GenerateWP WordPress Plugin

Using this plugin you can showcase your code snippets from GenerateWP.com in your WordPress site, using the snippet URL or snippet ID.

Choose any public snippet from your dashboard or from the sites public snippet library, or create your own! Copy the snippet URL and paste it into your text editor. Then simply click over to the visual editor to confirm that it loads properly.

Alternatively, you can embed snippets to your content using the [generatewp id=""] shortcode with the following attributes:

  • id – Snippet ID (required).
  • theme – The embedded snippet theme. Accepted themes: github, geonyx, kimono, paradise, soft, zenophilia, md (material design), luminous_dark (dark theme), luminous_light (light theme). Default is ‘github’.
  • lang – Cod syntax language. Accepted languages: php, html, css, javascript. Default ‘php’.
  • ln – Line numbers are turned on by default but you can turn it off using the ln parameter and set it to zero (0).
  • sl – Starting line number. Default 1, if line numbers turned on.
  • al – Auto-link links listed in the code. Default 0, no auto links.
  • mh – Max height for the embedded snippet to overwrite vertical scroll bars. Default 500 (pixels).

How do I embed snippets from GenerateWP?

With this plugin you can use the URL to embed snippets. Just paste the snippet URL into your post editor:
https://generatewp.com/snippet/0md9rdy/

How do I set custom dimensions to my snippets?

Since WordPress 4.2, you can double click the embedded item to set max width and max height. It will add the WordPress [embed] shortcode:
[embed width=”600″ height=”400″]https://generatewp.com/snippet/0md9rdy/[/embed]

Note: Doing it the WordPress way, using the [embed] shortcode, is backwards and forward compatible, and it works with all the themes.

Can I customize the embedded snippet?

For advanced customization, use [generatewp id=""] shortcode with the following attributes:

  • id – Snippet ID (required).
  • theme – The embedded snippet theme. Accepted themes: github, geonyx, kimono, paradise, soft, zenophilia, md (material design), luminous_dark (dark theme), luminous_light (light theme). Default is ‘github’.
  • lang – Cod syntax language. Accepted languages: php, html, css, javascript. Default ‘php’.
  • ln – Line numbers are turned on by default but you can turn it off using the ln parameter and set it to zero (0).
