Hipster Ipsum


Instead of Lorem Ipsum, we have Hipster Ipsum. Uses hipster type vocabulary as filler text. Creates a shortcode that has the ability to create a variable number of paragraphs. Uses curl and the API at to get the text.


  • Example of the hipster ipsum text.


  1. Upload hipster.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Place [hipster] shortcode in your posts and pages to create filler text.


How do I change the number of paragraphs?

Change the PBR attribute in the shortcode. For example, if you wanted 10 paragraphs, use [hipster pbr=”10″]. If you wanted 1 paragraph, use [hipster pbr=”1″].

What is the default number of paragraphs.

The default is 4.
