- [REQUEST] Plugin for Live Tile support on Windows
#1 Jul 05, 2015 17:31
I wouldn't mind seeing a plugin to properly support this. For those unaware it enables support for Live Tile updates on the Start menus of Windows 10, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 and up. Displaying images and text pulled via XML.
Microsoft do provide a service to create the data from an RSS feed, but generally it doesn't work that well, and doesn't always match the images and text up properly in my experience. Links to these are then placed in the site's head tags. So if this could be handled via a plugin to remove the reliance on the 3rd party that would be handy.
Essentially you'd just need a skin, to spit out something like this:
For say the last 5 or so posts, and then link to that in the head tags:
WordPress plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-windows-pinned-tiles/
