Plugin Directory

Plugin Info

Provides a simple way of displaying up-to-date information about specific WordPress Plugin Directory hosted plugins in your blog posts and pages.

You can install this plugin directly from your WordPress dashboard:

  1. Go to the Plugins menu and click Add New.
  2. Search for Plugin Info.
  3. Click Install Now next to the Plugin Info plugin.
  4. Activate the plugin.
  5. Now read the usage guidelines below.

Alternatively, see the guide to Manually Installing Plugins.

Usage

  1. Write a new blog post or page, or open an existing post or page for editing.
  2. In the 'Plugin Info' box on that screen, type the slug of the plugin (see screenshot #1). The plugin slug is the last part of the URL of the plugin's page on wordpress.org.
  3. Add a shortcode to your blog entry like this: [plugin version] and save the post. (That's the word 'plugin' and not the slug of the plugin by the way).
  4. Take a look at your post and the version number of the plugin will be displayed.

For a complete list of all the shortcodes you can use, see the FAQ page.
