This plugin hasn’t been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



BeastiePress adds several shortcodes for interaction with the BSD community, including linking to ports, manual pages, and problem reports.

This plugin should be compatible with WP 2.8, but I’ve only tested it on my 3.0 site. Let me know!


This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.


  1. Upload plugin-name.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Place <?php do_action('plugin_name_hook'); ?> in your templates


Is this FreeBSD-specific?

For now, yes. FreeBSD is my go-to version. The [man] tag, however, links to the freebsd man page browser which has pages from other BSD flavors.
