A WordPress Plugin to list posts in complex nested websites


List all posts by Authors, nested Categories and Titles is a WordPress Plugin I wrote to fix a menu issue I had during a complex website development. It has been included in the official WordPress Plugin repository. The Plugin is particularly suitable to all multi-nested categories and multi-authors websites handling a large number of posts and complex nested category layout (i.e.: academic papers, newpapers articles, etc). 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. A selector in the page will allow the reader to select grouping by Category/Author/Title. You can also manage to install a “tab” plugin (i.e.: Tabby Responsive Tabs) and arrange each group on its specific tab.

Output grouped by Category will look like:


post1 AUTHOR


post2 AUTHOR

post3 AUTHOR


post4 AUTHOR



while in the “Author” grouping mode, it is:


post1 [CATEGORY]

post2 [CATEGORY]


post1 [CATEGORY]

post2 [CATEGORY]


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.

The Plugin is holding a GPL2 license and it can be downloaded from its page on WP Plugins.
