Page-list Plugin for WordPress

Page-list is an awesome plugin for WordPress that makes it easy to embed hierarchical lists of pages within a page.

Suppose, for example, you have a page called Countries and then below that pages like United States, Canada, etc. Rather than having to update the Countries page with links to the subpages, Page-list will let you embed that list automatically.

The short code [subpages] will list all pages in the hierarchy beneath the current page. You can also specify variables to expand or limit the depth of the hierachy displayed. For example, [subpages depth="1"] will only show a list of pages directly between the current page, while [subpages depth="4"] will show all pages up to four levels deep underneath the current page.

This makes it much easier to use and manage pages within WordPress.

Posts By Tag Plugin for WordPress

Posts By Tag is a plugin for WordPress that makes it easy to insert lists of tagged posts into pages and posts.

For example, I have dozens of posts tagged “Batman.” With the Posts By Tag plugin, I can insert a list of all posts with that tag by using the short code:

This will insert a bulleted, hyperlinked list to all of the posts I’ve written with that tag.
