The Subtitle


The subtitle allows you to easily add a subtitle to your posts and retrieve it in the loop
in the same manner as the post title. By using the_subtitle() or get_the_subtitle().

It adds a simple inputfield right under the title field of posts, pages and any custom post type.

You can also use the shortcode [the-subtitle] to display it.


  1. Upload the plugin folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Add the ‘the_subtitle()’ tag to your theme
