Mini Manager 1.0

August 11th, 2007

The WordPress plugin “Mini Manager”, written by Charlie Evans, Sr. Developer at Netconcepts, was designed for a client who wanted to manage mini blocks of HTML, then include them in posts or pages simply by using their reference name in curly braces, like so:

Examples of Use:

  • Isolate tricky JavaScript or Flash code. Instead of having lines of complicated code in the content field of posts – create a miniblock of code and reference it.
  • Bypass complications caused by advanced HTML within the WordPress WYSIWYG interface
  • Insert an image or logo without having to create individual HTML references

It is completely free and has been released as “open source” under the GPL license. So enjoy!

Features include:

  • “Manage MiniManager Blocks” form page
  • Add new blocks of text
  • Edit existing blocks of text
  • Manage large blocks of code from one single admin
  • And best of all, it’s FREE!

Download the plugin!

Installation instructions

  1. Upload mini-manager.php to your wp-content/plugins directory.
  2. Activate the plugin.

Implementation Instructions:

  2. Click on “MiniManager Blocks” tab
  3. Select “Create New Block” and click “Continue”

    Note: the “Reference_Name” is what will be referenced in the post content field to call the block of code

  5. Type the “Reference_Name” within curly braces { } in the content where you wish the block of code to appear.
    For Example:
    When you have everything configured, insert “” within a post or page where ever you want the specified code block to appear.
