Single Post Message For WordPress is a plugin for easily adding short messages in the top of your posts and displaying them in both the browser and in RSS feeds.
I started working on this plugin a couple of weeks ago and have been dogfooding it throughout development – here’s an example of the plugin in action.
Generally speaking, the plugin came out of a need for me to place short notes above post content and I wanted it to look the same in both the browser as well as RSS feeds.
It’s a simple plugin, but here’s what it offers:
- The post message editor is added directly under the post content editor on the Add New Post and the Edit Post pages
- A live preview of how the message will look to your readers
- Support for HTML tags
- Full localization for international languages
Over time, I’d love to include additional features specifically for bloggers who find this useful, but this is a strong 1.0: it includes only the base functionality and nothing more.
For those that are interested, I also shared a few notes on my development process for this plugin.
