Just Variables

Description

This plugin allow you to create simple text variables (single/multi-line) to use them in your theme templates after that.
Once you added at least one variable, a new page called Theme Variables will appear under the Appearance menu.
You can move all your text data (like copyright text, phone numbers, address etc.) to variables.
So if the final client wants to change this text, he can do this easily as admin without editing the template.

This project is also available on github.com:
https://github.com/aprokopenko/justvariables.

You can post issues, bugs and your suggestion in Issues tracker there.

Reviews

Invaluable!

In the interest of making as much of a website’s content editable by site owners as possible, this plugin fills a big need, namely that of Global variables that can be inserted anywhere but edited just once.

Great but just needs updating

Hi, great little plugin. You do need to update it to get it to work as documented in the support forum: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/just-wp-variables/

But it saved me at least half a day, so thank you!

Does it work in Contact Form email?

Thanks for plugin, it works good however it seems doesn’t work in Contact Form 7 emails. I get text [shortcode-variables slug=”contacts”] in email body. Could you advise how to fix it?
