Two categories ?[edit]

the version of dpl currently installed on Wikinews does not support logical OR selection. the latest version does but has not been installed so far on Wikinews. –Doldrums(talk) 14:00, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

  • Then what is it giving me now when I removed category=June 6, 2020, and just left it with category=2020 June 5  ? Wilhelm 15:23, 11 January 2008 (UTC).
i'm guessing dpl doesn't allow parserfunctions in its parameters and is ignoring the category parameter. the outputs with date category set using #time is identical to that with a blank category parameter, whereas a hard coded date category gives the right output. –Doldrums(talk) 15:42, 11 January 2008 (UTC)
DPL only works with some old time variables {{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} etc. Bawolff 20:58, 12 January 2008 (UTC)
with parser function

June 5, 2020

with blank category

with date category hard coded

Easy fix, no category for date?[edit]

So if I remove the category specified for the date, will it just pick the first 7 most recently published entries from category "published" ? Wilhelm 15:45, 11 January 2008 (UTC).

yes. :) –Doldrums(talk) 15:47, 11 January 2008 (UTC)
Awesome, thanks. Wilhelm 15:58, 11 January 2008 (UTC).
