Custom Content Shortcode

Description

Overview

From a single field to entire pages, Custom Content Shortcode is a set of commands to display content where you need.

The [content] shortcode displays any of the following: posts, pages, custom post types, fields, images, menus, or widget areas.

The [loop] shortcode performs query loops. It can display, for example, available products in a category, or excerpts from the 5 most recent posts. You can query by parameters such as: post type, taxonomy, date, and field values.

There is a reference section under Settings -> Custom Content.

I wish I'd found this years ago. I've used this plugin to create detailed, dynamic loops in very complex sites, saving hours on hours of custom programming. It can draw from WordPress loops, ACF fields, you name it. It's truly fantastic. But what prompted this review was this morning's revelation, that it can create "meta shortcodes" - so once you get your complex shortcode-loop structure built, you can create a shortcode out of that, and replace it all with one easy-to-use shortcode. I'm so excited to have found this.

Amazing plugin. At a time when many web sites are implemented on templates (wpbakery, Divi, Elementor) that have huge restrictions, this plugin allows you to bypass these restrictions. This plugin deserves your support. In combination with ACF, it gives us a lot of possibilities. I think it's worth refreshing the plug. The plug eats my paragraphs 🙂

I use it on several sites and it is really a very good tool. I would like maybe more regular updates to be sure that he still has many years of existence ahead of him ...

Thanks for this! It allowed us to replace a huge chunk of code that was tangled up in a Pro theme when we redid a website (in an effort to simplify it). We used the plugin to pull a title, a preview (featured image), a download URL, and a PDF viewer URL from an ACF / custom post type and display all that in a sidebar widget.

I was looking since days for a way to show and sort lists of custom fields and only with this plugin I could finally manage to create those kind of lists. Also the support was very helpful. Thank you for this great plugin!
