DNS Ipsum – Due North Studios Lorem Ipsum Generator


The Due North Studios Lorem Ipsum generator allows you to use a shortcode to generate between 1 to 20 paragraphs of lorem ipsum text. This is a great plugin to have installed while developing a site, as lorem ipsum text can help you visualize how the page will look with text before you have any final content.

The plugin will allow you to use the [dns-ipsum] shortcode in the content area of posts, pages or custom content types. The plugin also adds a button to TinyMCE which allows you to easily add the shortcode to the content area.

A brief Markdown Example

[dns-ipsum] | will add 5 paragraphs of lorem ipsum text

what | [dns-ipsum what=”paras”] | either paragraphs (paras), words, bytes or lists
amount | [dns-ipsum amount=”5″ ] | the number of what (paragraphs, words, etc.) to add
start | [dns-ipsum start=”1″] | whether to start the text with lorem ipsum (1) or not (0)


A big thank you to for providing a lorem ipsum XML feed
