Rudimentary Information

Description

Rudimentary Information allows you to grab information specifically for an individual theme or plugin by fetching data from the WordPress Themes API and Plugins API. This plugin is very simple yet easy to use by providing a valid slug and field to display a specific information. This plugin uses shortcode to display information.

Working with Themes

To display a specific theme, please use the following shortcode

[theme-info slug=’theme-slug’ field=’version’]

The slug is the name of the theme that you want to display. The field is an array of choices that you can use to display a piece of information such as version or last_updated information.

The following fields that are currently supported are as follow:

  • name
  • homepage
  • screenshot_url
  • preview_url
  • download_link
  • downloaded
  • last_updated
  • version

Working with Plugins

To display a specific plugin, please use the following shortcode

[plugin-info slug=’plugin-slug’ field=’version’]

The slug is the name of the plugin that you want to display. The field is an array of choices that you can use to display a piece of information such as version or last_updated information.

The following fields that are currently supported are as follow:

  • name
  • homepage
  • screenshot_url
  • preview_url
  • download_link
  • downloaded
  • last_updated
  • version

Now supports Meta Box and Widget, an extra feature that you don’t need to waste your time with shortcode but shortcodes will be avaiable if you need to grab small information from the API. For this new feature to work properly, you will need to set a theme slug or plugin slug in the Portfolio (Jetpack Portfolio) page. This will save the slug as part of the page and you can use the plugin info widget or theme info widget to display the specific theme. Displays Tags is also supported in its own Widget.

[theme-info slug=’theme-slug’ field=’name’] for themes

[plugin-info slug=’plugin-slug’ field=’name’] for plugins

How to use Meta Box and Widget

In this new feature, you can use Meta Box and Widget to display your information. The easiest way to do this is to create or modify a page that is under Portfolio, you will then see two new Meta Box for Theme Slug and Plugin Slug, use one or other depending on the current page that you are working on. Once this slug is set, then you can add a widget to the portfolio sidebar to display information automatically. This will only display last updated, version, and how many times the theme or plugin has been downloaded.
