Hi Alex -

No sorries, please.  I think it's outstanding that you've re-initiated  
the development of this plugin.

We figured it out.  Damn Blog Reordering plugin (which we aren't going  
to use).  We had a need to custom re-order posts & customized Admin  
Management XTended to allow a drag n' drop capability for it, didn't  
finish it & though Blog Reordering would do the trick.

Hmmm.  Not sure which development version then.  I think it's the  
latest from here:

But I can't say for sure.  Is that the latest?

I read in a previous message that the new devel version that has the  
ability to limit event queries based on category, which we've been  
hand developing for the past month or so.   Where is that?

Thanks so much -
