“Werk aan de Muur” / “Art Heroes” is an online marketplace for print on demand wall art. Artists and photographers can upload their images, set their commissions, and instantly sell custom art prints to customers from across Europe.
With this plugin, you can easily integrate your “Werk aan de Muur” or “Art Heroes” shop into your own WordPress site. After installation, there are two tags you can use to add a list of artworks to a page or post. Note that all shortcodes / tags are available in two variants,
artheroes_xxx. The older
omp_xxx is still supported for backwards compatibility, but you shouln’t use it anymore. Functionally they’re exactly the same, they’re just aliases for eachother.
[wadm_artlist] / `[artheroes_artlist]` / `[omp_artlist]` (old alias, don't use this anymore)
This tag prints a paginated list of your artworks. The output can be customized with a few attributes:
limit: Number of artworks per page. Default is 12 artworks. Max. 33 artworks per page.
columns: Specifiy the number of columns. Defaults to 3 columns.
order: Set the artwork order. Defaults to order as in shop. Accepted values are
medium_id: Show prices of a specific medium. Defaults to the preferences in your shop. Accepted values are:
2: Framed print
3: Poster / photoprint
13: Acoustic prints
15: Alu-dibond Acryl
16: Seamless wallpaper
size: Show prices of a specific size. Defaults to the preferences in your shop. Accepted values are:
locale: Set the desired locale. Defaults to your shop language. Accepted values are:
For example, show 20 artworks in 2 columns, ordered by date (descending, newest first) with this tag:
[wadm_artlist limit=20 columns=2 order=date_desc]
Or a second example, show artworks with small Alu-dibond as default material with this tag:
[wadm_artlist medium_id=4 size=small]
[wadm_album albumid=999] / `[artheroes_album albumid=999]`
The album tag allows you to print artworks from a specific album. You can find the album id in your artist dashboard. The output can again be customized with the
order attributes. The
albumid attribute is required. For example:
[wadm_album albumid=999 limit=20 columns=2]
[wadm_artwork artid=999] / `[artheroes_artwork artid=999]`
Prints a specific artwork. Use the ‘werkcode’ as artid.
Specific locale / website to link to
[wadm_artwork locale=de_AT] / `[wadm_artwork locale=de_AT]`
If your website has locale support you can redirect the visitor directly to the matching “Werk aan de Muur” or “Art Heroes” website. Currently supported locales are

I don’t see my changes at Werk aan de Muur on my WordPress site!
Due to caching there can be a delay of approximately 2 hours before you see any changes like title or price updates appear on your WordPress site. This is intended behaviour, sometimes some patience is required!
The plugin doesn’t work!
There’s a short list of things you can check if the plugin doesn’t work.
- Is the plugin activated?
- Did you supply the correct Artist ID and API key?
- Does the page or post you’re testing contain a shortcode? The simple code
[wadm_artlist]should always show a list of artworks.
Still don’t get the expected result? Then there are a few more technical things to check.
- Your site should be able to connect to the outside world. Check (with your hosting provider) if the ‘fopen wrappers’ are enabled, and that you’re allowed to use ‘file_get_contents()’.
- The plugin connects on an HTTPS url. Make sure your server has the appropriate (OpenSSL) libraries enabled, and is able to make an SSL connection.
