Please help support the continued development of AZIndex, particularly if you are using the plugin in your work or as part of a for-profit website. All contributions, no matter what size, will be gratefully received.

Polls Galore

I have just added a new Survey page to the site where, with a few clicks of the mouse button, you can give your feedback on how you are using AZIndex, and what you most like about it.  As a bonus, it also gives you the chance to vote for the feature you would most like to see in a future release of the plugin (no promises though!).

I have opened comments on the page, in case you feel the need to explain your votes (or perhaps suggest a modification to the polls themselves).

    Great plugin (by now you must know it!)
    My learning curve is not as steep, but will get there.
    Is it possible to include in the display of indexes the option of post thumbs?

    • Faidon. There is no setting on the settings page to display thumbnails, but if you install the new version out today (0.8.1) then there is a way to get thumbnails into your index, if you use the new azindex_display_item filter.

      You will need a little bit of code to do it, but there is a good example with source code, on this page, and the index it creates can be seen here.

      Hi there:

      Great plugin!
      I was wondering where you put the code to get the thumbs displayed. Where do you put this code?

      [add_filter(‘azindex_display_item’, ‘my_display_item_filter’);] and function?

      thanks in advance

    • Hi Lakay,

      There are two places where you can put the code:

      1) In your theme directory — usually added to your functions.php file that most themes contain, or

      2) In your own plugin file, which you then install just like any other plugin. I will be posting a full article on how to do this tomorrow (Sunday), for some code that allows you to add your own CSS styles to any theme without editing your editing theme files, but you can do the same thing with the code you want to add for the thumbnail index. It’s very easy and is, I believe, the best way to add code like this to your blog. So be sure to come back to the site in the next day or two — I even provide a little plugin file you will be able to download, and add your code to. 🙂

      Hi: thanks for the plugin template. It worked but I’m getting a dash “-” on top of the titles.

      I’m not sure why.

      Any help would be appreciated.


    • That’s cool you got it to work. You can easily get rid of the dash. Go into the settings page for the index and scroll down to the Heading seperator option. By default, it will be set to ” – ” which is the dash you are seeing in the index.

      Unfortunately, if you just delete it then the dash will reappear because at the moment, you have to put something in the text box otherwise it puts the ” – ” back as the default. So what you have to do is type a single space ” ” into the text box and the save the settings. That will get rid of the unwanted dash for you.

      (I do need a provide a way of removing the separator altogether, but I think this will work for you in the meantime).


  • Exactly what i was looking for, very easy to follow instructions and up and running within minutes. Your plugin features on the home page of my cheap destinations guide and at this early stage of the guide will be a starting point for everything we offer. Great plugin much Kudos.


  • This plug-in is totally brilliant!
    It is exactly what I was look for.
    I’m working on a website about hymns and need to list them alphabetically. The plug-in works perfectly!

  • Hi Christopher, glad you like the plugin! I did notice that your theme is putting list item bullets next to the items in the index. That’s okay, but if you’re up to a little CSS sleuthing you should be able to find out where they are coming from and get rid of them.

    There’s some more information about that in the FAQ.

  • Oh, I didn’t read your lovely tutorial before posting. Sorry! I’m getting the widget working perfectly. Thank you!

  • Tim

    Thanks for the plugin – a great asset!

  • Is there a way of constructing an index sorting by modification date of the post/page ?
    or at least listing the modification date.

    • wonderful put up, very informative. I’m wnredniog why the other experts of this sector do not notice this. You must continue your writing. I’m confident, you have a huge readers’ base already!

  • Finally someone who can write a good blog ! . This is the kind of information that is useful to those want to increase their SERP’s. I loved your post and will be telling others about it. Subscribing to your RSS feed now. Thanks

  • Hey Mike,
    Congrats for this wonderful plugin + your detailed explanations. Working on the development of the new version of my site. Have everything fully validated in XTHML 1.0 strict so far apart from 1 mistake generated by your plugin. I initially had 33 at the beginning most likely because 2 & amp; were missing on az-indexcontent.php.
    The message I’m gettin’ from the W3C validator is ‘document type doesn’t allow element “style” here, meaning that the CSS should be placed in the header before the head ending tag.
    So my question is: how removing everything related to the CSS from the aforementioned so that we could have it on like a separate stylesheet. Thank you in advance for your precious help.

  • Good day what do you think is the next world war close?

  • Would you mind enabling rss feeds, because this page is difficult to read on my phone. Don’t mean to be a complainer, but I figure if it would help me it would probably help others as well. Thanks 🙂
