Include Me

Description

Include Me helps to include in posts or pages external files usually to be shared
between different posts or pages or that contains PHP or other code that can be
compromised by the visual editor.

The use is immediate: the shortcode [includeme] is all that you need (see the documentation
on Include Me official page).

The best way to use it is to include functionalities
written in external PHP that will be rendered in post body or to include pieces of
javascript that will be hard to add with WordPress editor.

Inclusions can be rendered with IFRAME if needed to create boxes that display
external web pages.

This plugin is made of few line of code, ultralite!

I tried many plugins to find a plugin that would allow me to replace my PHP includes statements with something that would work in the WordPress editor. This is the one! Using the short code [includeme file='/filename.php'] is all you need. And it works with WordPress 5.8.2.

The developer of this plugin released a buggy version and do not even care answering the users for the last 3 weeks!!! Too bad! This plugin used to do the job for me but not anymore. I am switching to the β€œInsert page” plugin which does the job and is well manage.

I use this to enable version control (Git/GitHub) of custom code in vanilla WordPress Pages. No more coding Pages in WordPress' editor! πŸŽ‰

Simple, easy to use when files are in the includeme folder. I use it to copy posts into a page, works well, but... It would be nice if it had an option to copy the title of the post as well. Dave
