Plugin Description This plugin lists all posts by Author, nested Categories and Title, allowing to place the lists in any page.
Detail Plugin Description

Particularly suitable to all multi-nested categories and multi-authors website, with lots of posts and complex category layout (i.e.: academic papers, newpapers articles, etc), but also for single-user websites (read below). This plugin allows the user to place a shortcode into any page and get rid of a long and nested menu/submenu to show all site's posts (including custom post types assigned to a standard category). A selector in the page will allow the reader to select grouping by Category/Author/Title.

Shortcode's options include:

  • excluding any category from the list
  • excluding/including admin users from the list
  • single-user website usage
  • select what list(s) to display
  • limit number of posts in list output

Output grouped by Category will look like:

    post1                       AUTHOR
        post2                   AUTHOR
        post3                   AUTHOR
            post4               AUTHOR

Shortcode generator

The plugin installs a new menu ACT List Shortcodes in Admin->Tools. The tool is a helper to automatically generate the required shortcode. It will parse the options and display the string to be copied and pasted into any page.

Default manual usage:


all categories and subcategories post, excluding administrator's posts, grouped by (upon selection) Category/Author/Title

Exclude categories:

[ACT-list exclude="cat1-slug, cat2-slug, ..."]

listed categories will be excluded. Categories must be listed with their slugnames.

Include admin's posts:

[ACT-list admin=1]

this option will also include all admin's posts in the list.

Single-user website:

[ACT-list singleuser=1]

this option is suited for websites with a single author (or when you don't want to show the authors). It removes grouping by Authors and any author name. This option includes the admin=1 option, so that it will list any post in the website. You can still apply "excluding categories" option.

Select what list(s) to display

The parameter "show" will allow the admin to select what lists will be shown and if the dropdown selector is needed or not. i.e.:

[ACT-list show="Category, Author"]


[ACT-list show="Title, Category"]

Allowed terms for the "show" parameter are: Author, Title, Category.

Split the lists into separate pages

By selecting only one variable in the "show" parameter, you will be able to show only one list without the dropdown selector. This will enable you to put the 3 lists into separate pages, or separate tabs of the same page.

Page#1 (or tab#1) [ACT-list show="Category"]

Page#2 (or tab#2) [ACT-list show="Author"]

Page#3 (or tab#3) [ACT-list show="Title"]

Limit the number of posts in the lists

If you have a large numbers of posts (>2,000), it could be convenient to limit the number of posts in the lists, including only a certain amount of the most recent posts. This can be achieved separately for the 3 lists using the following parameters: postspercategory, postsperauthor, totalpoststitle. i.e.:

[ACT-list show="Category" postspercategory="20"] will show only the 20 most recent posts for each category.
