Show Post Categories

LICENSE TYPE: INFINITE

Description

So, you are tired of retyping data within your post. You want a quicker way to import data based on your post or page settings into, for example, a review table?
You just need one specific category to show up within your blog post? And maybe youd want a hyperlink added too?

Search no further! We created this beatifull plugin to make this happen.

By using a very simple Shortcode you will be able to show all Categories related to a Blog Post or Page.
Even better; you will be able to filter within specific Parent Categories. And ofcourse there are times you want to show or hide the Parent Category ,and that is no problem too!
Oh, and before we forget you can choose wether to show this as Hyperlink or not. Just so that your visitor has a simplified UX.

But it does not end there; we are constantly working on new features. This plugin isnt limited to just showing categories;
You can print the author details, the page/post title, its unique ID, etc..

I hope you will enjoy this plugin, if you do come over and say thanks at willemso.com, suggestions for improvement and features are welcome!

Yes, ie;

[show_post_categories show="category" separator="| "] 

Yes;

  • Select settings at the admin dashboard, go to Show Post Categories
  • Modify the default value of the textbox next to separator

You will still be able to modify this separator on an ad hoc basis.

Yes;

  • Select settings at the admin dashboard, go to Show Post Categories
  • Modify the default value of the dropdown next to Hyperlink target

We are working on I18n. We did however implement a quick workaround;

  • Select settings at the admin dashboard, go to Show Post Categories
  • Modify the default value of the textboxes

Sure, we implemented a reset button for this purpose..

  • Select settings at the admin dashboard, go to Show Post Categories
  • Hit the button..

We like good practices, so during the deinstall process well remove all files and settings. Your database will have no trace of Show Post Categories.
However this means that custom settings will be removed too.

Once deinstalled you will need to remove all shortcode tags youve ever entered or it will show the used code without output..
