This plugin provides a simple way of displaying up-to-date information about specific plugins hosted on the WordPress Plugin Directory in your blog posts and pages. It is intended for plugin authors who want to display details of their own plugins from the WP Plugin Directory on their blog and want those details to remain up to date. It's also useful for bloggers who may blog about plugins and would like the details in their blog posts to remain up to date.

This plugin uses WordPress shortcodes so it's ridiculously easy to include any information about a particular plugin in your post or page.

This plugin allows you to use shortcodes in your blog posts and pages which fetches this information right from the WordPress Plugin Directory, therefore ensuring the information always remains up to date.
