I want to show some short description in the All post_type view of a custom post type in the WordPress Admin Dashboard.

For example:

For this custom post type, my shortcode is this [shortcode].

Is there any way to show this before all posts?

  • Your question isn't clear. The title says "how can I show shortcode description" but in your description, it says "I want to show some short description". Which one is correct? Wanna show a short description or shortcode description? – obiPlabon Jul 18 '18 at 9:52

The filter views_{$this->screen->id} is fired just after the title of post edit screen has been print to screen, so it's a safe place to just echo what you want.

So you can simply check here:

function post_type_desc( $views ){    
    printf('<h4>%s</h4>', __('Your description here.') ); // echo 
    return $views; // return original input unchanged
add_filter("views_edit-POST_TYPE_HERE", 'post_type_desc');

Replace your_post_type here in POST_TYPE_HERE.

Hope this will help you.

  • where i will put post type, $post_type = get_post_type_object($screen->post_type); – Nayeem Hyder Riddhi Jul 18 '18 at 10:29
  • You can replace your post_type_name in "POST_TYPE_HERE" it in the add_filter () – Baikare Sandeep Jul 18 '18 at 10:32
