Simple Expand for WordPress

This plugin makes it easy to get an expandable text, or a read more functionality inside a post or page.

Expandable textThis is a small sample for how Simple Expand works.
Expandable text containing images

The inside text can also contain html, as

  • titles,
  • bold styles
  • and other html tags

that can be used in a normal post. It also work with Gutenberg.

The title is the text that always is show and the text wrapped inside the tags is shown when the title is pressed.

CSV and HTML search filter for WordPress

This is one of my WordPress plugins, made to add a simple ajax-search in html or in uploaded CSV-file.

The plugin has two shortcodes.

[csvsearch src='/path/file.csv']
[filtersearch search_element='table']


[csvsearch] is performing a search in an uploaded (or otherwise accessible) CSV-file. Use the format to set the output. use {0}, {1} etc for different columns in the file and {b}{/b}, {i}{/i} etc for simple formatting. Here is a sample with all arguments to use.


// url to uploaded file

// charset of file

// format the output
format='{b}{0}{/b}, {1}, {2}{br/}'

// format the output with link
format="{a href='{0}'}{1}{/a}"

// format the output with image
format="{img src='{0}' /}"

// search label

// format for output when instant search

// instant search enabled or not

// data ID format, i.e. what to put in data-id of the listed element.

// change the item separator depending on type of csv file used

// change the nothing found message
nothing_found_message='Nothing found when searching for: '

// If true, the shortcode will only find exact matches, case sensitive. Default false.

// Add text where search-result will be placed. Default none.
placeholder_text='Place some default text before searching.'

// If you only want to search in one specific column you can specify this. If you only want to search in the first column you enter 0 here. Remove this argument or add -1 to search in all columns.


[filtersearch] does a filter inside current html page. Specify which element you want to search within. You cah use either element type, .class_name of #id. See sample below for more arguments that can be used.


// what DOM element to search in, use element type, .class_name or #id

// show table header or not when filtering

// filter heading 
text='Page filter'

// class to style clear icon

// clear filter text

// enable or disable to set focus in filter input element on page load

Live samples using the plugin

Use this [filtersearch] shortcode

[filtersearch search_element='#name_table' text='Filter name in table' show_header_in_table=true clear_text='Clear filter' set_focus_on_load=false]

which enables this filter

Filter name in tableclear filter

on this table (with id name_table)

First nameLast name

Use this [csvsearch] shortcode

[csvsearch src='/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/sample.csv' searchtext='Search in file' format='{b}{0} {1}{/b} {2} - {3}{br/}' nothing_found_message='No hits for: ']

to show this search

for a search in this csv-sample-file. Try searching for a name (I’m using the same sampel names as in the table above) or a favorite color (pink, blue, red, …) or lucky number (3, 6, 7, …) to see the results.
