Wordpress Faceted Search Roadmap

The following is a preliminary roadmap for the Faceted Search Wordpress Plugin:

 

Version 2.0 - Released 10/24/2010

  • Re-design the taxonomy tree sorting and processing algorithm
  • Allow ordering of the category display
  • Use Javascript to make the category tree collapseable

 

Version 2.1

  • A bugfix to make the tags work again after the 2.0 changes
  • An html bugfix for the categories

 

Version 2.2

  • A bugfix to make categories work that have been added or deleted after the plugin has activated.

 

Version 2.1

  • A bugfix to handle multisite database table prefixes

 

Version 3.0 - Released 5/2/2011

 

Version 3.2

  • Added the ability to exclude categories and tags from displaying in the widgets.

 

Version 3.3

  • Added the ability to display but disable (exclude the checkbox for) categories and tags in the widget

 

 

Possible Future Features:

  • A separate search page for faceted search instead of a widget- after researching the problem, this will require extensive changes, and may not appear anytime soon.
  • Handling of taxonomies other than categories and tags.
