Ultimate Category Excluder 0.96

I went back to version 0.84 and basically recreated that version as version 0.96. I do hope this fixes the bugs that are breaking people’s web sites. I have also applied to WordPress for a beta version of the plugin to be listed in the Plugin Directory. That way I can test new versions on […]

Announcing Home Page Text Reverser
