Posts by Tag WordPress Plugin now supports shortcodes

One of the most requested features for my Posts by Tag WordPress Plugin was the support for shortcodes. Finally I got some free time over the weekend and was able to implement it.


In addition to supporting sidebar widgets and template tags, the Posts by Tag WordPress now also support shorcodes.

You can embed a list of posts from a set of tags by using the following shortcode anywhere in your post or page.

In addition to using the tags attribute, you can also use other attributes that are supported by the template tag. For the full list checkout the readme file or the Plugins homepage.

Ability to sort by title

In addition to the support for shortcodes, I have also added the ability to sort by post title in this release. You can choose to sort by title in the sidebar widget or specify in the $order_by param to the template tag or as an attribute to the shortcode.


You can download the latest version of the Plugin from the Plugin’s homepage.


Please keep the feedback coming and if you want me to add any new features or find a bug, please leave a comment.

    First off, thank you so much for this plugin! It is just what I was after.

    I’m using it via the shortcode and noticed a small problem. Although your documentation says the parameter is $num, using num in the shortcode does not work. However, using number does work.

    Thanks again for the awesome plugin!
