Visual Subtitle

Description

This plugin adds a Visual Subtitle field to all post, page and custom post types that have support for a title.

It allows you to include a string of text that will still be part of the post title, but be wrapped in a span tag, giving something like:

<h1>Visual Subtitle<span class="subtitle"></span></h1>

Keeping it as part of the main level 1 or two heading, means it maintains as much keyword SEO importance as the main title, yet can be given a style (in your own theme) of display: block; to make it visually appear as a subtitle.

The visual subtitle is appended to to the title on on the Posts screen, separated with a pipe (|) character, and appended to the title part of the document title with a colon (:) character.

Screenshots

  • The back-end interface, showing the Visual Subtitle field.
  • Showing the visual subtitle on the front-end, in this case, styled red, smaller, italic and bold.
  • The front-end markup, showing the span inside the existing heading element (may differ for your own theme).
  • Showing the subtitle in the Posts list - the second entry has no subtitle.
  • The subtitle can also be amended from the quick edit feature.

Installation

  1. Unzip and upload visual-subtitle folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.

FAQ

Can I change the separators?

Only currently by amending the plugin code.

My subtitle isn’t appearing on a new line?

You need to add the .subtitle { display: block; } style to your own theme, along with any other styling you want for it.
