WP Lipsum

Description

WP-Lipsum includes a collection of template fragments representing lots of common page types, from simple lorem ipsum paragraphs to demos of the WP comment system, and more. It works via a simple shortcode or template tag.

Using the Shortcode

[lipsum]

This outputs the basic content block. You can edit this in wp-lipsum/templates/basic.php.

[lipsum template=aux]

This outputs the auxilary lipsum page, with tables, definition lists, and more. You can edit this in templates/aux.php.

[lipsum repeat=4]

This outputs 4 simple paragphs of lorem ipsum text. You can edit the text in templates/p.php.

[lipsum template=ol repeat=3]

This loads the ordered list template and displays it 3 times.

[lipsum t=ol r=3]

You can also use “t” and “r” as parameter shortcuts.

Lipsum Templates and Fragments

Here are the full pages of lipsum content available:

  • Basic Content – “basic”
  • Aux Content – “aux”
  • Blog Demo – “blog”
  • Single Post Demo – “single”
  • Headline List – “headline_list”
  • Gallery Demo – “gallery”
  • Portfolio Demo – “portfolio”
  • Long Header Examples – “long_headers”
  • Short Content Demo – “short”
  • Template Fragments

You can also call these smaller fragments, and use the “repeat” parameter:

  • Single Paragraph – “p”
  • Unordered List – “ul”
  • Ordered List – “ol”
  • Definition List – “dl”
  • Table Example – “table”
  • Blockquote – “blockquote”
  • Blog Teaser – “blog_teaser”
  • Image (without caption) – “img”
  • Image with WP Caption – “caption”
  • Code Demo – “code”
  • Comments Demo – “comments”
  • Gallery Item – “gallery_item”
  • List of Headers – “headers”
  • Headline Teaser – “headline_teaser”
  • Misc Content – “misc”
  • Portfolio Item – “portfolio_item”

All lipsum template snippets are located in plugins/wp-lipsum/templates. You can easily add new template files in here, and call them with the “template” attribute.

Templates use Bedrock conventions, including class names (like .table-style and .post-nav), using H1s and H2s only for titles, and other concepts.

Image Dimensions

For the image templates, you can also pass in custom dimensions with the “width”, “height” and “align” parameters (shorcuts w, h and a). This works for the img, caption, portfolio & portfolio_item, and gallery & gallery_item templates.

[lipsum template=img width=300 height=150]

[lipsum t=caption w=300 h=150 a=right]

[lipsum t=gallery w=500 h=220]

[lipsum t=portfolio w=100 h=100]

Align can be set to “left”, “right”, “center” or “none”. These parameters default to 200×200, and alignleft.

Using the Template Tag

You can also call the plugin from your theme code, by using the display_lipsum_template() function:

<?php display_lipsum_template($template, $repeat); ?>
<?php display_lipsum_template('basic') ?>
<?php display_lipsum_template('table', 4) ?>
<?php display_lipsum_template('caption', 1, 500, 300, 'right') ?>
