Plugin / Local Syndication

Will Bontrager Software, LLC



Insert the content of any page/file/script output on the Internet into any WordPress post or page, or to a text widget.

Content can be published directly on the page or published in an iframe.

Examples of use:

  • Frequently updated or time-sensitive content.

  • Automated content generated from software.

  • Content provided by other websites or remote services.

The plugin is especially useful when you have more than one WordPress installation, perhaps on several domains. Common content across each installation can be pulled in with the URL of one central file – contact information, special sales, political notices, daily quotes, any content can be provided by a central file or script.

More information about the Local Syndication plugin can be found here:


Note: This plugin requires WordPress version 3.0 or higher. (Yes, this plugin has been around that long, and still works a treat.)

After uploading the Local Syndication plugin to the plugins directory and activating it:

A. Insert the following shortcode on a line by itself at the point where you want the content to be inserted.

[syndicate_local url=""]

B. Replace https://example.come/page.html with the URL to the content.

That is the minimum you need to know to use the Local Syndication plugin. With that knowledge, you are good to go.

Yet, there is more. There are advanced features and information about what to do when a page does not publish correctly.

Advanced features include:

  • The ability to insert plain text content with optional CSS formatting, with or without making HTML tags visible.

  • The ability to insert the content into an iframe instead of publishing it directly on the post or page.

  • The ability to convert the content into JavaScript before publishing (to discourage spiders/robots from reading the content).

  • The ability to import JavaScript directly to be published as live code.

Implementation instructions for all features and other good-to-know information are found here:
