The new version of WP Get Personal is ready and you’re the first to get it! We’ve taken on board all your fantastic ideas and we’ve managed to include the following features in this version:
- Support for both posts and pages
- Support for the “get personal” page as homepage
- A 30 day cookie will remember the contact details
- For logged in users the shortcode value is stored in the user meta data, effectively making it permanent (e.g. for membership sites)
- Multiple sections (e.g. first name, surname, company name, friend’s name)
- Shortcode renders in page title (and therefore also in menu items!)
- better compatibility with other plugins & themes
- better performance for bigger sites
- better security
- uninstall deletes WP Get Personal settings
Installation and configuration

- Use the shortcode Friend where you’d like the contact name to appear
