When I first saw this question at WordPress answers which asks for a QR Code plugin suggestion i answered that a plugin is not really needed and posted a simple function to achieve that, little did i know that just a few weeks later a client will ask me to create this very plugin for him. so after the plugin was made for that client i customized it a bit and i give you Simple QR Code
What does it do?
This Plugin allows you add a QR Code to your posts/pages/custom using a simple shortcode and to your sidebars using a built-in widget.
How does it work?
- Very easy to use.
- TinyMCE button for easy shortcode insertion.
- Custom sizes
- Built-in Widget.
- Use as shortcode.
- Use as template tag for easy integration with your theme or plugin.
Download the latest Version from WordPress.org
Simple Installation steps:
- Extract the zip file and just drop the contents in the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation.
- Then activate the Plugin from Plugins page.
Simply create or edit post/page and click the newly added TinyMCE button (the one with the barcode icon) add fill that simple form. Alternatively you can insert the shortcode yourself for example:
[QR size="240x240" link="yes"]http://en.bainternet.info[/QR]
Widget – Once again the widget as a simple options panel which are easy to follow.
Template Tag – if you want to use it in a template file then just use
<?php echo do_shortcode('[QR size="240x240" link="yes"]http://en.bainternet.info[/QR]'); ?>
