WP-pluginInfo

Description

WP-pluginInfo allows you to use a shortcode to list information about your activated plugins.

Valid shortcode syntax (a shortcut for [plugininfo] is [pi]):

  • [plugininfo /]: Lists all activated plugin using markup in WP-pluginInfo’s template.php
  • [plugininfo]<p><a href="%plugin_url%" target="_blank">%name%</a> version %version% by <a href="%author_url%" target="_blank">%author%</a>: %description%</p>[/pi]: Lists all activated plugin using the markup between shortcode.
  • [plugininfo wp-plugininfo /]: Lists information about specified plugin (in this case, wp-plugininfo). Separate items with space.

Keep in mind there are two shortcodes that do the same thing: [pi] and [plugininfo].

Installation

  • Use WordPress’ builtin plugin installation system located in your WordPress admin panel, labeled as the “Add New” options in the “Plugins” menu to upload the zip file you downloaded.
  • Extract the zip file and upload the resulting “wp-plugininfo” folder on your server under wp-content/plugins/.

All you need to do after that is navigate to your blog’s administration panel, go in the plugins section and enable WP-pluginInfo.

Then simply insert the shortcode [plugininfo] or [pi] to list all plugins and/or [plugininfo plugin_name] or [pi plugin_name] in a post or page.

For more information, see the “Installing Plugins” article on the WordPress Codex.
