DPS Default Image

When using Display Posts Shortcode, this code snippet will let you specify a default image to use like this:

[display-posts image_size="thumbnail" default_image="123"]

Where “123” is the ID of the image you’d like to use as your default.

/** * DPS default image * @link https://www.billerickson.net/code/dps-default-image/ */ function be_dps_default_image( $output, $original_atts, $image, $title, $date, $excerpt, $inner_wrapper, $content, $class, $author, $category_display_text ) { if( !empty( $original_atts['image_size'] ) && !empty( $original_atts['default_image'] ) && empty( $image ) ) { $default_image_id = intval( $original_atts['default_image'] ); if ( $original_atts['include_link'] ) { $image = '<a class="image" href="' . get_permalink() . '">' . wp_get_attachment_image( $default_image_id, $original_atts['image_size'] ) . '</a> '; } else { $image = '<span class="image">' . wp_get_attachment_image( $default_image_id, $original_atts['image_size'] ) . '</span> '; } if( !empty( $image ) ) $output = '<' . $inner_wrapper . ' class="' . implode( ' ', $class ) . '">' . $image . $title . $date . $author . $category_display_text . $excerpt . $content . '</' . $inner_wrapper . '>'; } return $output; } add_filter( 'display_posts_shortcode_output', 'be_dps_default_image', 10, 11 );
