Mastering WP Slimstat Shortcodes

WP Slimstat shortcodes allow you to track and display various statistics on your WordPress site. Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced user, understanding these shortcodes can help you effectively monitor your site’s performance.

Structure of WP Slimstat Shortcodes

A generic WP Slimstat shortcode looks like this:

[slimstat f='criteria' w='dimension|widget_id' s='separator' o='offset']condition[/slimstat]
  • f: The function you want to perform (e.g., count, top items, widget display).
  • w: Specifies the data dimension or widget ID.
  • s: Separator for lists (optional, default is empty).
  • o: Offset for counters (optional).

Creating a Shortcode: Step-by-Step

Example: Counting page views of a post with “welcome” in the permalink.

  1. Function (f): Choose count for counting page views.
  2. Dimension (w): Select id for page views.
  3. Condition: Write your condition between the shortcode tags. For our example: post_link contains welcome.

Complete Shortcode:

[slimstat f='count' w='id']post_link contains welcome[/slimstat]
