Peter’s Blog URL Shortcodes


Adds shortcodes [blogurl], [posturl], [templateurl], and [childtemplateurl] for WordPress 2.6 and up. Use [blogurl] to generate your site URL. It offers the parameters “slash” and “noslash” (to add a trailing slash; [templateurl] and [childtemplateurl] also support this), as well as “uploads” to produce the URL of the uploads folder and “wordpress” to produce the URL of your WP files. Use [posturl id=3] (replace “3” with a post ID) to generate the permalink for any post.


  • [blogurl] will generate

  • [blogurl wordpress] will generate the URL to the root of your WordPress files, if they are in a different location than your site root

  • [blogurl noslash] will generate

  • [blogurl uploads] will generate

  • [blogurl uploads noslash] will generate

  • [posturl id=375] will generate the correct permalink for the post with an ID of 375; for example, <a href=”[posturl id=375]”>post about this plugin</a> would generate post about this plugin

  • [templateurl] will generate the URL to your parent theme’s root

  • [childtemplateurl] will generate the URL to your child theme’s root


  • WordPress 2.6 or higher


Unzip blog_url_shortcodes.php to your WordPress plugins folder. It should work out of the box, but you can tweak some settings in the plugin file itself if needed.
