LH Paragraph Ids


LH Paragraph Level IDs plugin adds an ‘id’ attribute to each paragraph tag in a blog post, giving the author and readers additional functionality.

So for example, <p> becomes <p id="lh_element_id-p-23463-3">.

There is also an optional feature to add a link to the paragraph at the end of the post, like this. ¶

These additions allow anyone to link directly to that paragraph in the post. This is useful for long tracts of text and is also useful for rdf and semantics (in that these technologies often require identification of parts of a page).

Requires wp_body_open

Note this plugin requires wordpress 5.2 and for your theme to support the wp_body_open hook (most good themes do).

How do I enable automatic paragraph links?

By default, automtic paragraph links are turned off, they can be turned on by a filter like this:

add_filter(‘lh_paragraph_ids_link_enabled’, function(){
//Do something with the content
return true;

Can you give me some examples of sites running this plugin?

The LocalHero project website and the Melbourne touch rugby association I founded both run on the same multisite that is powered by this plugin.

What is something does not work?

LH Paragraph Ids, and all LocalHero plugins are made to WordPress standards. Therefore they should work with all well coded plugins and themes. However not all plugins and themes are well coded (and this includes many popular ones).

If something does not work properly, firstly deactivate ALL other plugins and switch to one of the themes that come with core, e.g. twentyfirteen, twentysixteen etc.

If the problem persists please leave a post in the support forum: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/lh-paragraph-ids/. I look there regularly and resolve most queries.

What if I need a feature that is not in the plugin?
