The Dynamic Post Meta Plugin adds 6 shortcodes that allow you to add dynamic post meta information to your post content. Please read the Dynamic Post Meta Plugins readme.txt file for full instructions on using the shortcodes. All shortcodes will default to showing the currently viewed posts meta unless the “id” parameter is set to show a different posts meta information.
You can use the text editor in WordPress to add html tags around your shortcodes for formatting. For example you could add this in your posts text editor:
Here is a description of the 6 new shortcodes you can use after activating this plugin:
- [post-permalink id=123] >> This shortcode adds a clickable permalink to a post.
- [post-date id=123] >> This shortcode adds a posts published date to your post content.
- [post-modified id=123] >> This shortcode displays the last time a post was edited.
- [post-author id=123] >> This shortcode displays a post author’s nickname(may need to fill this field in).
- [post-title id=123] >> This shortcode adds a post title to your post content.
- [post-excerpt id=123] >> This shortcode adds a post excerpt into your post content.
