Please I am searching for a plugin I can use to source posts. Like after my posts,just below the share buttons. I want something that can display. Source: (origin site). That is the site I got the post from.

If u open any post. Below u will find source: and the lik to the original site. That's what I want.

I'm not aware of any plugins that can do this but it should be pretty easy to write the code into your theme to do this.

Wish I could help. Easy doesn't necessarily mean it won't take time to write the code. Maybe the developer of your theme has something already written up. Have you tried contacting them?

Take a look into some of the author tools in the wp plugin repository. If you setup a user profile for your authors, you can use WordPress hooks to call the data into an author type box under the posts.

Wordpress author codex [codex.wordpress.org]

This sounds like a perfect use of Custom Fields, see the wordpress docs here: [codex.wordpress.org...]

You'd probably need to get a bit more into the code than just using the_meta() function as explained on that page, but you could do something like:


<div class='source'>
<span class='source-title'>Source: </span><span><?php echo get_post_meta(get_the_ID(), "Source", true)' ?></span>
</div>


This code would go at the bottom of the loop in your template code, see: [codex.wordpress.org...]
