From a single field to entire pages, Custom Content Shortcode is a set of commands to display content where you need.
The [content] shortcode displays any of the following: posts, pages, custom post types, fields, images, menus, or widget areas.
The [loop] shortcode performs query loops. It can display, for example, available products in a category, or excerpts from the 5 most recent posts. You can query by parameters such as: post type, taxonomy, date, and field values.
There is a reference section under Settings -> Custom Content.
Here are some of the included features:
- Wide range of query parameters to display site content
- Conditional content based on field value, login status, etc.
- Overview of your site’s content structure
- Relative URLs for links and images
- Cache the result of a query
- Optional: Gallery field, Mobile Detect, Math
Support for other plugins: Advanced Custom Fields, WCK Fields and Post Types
- Install & activate from Plugins -> Add New
- See: Settings -> Custom Content
