Show Post In lightbox


This plugin will provide functionality you to show posts from a category into a post/page using the [ostlist] shortcode.

This shortcode accepts a category id, the order in which you want the posts to display, and the number of posts to display. You can use [ostlist] as many times as needed with different arguments. Usage: [ostlist argument1=value1 argument2=value2].

No Instructions

It’s ridiculous what I just went through to find out what the arguments are. The plugin works via shortcodes. But there is no documentation on it. You can watch a youtube video of someone typing irrelevant things. Go to the website for more detailed instructions it says…. nope, bad link. So this is all there is for documentation… [ostlist argument1=value1 argument2=value2]
