Thingiverse Shortcode Plugin


Instead of copy-pasting info about a Thingiverse object into your posts, embed them with a simple [thingiverse] shortcode.

Want to display your most recently uploaded, created, or liked objects? You can do that, too, with the Thingiverse Stream widget!

Thing Embedding

For example, to embed thing:1842 enter this in a post or page:

[thingiverse thing=1842]

It is that simple.

Stream Embedding

The Thingiverse Stream widget allows you to embed Thingiverse streams into your sidebars. To use it, simply drag-and-drop the Thingiverse Stream widget to a sidebar and configure it.

There are two types of streams: Global and User. User streams require you to specify a Thingiverse username.

User Streams

  • designed – content from
  • like – content from
  • made – content from

Global Streams

  • featured content from
  • newest content from
  • popular content from
  • derivatives content from
  • made-things content from

Custom Formatting

Once installed, you can customize the look of your Things on the following files:

  • styles.css – CSS for both Streams and individual Things.
  • thingiverse-stream-widget.php – The widget method renders the stream.
  • templates/thing.php – Template for [thingiverse] shortcode embeds.
