List Category Posts

List Category Posts is a WordPress plugin that allows you to list posts from a category into a post/page using the [catlist] shortcode. This shortcode accepts a category name or id, the order in which you want the posts to display, and the number of posts to display. You can use [catlist] as many times as needed with different arguments.

Usage: [catlist argument1=value1 argument2=value2]

Please visit the plugin's page on to find out more.

Master: Build Status


A Vagrantfile is included to set up a box for WordPress development. You need Vagrant installed on your computer.

Fork the repo, clone it locally and do vagrant up. You'll have a WordPress instance running on

Install WordPress from that URL with this information:

  • Database Name: wordpress
  • User Name: wordpressuser
  • Password: wordpresspass

Activate the plugin on

The plugin code is linked directly on the box, so any change you make on the code is reflected automatically on the Vagrant box's WordPress.


[catlist argument1=value1 argument2=value2]
