I’d like to announce the official release of the updated Hide/Cut Post Text plugin (v2.0) for WordPress.
Hide (so no one, or only users above a certain userlevel, can see) or cut (so only viewable on post’s permalink page) portion(s) of post text. Link text for cuts can be defined per-cut or omitted, and if used, cut links are uniquely anchored.
The plugin’s official homepage is located at :
This release debuts the admin options page for the plugin, which provides an interface to configure to plugin to individually enable/disable the cut, hide, and show, as well as other options. The tags work on pages now as well. The release also brings with it full compatibility with WordPress 2.3+ and 2.5.
This update is part of coffee2code’s 14 Days of Plugins (updated plugin #14).
Comments welcome on this post for this version of the plugin. Comments will be closed once this release has been superseded by another.

These are the detailed changes, which may or may not make sense to you depending on your familiarity with the previous features and internals of the plugin.
- Created its own class to encapsulate plugin functionality
- Added an admin options page that also includes documentation and examples
- Used preg_replace_callback() instead of preg_replace() and thus modified the argument handling of the callback functions
- Fix so that ‘cut’ and ‘show’ work for pages as well
- Added settings to individually enable/disable the parsing of hide, cut, and show tags. Can also configure the default linktext, the default userlevel for the hide tag, and if quicktag buttons should be created.
- Changed installation instructions
- Added compatibility note
- Updated copyright date and version to 2.0
- Moved into its own subdirectory; added readme.txt and screenshot
- Tested compatibility with WP 2.3.3 and 2.5
