Arbitrary Shortcodes

Allows page content to contain arbitrary shortcodes (e.g., [email]) that are replaced by the values of the home page's custom fields.

This plugin requires that you have WordPress set to show a static Page on the home page under Settings->Reading and "Front page".

  1. Upload the arbitrary-shortcodes/ folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. Fill your content on any page(s) on your site with the desired arbitrary shortcodes
  4. For each shortcode you would like to define, create a custom field (and value) on the page that is shown as the "home page" for the site.

Requires: 2.7.1 or higher
