  • class[x] = a custom class name that will be added to each container element

Shortcode for including single/multiple posts by their category.
Every option required or used in the include-post-by-id will also pass through here.
This function will query the DB and then call include-post-by-id once for each resulting post.
Shown here are only the options which are unique to this function.

[include-post-by-cat
 cat="123"
 order="DESC"
 orderby="date"
 paginate=true
 perpage="5"
 offset="0"
 class_container="custom-class-name"
]
  • cat = category to be shown
  • order = sort order
  • orderby = what to sort by
  • paginate = true/false
  • perpage = items per page. -1 = all
  • offset = how many posts to skip, useful if you are combining multiple includes
