A shortcode, showing planned posts.
For one of my projects, I was looking for a WordPress Plugin that shows the next planned posts in a widget. The one Plugin in the WP Repository seemd too “strong” to me, I wanted something more minimalistic.
So, I did my own minimalistic Plugin.
The Shortcode produces this:
- I’m turning one hundred! – 21. August 2087
This post is scheduled to be published on August 21, 2087. The day I turn 100.
It’s easy as 1-2-3
How to use the Shortcode
Install & Activate
Step 1: Install it via the WordPress Plugin Installer.
Plugins -> Install -> Upload the ZIP
Step 2: Activate it
Use the shortcode
If you are using the Classic Editor:
Just put in the shortcode.
If you are using the Gutenberg Editor:
Add a shortcode-block and paste in the shortcode.
By default, it will show the next 5 upcoming posts. If you want to show a different number, use the numberposts attribute, e.g.
I am working on a Version of this plugin that is a Block.
With it, you can place a block in the Gutenberg Editor.
