Additional Content

Description

Add additional content on a post per post basis in the edit or publish post screen. The additional content editor can be used with all public post types.

Use this plugin for content that you, for whatever reason, don’t want to be included in the post content itself, like shortcodes, or code snippets used by other plugins.

Another benefit of using this plugin is if you want content to be displayed before or after content that is automatically added by other plugins. The priority parameter will let you do just that.

What is the priority option?

This plugin is basically a user interface for the_content filter. This filter allows themes and plugins to change (or add content to) post content before it’s displayed. The default priority for filters is 10. Higher numbers correspond with later execution of adding additional content. This option allows you to display the additional content before or after other plugins that add content with this filter.
