Display WordPress Import Plugins With Shortcode


One of the APIs on the WordPress website returns a list of third-party import tools. If you’re in the web business, the list might come in handy as something you can render on your website. The shortcode function (and PHP function) on this page will do nothing other than display them in a list. We list them on our reference page (as a reference for us as much as our clients).

The Result

The shortcode of [wpimporters] returns the following list of plugins.

WordPress Shortcode

Copy and paste the WordPress function into your theme's functions.php file or, if you sensibly have one installed, your custom functions plugin. You may optionally download and install our plugin from the bottom of of the page.

If you require shortcode to work in a sidebar widget, you'll have to enable the functionality with a filter. If you're using our custom functions plugin, you'll have that feature enabled by default.

PHP Function
