Display Bloginfo Using Shortcode

Snippets by IsItWP

Are you looking for a way to call bloginfo parameters using shortcode? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to display bloginfo using shortcode in WordPress.


All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s functions.php file or in a site-specific plugin:

function bloginfoSC( $atts ) {
             extract(shortcode_atts(array(       'value' => '',   ), $atts));
             return get_bloginfo($value);

add_shortcode('bloginfo', 'bloginfoSC');
[bloginfo value='name']
[bloginfo value='url']
[bloginfo value='description']
[bloginfo value='charset']

Here’s a list of all the bloginfo parameters.

name                 = Blog name

admin_email          = [email protected]
