ShortcodesBack to top

A shortcode is provided to display the project list: simply add [project_list] in any page/post where you want to show the list.

The following parameters can be used with the shortcode: category and tag - only one. Ex: [project_list category="movies"], [project_list tag="superhero"]. To call the category/tag wanted, use the category/tag' slug.


TemplatesBack to top

To ensure the plugin can displays your content in optimal contitions, verify that your site's theme uses the wp_head(), body_class(), post_class(), & the_content() template tags (standard in any professional theme).

Project Page

By default, the plugin injects your content directly in the page, above any content added in the main editor. To do this, it searches your template folder for the single-project.php file. If it isn't available, the plugin uses the page.php template. If page.php also doesn't exists, it uses single-project.php in /mnd-filmography/templates/.

If you want to customize the output in the project page (ex: modify the fields order):

Project List

To display the project list and category/tags archives, the plugin uses the archive-project.php file in your theme first, or in /mnd-filmography/templates/ second. The projects are displayed automatically when published and are sorted by the published date.

If the default template doesn't match your theme's markup, or you want to customize it:

Project Navigation

To display a previous/next type of navigation between projects, simply use the following tag in the single-project.php or page.php template:

<?php mndfilm_project_navigation(); ?>
