v0.3 Beta Is Now Live!

Yes, LastHalo is barely 2 weeks old. To be exact, it had only been out for 12 days. But doesn't it feel like it has gone a long way?

And yes, v0.3 of LastHalo is not a bug-fix only release. A few new features are added.
  1. You can now specify the number of entries to be displayed. Simply use the 'n' parameter to specify the number of posts, from 1 to 10. The default 'n' value is 10.

    For example, to display 5 posts, you would use the following lines of code:
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript"

  2. You can now kiss the standardized prefix 'From' goodbye. By using the parameter 'pre', you can now set LastHalo to display each entry with any prefix you like. As you may have noticed, the default value is now "By".

    As an example, to set prefix as "Kiss from", use the following codes:
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript"

    Note that you should separate each words with a '+' and not a space.

    To remove prefix, you should set prefix to null.
    ie. pre=null

  3. To complete the release, postfix customization is also possible. Simply use the 'post' parameter. The default value is an empty string, or null.

    An example to set postfix as "said", you would use the following codes:
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript"

You can use as many '&' as needed to combine a few parameters.

Thanks for supporting LastHalo!
