I’m working on a WordPress based website where many of the Posts need the same basic format and structure. The Posts are reviews, and it’s taken me while to work out the template.
Now the problem is: how to apply that template?
One solution, of course, is to set up a Text Markup ‘tag’ that I can call up from the menu in the MarsEdit toolbar. I’ve done that, of course.
Another option is to use the Simple Post Template WordPress Plugin:
Many bloggers use a similar format for many or all of their posts. WordPress provides no native way to pre-fill your new posts with such a template. This plugin provides the simplest solution to this problem. It takes 5 minutes to install and setup. The template allows you to define a title and a body and support HTML and even PHP.
Now when I create a new Post within my blog’s Dashboard, the template is there and all ready for me to add unique content for that Post.
Simple, but effective.
