I use BB + Themer. I would like to use a shortcode to pull the title and content from a post with the ID ‘xy’ into different fields of a plugin (or let’s simply say the HTML module, will work if that works). I’ve been reading the articles about field connections and shortcodes in BB over and over again, I tried [wpbb post:title] and [wpbb post:title id=‘xy’] and lots of other combinations, no success. It gives me the title of the page, not of the post. Can this be done with a shortcode at all?
Thanks a lot in advance
Not sure it’s supported by Themer, try Custom Content Shortcode (free plugin):
E.g. if you want to output a specific post title (id “123”):
[content type=post id=123 field=title]
Don’t think that’s supported as Themer is all about the “current” view.
Sometimes it helps to have a bit more information about the use case
Thanks a lot Avanti, it works as you proposed!
If there is a solution within BB+BT, I’m happy to learn about it, but this solves my issue for now.
Thanks for the reply. The idea was that the field connections of Beaver Themer would allow to pull content from a post into wherever you need it (headers, module elements, etc.). But I guess it does not work for specific posts via ID, rather a connection to fields of posts in general. But the workaround with the Custom Content plugin does the trick.
