This plugin for WordPress allows you to create your own query of posts and pages and displays the result wherever you like it – i.e. on a page or post only by adding a shortcode to it.
The great feature is that you can use nearly all the capabilities of a Wordpress query without having to change anything in the themecode of the page and it's completely independent from the internal Wordpress main loop/query used on this page/post.
You can query posts by custom defined taxonomies (if supported by your theme) as well as custom and standard catagories, post-types, meta-data and other parameters and combine them to your wishes.
An installed parser checks your input and supports you with error messages and helps you to form a correct query.
There are predefined output sections, that allow you to choose, what parts of information of your queryresults you want to show.
The output is styled with CSS-classes and has therefore a standard behaviour that can be used without any changes by most themes. An extensive set of custom CSS-classes, which are bound to the query, allow you to customize the output of each query independently in nearly any way you like.
Most of the code is based on modern OOP-technics (object orientated programming), that ensures a high stability of this plugin. Also the possibility of interfering with other plugins due to identical functionnames is very low.
An extensive documentation helps you to create your own queries in a short time.
The Premium version provides an administration panel for entering your queries, storing them in a database (keeps your pagecontent to edit shorter and more clearly) and a 'on the fly' syntax check. It also shows you the SQL-statement Wordpress generates to query the database.
To help you, we provide an online documentation with examples, that will be extended on demand.
