WordPress Plugin: Simple Custom Content

[ Simple Custom Content ] Simple Custom Content is a free WordPress plugin that makes it easy to add custom content to your posts and feeds. SCS enables you to add custom content to all of your posts and all of your feeds, and provides several shortcodes for adding custom content in specific posts, pages, and just about anywhere.

Installation

Upload and activate. Visit the SCS Settings page to add some custom content.

Options

For each of the all-posts and all-feeds options, you can specify where you would like to display the custom content:

  • At the beginning of the post or feed
  • At the end of the post or feed
  • At both the beginning and end of the post or feed
  • Or do not display custom content (disable)

For the shortcodes options, you basically get to add custom content for the following shortcodes:

  • [scs_feed] – content displays wherever shortcode is included in feed items
  • [scs_post] – content displays wherever shortcode is included in posts
  • [scs_both] – content displays wherever in both posts and feeds
  • [scs_alt] – bonus shortcode displays custom content wherever you want

Additionally there is a “Restore Default Options” setting that basically does what it says.

Screenshots

Here’s a nice overview shot of the SCS Settings:

  1. Excellent work Jeff…..

  2. I too love finding awesome plugins and this is definitely one that I will be checking out. I do have a question have you noticed if this plugin has slowed down your site at all? It seems it would be a rather heavy plugin to use.

    • Jeff Starr

      Not at all, this plugin is built on native/existing WP functionality so it works with WordPress instead of slowing it down.

  3. Excellent plugin! I’ve been looking all over the Web for something like this, and the search has been well worth it :) easily customized and installed onto the site, and it works like a charm! Congratulations on your hard work!

    As happy as I am with it, I have a couple of questions though:

    1. I see that we can assign a registered user who will appear as the author of the posts. Is there a way to automatically place the name of the registered user who submitted it in the first place?

    2. Would it be possible to automatically email the users who have submitted content in order to let them know if their post was accepted, modified or rejected?

    I really love your plugin! Thank you very much again!

      Thanks for the great feedback Carla :)

      Are you asking about User Submitted Posts or Simple Custom Content? This is the SCS page, but I can let you know that there is a new version of USP that automatically assigns names for registered users. It doesn’t send auto-emails, but I can add that to the wishlist for the next update.
