This plugin allows the user to add single content in multiple posts and pages by means of a shortcode. It is used to fulfill the concept of PHPs include function. It can add HTML, CSS and JS also by using just a simple shortcode.
For example, my brands tagline, The Best Of Its Kind set to be used on various pages and posts, I would add that in Included Content and it will generate a shortcode against this content. This generated shortcode will now be placed everywhere I want to add my tagline. While adding the content, CSS and JS may also be added which will be included along with the HTML content, wherever the shortcode will be pasted.
Now in future, if I would change my tagline, I would need to change it only in Included Content and it will change it everywhere the shortcode was used.
- Upload include-content-by-shortcode to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
- Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress.
What will be the shortcode?
[includedcontentbyshortcode id=9999] will be the default shortcode with 9999 being replaced with the Included Content ID. The shortcode may be simply copied from Included Contents page against your post.
Can I use Included Contents slug in shortcode instead of the id?
Yes, instead of the id, slug may also be used like this: [includedcontentbyshortcode slug=MY_CONTENT_SLUG_HERE].
What if I dontt want to included custom CSS or JS on a specific page?
If you dont want to add the custom CSS written in Included Content on a specific page, you may pass the css parameter false in the shortcode like this: [includedcontentbyshortcode id=9999 css=false]. Similarly, if you dont want to add the custom JS written in Included Content on a specific page, you may pass the js parameter false in the shortcode like this: [includedcontentbyshortcode id=9999 js=false].
