Sewn In Post Delete


Adds a shortcode and action to add a “Delete Post” link to posts so user’s can delete them. By default it requires the user to have the “delete_post” capability for the post in question, but if you want anarchy, you can customize that all the way to loggedin or even public…


[sewn_post_delete_link] // Loads current post for editing

[sewn_post_delete_link text="Bye bye post" before="" after="" title="" class=""] // Will change the link text to "Bye bye post"


These are the same arguments for in template action below.

text = link text
before = html to show before the link
after = html to show after the link
title = the link title, defaults to link text
class = extra classes to add to the link


This will show the link to users have the ability to use it.


do_action('sewn/post_delete/link', array('text'=>"Bye bye post", 'before'=>'', 'after'=>'', title=>'', 'class'=>''));
