Stream Manager

Description

We created Stream Manager with news editors in mind. Admins wanted the latest headlines to show up on the front page automatically, but didn’t want to give up the flexibility of pinning a major story in a featured spot or pushing a smaller item down below the fold.

Stream Manager provides a simple interface for curating feeds of new posts from the WordPress Admin. New posts show up automatically at the top of a stream, but content can easily be added, removed, or repositioned on the page via the stream editor. Admins also have the option of pinning a post, which will lock it in its current position regardless of new content.

Stream Manager is designed to work with Twig templating plugin Timber, as detailed in the installation instructions. Check out the Timber project page for more info.

Can streams be filtered by post type or category?

Yes! Streams can be filtered by post type, taxonomy, or just about anything else that can be passed into a wp_query array. Check out the github readme for details on filter hooks.

If you manage complex layout, with multiple post sources, chances are you either have those β€œstreams” hardcoded into your template or using something such as custom fields to manage them. Streams introduces a super useful alternative to that, with a small developer API you can hook into to customise the output. That, associated with the awesomeness to Timber for WP, it’s just pure bliss.

Full disclosure: I work with the authors of this plugin. But that also means I’ve made a bunch of sites with it for some big clients. It’s pretty much at the root of the editorial workflow for all of them, and I just couldn’t imagine being without it.
