Show Post Shortcode


This simple shortcode plugin allows you to list posts as a bulleted list linking to the full article. You can limit
the list to posts from a specific category and you can select the number of posts to show. The order</order> and
options lets you sort the list too.

Usage is simple. Create a page or post and use the code [showposts category="2" num="4"] – this will show
all 4 posts from category 2. Another example [showposts category="1" num="-1" orderby="date" order="DESC"]
shows all the posts from category 1 ordered by the date (newest post first).

By default, only 5 posts are shown (unless you use the num option) and sorting in by date (oldest to newest).


You can see two examples of the code working at the following links:
