These are all the shortcodes used in you Before, Content, and After which enables you to add other content and/or functions to the post list. This is the Developers version for the list of shortcodes (list many of the current known errors and notes), the user version can be found on the user's website plugin admin page.

  • [ID] - the unique ID number of the page/post
  • [post_author] - author name of the page/post
  • [post_permalink] - the page/post permalink
  • [post_date format="m-d-Y"] - date page/post was created *1
  • [post_date_gmt format="m-d-Y"] - date page/post was created in gmt time *1
  • [post_title] - page/post title
  • [post_content] - page/post content
  • [post_excerpt length="250"] - page/post excerpt (note the optional character 'length' parameter)
    • Issues with manual post excerpts.

  • [comment_count] - number of comments posted for this post/page.
