This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



The plugin will allow users to embed a pastebin form into a wordpress page or post, using a special syntax. The form allows to paste plain text and save it getting back a direct link to it. This is how usually pastebin works: you will have it working inside your blog.

The plugin is built against PasteBox 1.0.

The plugin may not work until first beta release.

Good news, this plugin is free for everyone! Since it’s released under the GPL, you can use it free of charge on your personal or commercial blog. But if you enjoy this plugin, you can thank me and leave a small donation for the time I’ve spent writing and supporting this plugin. And I really don’t want to know how many hours of my life this plugin has already eaten 😉

  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


How doeas it work?

Simply create a new page, put inside the textbox the special tag () and save. Open the page, write down a title and paste your text inside the textbox. Once you press the ‘post’ button, your text will be stored as text file: save the link to share the content on forums and with mates.

Can I put anything else into that page?

Sure. You can insert eveything just above or below the special tag (e.g. explaination text, footnote or disclaimer).

Can I paste formatted text?

No. PastePress is meant to dump plain text (as most of pastebin scripts).

Does it support syntax highlighted text?

We plan to introduce syntax highlight support through geshi library in future stable release.
