It is possible to add the “Terms for Current Post” output directly into your site’s PHP files.

Using the Shortcode in PHP #

The best approach is to use the PHP to include the shortcode inside a PHP snippet, as in this example below.

<?php echo do_shortcode("[taxopress_postterms id="1"]"); ?>

Using the Legacy PHP Code #

There is also a legacy option allows you to make choices directly in the PHP code. This feature extends WordPress built-in function “the_tags()”. This is the basic code snippet.

<?php st_the_tags(); ?>

Here are examples of how you can customize that basic code with more details:

'before' => __('Tags: ', 'simpletags'),
'separator' => ', ',
'after' => '<br />',
'post_id' => '',
'xformat' => __('<a href="%tag_link%" title="%tag_name%" %tag_rel%>%tag_name%</a>', 'simpletags'),
'notagtext' => __('No tag for this post.', 'simpletags'),
'number' => 0

Here are all the legacy code parameters:

  • before
    • (string) Text to display before the actual tags are displayed. Defaults to Tags:
  • separator
    • (string) Text or character to display between each tag link. The default is a comma (,) between each tag.
  • after
    • (string) Text to display after the last tag. The default is to display nothing.
  • post_id
    • (integer) Specified post ID for display tag posts (outside loop by example)
