the updated version. I’m sure there is still a multitude of issues with the plug-in, but I want to get it out publicly for wider testing.

This WordPress plug-in allows users to easily list all of the attachments associated with a specific post or page within WordPress. For instance, if you want to create a long list of Word documents or PDF documents, you can simply attach them to the page or post, then insert the shortcode where you’d like that list to appear.
