Peepso Core [peepso_search] Shortcode

The Peepso Search shortcode is a dynamic tool that generates a search function within your WordPress site. It uses the PeepSo plugin to set up a dedicated search area. This shortcode initiates a search module, checks user access, and if granted, it outputs a search template. The search context is set to ‘shortcode’, allowing customization. The query is then reset to ensure smooth operation.

Shortcode: [peepso_search]

Examples and Usage

Basic example – The shortcode peepso_search is used to display a search form for PeepSo.


For advanced examples, you can customize the shortcode with additional parameters. However, in the given PHP code, it does not show any additional parameters that can be passed to the shortcode. The PeepSo search form does not seem to have any customizable options through the shortcode. If you want to customize the search form, you may need to do it through the PeepSo settings or by customizing the PeepSo search template.

Advanced example – Unfortunately, based on the given PHP code, it does not show any additional parameters that can be passed to the shortcode.


Please note that you should always check the plugin documentation or contact the plugin developer for more details about the shortcode usage and parameters.

Peepso Core [peepso_tag] Shortcode

PeepSo-Core shortcode is a PHP function that allows users to mention others in their posts. It takes a user’s ID as an attribute, retrieves the user’s full name, and replaces the shortcode with a mention of the user in the post content and excerpt. If no name is provided, it uses the user’s full name as the preferred name.

Shortcode: [peepso_tag]


Here is a list of all possible peepso_tag shortcode parameters and attributes:

  • id – The unique identifier of the PeepSo user
  • content – Optional, specifies the name to be displayed. Defaults to full name of the user if not set.

Examples and Usage

[peepso_tag id=3 /]

Advanced Examples

Tagging a user by their ID and setting a preferred name. If the user’s full name isn’t found, it will display the preferred name.

[peepso_tag id=3]John Doe[/peepso_tag]
