.: Original message :.
I rewrote part of the code and added functionality. See [url=http://forums.b2evolution.net/viewtopic.php?t=15560]Viewing permissions?[/url] and the announcement in [url=http://www.blog.hemminga.net/index.php/2008/02/10/sorted-public-bloglist?blog=8]my blog[/url].
The plugin can now display Blogs that are not 'public'. So in the list in the Widget settings (Blog settings -> Widgets -> Sorted public bloglist) you find a default list with public Blogs. A blog is public if it's to be displayed in the Public Bloglist (Blog settings -> Features -> Include in public bloglist'). Well, the plugin allows you to re arrange Public blogs and won't complain if you add another. This is helpful if you don't want every blog to have the same Bloglist.
Furthermore there was a question in the forums. This is the situation. A blog has a few 'hidden' blogs that only have Protected posts, meant for Members only. I made a new setting for the Sorted Bloglist plugin that allows such a Blog to be in the Blogroll only if you are a member of that blog. So you see a larger Blogroll if you are member of (a) blog(s) than 'normal visitors' will see. That makes it easy for your members to navigate through the blogs. You could make groups or sections and everybody can navigate through the parts they are interested in.
This is the original announcement of the plugin:
I wrote a small widget that allows you to display the public bloglist the way you want. In fact the one thing you can change is the order of the list.
Use this widget as a replacement for the official Public Blog list widget. You can customize the bloglist in the Widget settings.
As you can see, in the widget settings appears a list with available blogs. You can arrange them the order you like. Remember two things: use it as a comma seperated list and do not omit or add items to this list.
Download the plugin
Unzip and upload to the /blogs/plugins/ folder of your server
Install the plugin in Dashboard -> Blog settings -> Plugins
Install the widget in Blog settings -> Widgets. Remove the 'Public Blog list widget' and use the 'Sorted Bloglist widget' instead.
In the settings for the widget (see picture) change the order of the available blogs
The new version adds an optional title for if you want to use the widget in the sidebar. The basic 'Public Bloglist Widget' comes with a title in one flavour only: Blogs, which is not a bad choice, but with this widget you are in full control of this title!
