Secondary Title | Kolja Nolte | title


Secondary Title is a simple, light-weight plugin that adds an alternative title to posts, pages and/or custom post types which can be displayed automatically, with a shortcode or by using PHP.

The plugin comes with an extra settings page which allows you to customize the plugin according to your needs. You can change:

  • post types, categories and specific post IDs the secondary title will be
    shown on,
  • whether the secondary title should be automatically added to the standard title (Auto show),
  • the format both titles are being shown (only works when Auto show is activated),
  • the position where the secondary title input field should be displayed (above or below the standard title) within the admin interface (Classic Editor only),
  • whether the secondary title should only be displayed in the main post and not within widgets etc.,
  • if the secondary title should be usable in permalinks,
  • and even more.

Please see the official website for a full documentation.


Quick Installation

  1. Install Secondary Title either by searching for the plugin with WordPress’ native plugin installer found under PluginsAdd New or (download the plugin manually)[] and copy the secondary-title folder into the /wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation.
  2. Activate the plugin in the Plugins section of your admin interface.
  3. Go to SettingsSecondary Title to customize the plugin as desired.

IMPORTANT: If the Auto show option is set to Off, you have to use either

<?php echo get_secondary_title($post_id, $prefix, $suffix); ?>


<?php the_secondary_title($post_id, $prefix, $suffix); ?>

in your theme file(s) (e.g. single.php) where you would like the secondary title to be displayed.
