Support » Plugins » Making shortcodes more dynamic

  • Resolved webtomap


    I am using a plugin (wp geo big map). If i put the following shortcode ( [big_map … lines=”0″ tag=”fast” cat=”2″]
    ) into a post or page it returns a map with all the posts that i specified.

    If I want to use the shortcode in my theme files, I use : <?php echo do_shortcode(‘[big_map … lines=”0″ tag=”fast” cat=”2″]’); ?>

    So far everything is oke.

    But in my Archives (archive.php)file I want the Shortcode to behave dynamically. I want the variables cat (category) and tag to change with the different archive pages. If I go to the tag page of the tag slow I want the posts containing the tag slow to be displayed on the map.

    Have found some suggestions but nothing worked for me.

    Hope someone can help
