Template Tag Shortcodes

Description

Template Tag Shortcodes is a plugin that turns many of the WordPress template tags into easy-to-use shortcodes.

This plugin was created so end users could make use of the template tags within their posts and pages. Currently, this plugin creates 40+ shortcodes for use. Not all template tags are available as shortcodes, but you are more than welcome to request others be added.

See the FAQ or the included readme.html for a list of all available shortcodes.

What are the parameters for each shortcode?

There are several parameters for many shortcodes and none for others. Each shortcode represents its equivalent template tag. A list of the available parameters for each shortcode is included in the plugin’s readme.html file.
