Just Post Preview Widget

Description

This plugin is for developers who need easy to edit the complex layouts and insert different post tile blocks inside the layout,
sidebars or page builders. By default, it has 3 pre-defined layouts; you can rewrite them in your theme or register custom layouts.
Unfortunately the pre-defined layouts have no styles inside. (Because they will be overwritten in the theme 100% anyway).

Template files

To overwrite the pre-defined templates, you should create a folder with the name “just-post-preview” in the root
of your theme and copy required templates from the /wp-content/plugins/just-post-preview/layous/ folder.

File names format: jpp_layout_{layout key}.php

You can find PHP comments on the top of the demo templates. They help your IDE to show you autocomplete boxes for available variables.

Adding custom layout

To add a custom layout, you need to add a new filter hook in your theme functions.php file:

add_filter('jpp_post_preview_layouts', 'my_post_preview_layouts');
function my_post_preview_layouts($layouts){
    $layouts['my_layout_key'] = 'My custom layout';
    return $layouts;
}

After that hook you will need to create a template file in the /path/to/theme/just-post-preview folder with the name jpp_layout_my_layout_key.php.

That’s all!
