Bloginfo Shortcode


This plugin adds a shortcode [blog] to pull info from like the template tag bloginfo(). Its very simple to use and supports the same values as bloginfo().

Why a shortcode and not the function in PHP? Sometimes I need to implement slight variations of the same site. This allows me to have the values propagate into the post content as needed without remembering every place that needs changes.

Its used like this:

[blog info="name"] 

This is the equivalent of the following in PHP:


Here are some example uses:

[blog info="name"] - Displays the "Site Title" set in Settings > General.
[blog info="description"] - Displays the "Tagline" set in Settings > General.
[blog info="wpurl"] - Displays the "WordPress address (URL)" set in Settings > General.
[blog info="url"] - Displays the "Site address (URL)" set in Settings > General.
[blog info="admin_email"] - Displays the "E-mail address" set in Settings > General. 

See here for all the usable parameters:

Fork away:


  1. Upload wp-bloginfo-shortcode.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Include the [blog info=””] shortcode in your editor….


I dont see any settings or options!

There arent any!

How to I enable it?

If the plugins system has it on then its working.
