Generates an index of your posts that can be used in any page or post.
Here, you will find a page where the plugin is in use or have a look at the screenshots page to see it in action.
The plugin summarises all found blog posts added to a specific category or of a specific post type and lists them alphabetically or grouped by the used subcategory. Additional custom fields could be used to display links to other pages or additional information to a post.
- Customisable templates for the index entries to add any additional information:
- additional text
- custom field values
- Or any idea, you post me :)

Why does the index not appear?
Did you use an existing category or custom post type?
How to change the grouping?
The following groupBy clauses to be used in the shortcode
[post_index groupby=""] are supported:
- firstLetter - Groups the posts according to their first letter
- subcategory - Uses the subcategory of each post as its group key.
List of supported attributes for the shortcode
The base shortcode is
[post_index]. You can add any of the following attributes to change the output of the index. There are some options which makes no sense to combine. For example to use the category and categoryslug attribute as they will both indicate which category has to be used.
- category: Lists all entries that are in the given category, searched by it's name.
- categoryslug: Same as category but searched by the slug.
- groupby: Grouping as explaned in
How to change the grouping
- post_type: The index will be build for the given post type instead of the standard type
post. Please see WordPress Codex, Post Types for details.
- columns: The amount of columns. Default is 1.
