Simple Course Creator Post Meta

View it on WordPress: (

This is an add-on plugin for use with the Simple Course Creator plugin.

Simple Course Creator is designed to easily link posts together in a series and output that series list in the content of each included post.

This post meta add-on outputs additional information about each post in the post listing. The information displays right beneath the post title.

How It Works

Once activated, the post authors and dates published will appear beneath the post titles.

Once activated, new options will be added to the SCC settings page under the display tab. You can hide the author, date, or both.

New customizer options will also be available. If you have Simple Course Creator Customizer installed, your new settings will be merged. Otherwise, they will appear on their own.

Theme Overrides

You can edit the post meta output using the following filters in your theme functions file.

For the "written by" text:

function your_filter_name( $content ) {
	$content = str_replace( 'written by', 'post author', $content );
	return $content;
add_filter( 'written_by', 'your_filter_name' );

For the "on" text:

function your_other_filter_name( $content ) {
	$content = str_replace( 'on', 'date', $content );
	return $content;
add_filter( 'written_on', 'your_other_filter_name' );

This plugin, like WordPress, is licensed under the GPL. Do what you want with it. I seriously don't care.
