Support » Theme: Storefront » list pages within a page using shortcodes (storefront theme)

    (@tjobbe)


    I have a page on my site and I’d like to using a [shortcode] if possible, display a list of other pages by ID. I will need to have the Thumbnail, URL and Title of the page in question pulled in, so as to look like a regular category on my site, http://www.bagnboxman.co.uk

    I have tried the syntax on this page https://en.support.wordpress.com/list-pages-shortcode/ but then I read somewhere else that certain shortcodes don’t work in storefront.

    Is there another way?

    Hi @tjobbe – a shortcode for that is not part of Storefront core. There are a few other options available if you look here: https://wordpress.org/search/shortcode+list+pages

    Given that this is not related to Storefront specific, I’ll mark this topic as resolved. Your best bet to find other help is the general WordPress forum.

    Hi Job,

    This IS related to storefront, as this shortcode is NOT supported by storefront only, so I’m looking for another way to do this.

    I can’t use shortcodes if I can’t use shortcodes, so there’s no point in me looking for shortcodes, I need to find a way that apparently only works for storefront.

    Hi @tjobbe, the link you sent us is something that’s only available on WordPress.com, not on self-hosted sites.

    I’ve used the same shortcode on the TwentySeventeen default theme and you’ll see that this is not working either:

    Shortcodes do work on Storefront, but there’s no “generator” in WordPress.org core. So basically, you’re adding a shortcode, but there’s no bit of code on your site (yet), that will convert the shortcode into relevant information.

    The link I sent earlier gives an overview of plugins you can install to get that type of shortcode running.

    Thank you, @job, really appreciate it 🙂
