Chick Comic Embedder


This plugin enables a shortcode ([chickcomic]) that you can use to embed Jack Chick’s comics in you pages and posts. You can have it include a particular comic, or a random comic. You can give the comic’s container different styles, too.

Note: The plugin author is not affiliated with, and has no control over the availability of particular comics.


  • A comic embedded with the "Inset Box" style.
  • The settings page.


  1. Extract and upload it to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


What parameters can be set in the shortcode?

There are three optional parameters that you can set when you use the shortcode in your pages and posts. Below are some examples. For a complete list of options, you can visit the plugin’s settings page once it is installed. You can also set the default behavior of the shortcode there.

  1. ‘comic’ – Use this parameter to tell the shorcode what comic to display. For example, [chickcomic comic=”1″] or [chickcomic comic=”unloved”] or [chickcomic comic=”random”]
  2. ‘unavailable’ – Use this parameter to tell the shortcode what to do if the specified comic is unavailable. (The availability of the comics is subject to change, and is outside of the plugin author’s control). Example: [chickcomic comic=”1″ unavailable=”none”] will cause the shortcode to display nothing if the comic becomes unavailable.
  3. ‘style’ – Use this parameter to tell the shortcode how you want the comic displayed. For example, if you want it on the left with the other content wrapped around it, use [chickcomic comic=”1″ style=”wrap-left”].
