ATW Show Posts

Aspen Themeworks Show Posts - Show posts or custom posts within your Theme's pages or posts using a shortcode and a form-based interface.

This plugin provides a very flexible way to show posts anywhere on a site using a shortcode. It works with any theme. Aspen Themeworks Show Posts is by far the most flexible with an easy to use interface to select which posts to show.

Easy to select which posts to show

There are several WordPress plugins that allow you to display selected posts via shortcode on your pages, other posts, or in widgets.

This plugin provides a powerful interactive admin page that allows you to specify exactly which posts you want displayed. The specifications are called a "filter", and you can define as many filters as you need to display different posts via the shortcode. Includes support for custom post types and taxonomies.

Style of Displayed Posts

ATW Show Posts will normally display posts using its own basic display functions. These can be easily styled to match the rest of your site by defining Custom CSS rules in the Custom CSS option.

But ATW Show Posts can go way beyond that. For many Themes, you can elect to use the native Theme Post formatting function. The posts displayed by Show Posts will match other posts displayed by your theme. If you are using the Aspen or Weaver II themes, there is even more integrated display of posts.

Show Posts in a Text Widget

You can add [show_posts] to the standard Text Widget. If your theme or other plugin doesn't add this capability, ATW Show Posts includes an option to allow the Text Widget to support shortcodes.

The Shortcode

The form of the shortcode is:

[show_posts filter=filter-name]
