optiontree Shortcode


This plugin adds a shortcode [ot_get_option] to pull info from like the function ot_get_option(). Its very simple to use and supports the same values as ot_get_option().

BEWARE: It will not work with options that return non-text values.

Why a shortcode and not the function in PHP? Sometimes I need to implement slight variations of the same site. This allows me to set my options in the UI and have the values propagate into the post content as needed without remembering every place that needs changes.

If you aren’t using OptionTree ( ) this will probably be useless for you!

Its used like this:

[ot_get_option option_id="XYZ" default="123"]

This is the equivalent of the following in PHP:


Fork away:


  1. Upload wp-optiontree-shortcode.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Include the [ot_get_option] shortcode in your editor….


I dont see any settings or options!

There arent any!

How to I enable it?

If the plugins system has it on then its working.
