Red Pixel Studios recently released updates for two WordPress plugins, RPS Include Content and RPS Blog Info.
RPS Include Content is useful when you need to include the same content across many posts or pages. For example, you may want to place your company boilerplate at the bottom of press releases in your News section. Instead of pasting the boilerplate copy at the end of each of these pages, you can insert a shortcode (along with the post ID, and for multisite configurations, the blog ID) where that content should appear.
When you modify your source copy, changes will appear on all pages that contain the shortcode. There’s no need to open and modify multiple pages.
The recent updates take RPS Include Content to version 1.1.2 and include these new features:
- Allows specific shortcodes to display within included posts.
- Respects the more tag in posts automatically.
- Set the length of the content to be displayed by word count.
- Option to remove the hover interface.
- Option to include private content.
- Default Settings page.
RPS Blog Info complements the Include Content plugin by conveniently providing in the WordPress toolbar the post ID and blog ID needed for the shortcode. In addition it provides an effortless way to view other information valuable to developers and server admins.
The recent update takes RPS Blog Info to version 1.0.4 and includes these new features:
- Enabled Blog menu to show on single site installs.
- Added server and remote IP addresses to Blog menu.
- Added alert indicator to show if site is running on localhost or if Search Engines cannot index.
The update also removed the last updated indicator since its usefulness was questionable.
