Very useful

This plugin is a great find for using custom queries - much simpler than a lot of similar plugins out there, but gets the job done. I love that it is using shortcodes, entering your query directly in a widget or post is much easier than having to go into a separate control panel to generate them.

Simply add posts inside pages

I've tried a lot of different ways to show selected types of posts inside pages - this worked!!! EG, able to show latest posts from a specific category, with a specific tag, on a page... yay!

Powerful indeed, with even bigger potential

This plugin gives you the power to do query loops with shortcodes. The built-in functions should be plenty for most people to display posts and pages just how they want.

For an even more extensive control, I am using this plugin with the following combination: Custom Post Type UI, Advanced Custom Fields, and an additional shortcode called "custom" to display custom fields from any post of any type.

I changed how the output of this plugin is returned, so it's possible to have shortcodes within the query loop - that really opens up possibilities. I also added a couple of additional keywords to this plugin: {ID}, {IMAGE}, {IMAGEURL}, {TAGS}.

With all that together, it's possible to do query loops like this:

[query post_type="apartment"]
{TITLE}<br/>
{THUMBNAIL}<br/>
Description: [custom id="{ID}" field="description"]<br/>
Monthly Rent: [custom id="{ID}" field="rent"]<br/>
Availability: [custom id="{ID}" field="availability"]<br/>
[/query]

As you can see, the "custom" shortcode pulls out the custom fields from the posts during the loop.

This allows me to have view templates for all kinds of content. The reason why I'm raving about this plugin is that it helps me to show content any way I want, without having to go into PHP. A step towards a more powerful and flexible CMS!

All seems to work with no problem
