Caspio Deploy2 Plugin Published

A new WordPress plugin for integration with the Caspio online database is now available at:

I reviewed the previous plugin the company had published and was able to recommend a better way of implementing it, using WordPress shortcodes. Here’s a summary:

Caspio is an online database featuring web-based tools for designing database tables, forms, reports, charts and graphs, and more complicated applications like store locators with Google Maps mashups. Applications can be created without programming, and embedding them in your website is as easy as copying and pasting a code snippet.

The Caspio Deploy2 plugin enables ShortCode placeholders that further streamline the deployment of Caspio applications. The shortcodes can be used for SEO deployment of content, as well as embedding the AJAX widget used to display Caspio forms. Caspio Deploy2 replaces the earlier Caspio Deployment Control plugin (which did not use shortcodes).

The [caspio] shortcode can be wrapped around the standard block of code generated by Caspio Bridge for SEO Deployment. You should toggle from the Visual to HTML mode of the WordPress editor before pasting in the block of code, but it will work even if you paste the code into the Visual editor.

<!– Begin Caspio Deploy Code (for inserting in body) –>
<?php require_once(‘’);dpload(‘’,’5F422000c3f2d8h4d3c9f4b9g9e0′,’l’);?>
<!– End Caspio Deploy Code –>
Alternatively, you can cut out everything except the parameters for the dpload function (make sure to include the quotes around each parameter):

Or the parameters from the dpload function can be embedded in the shortcode tag as follows:
[caspio url=”” key=”5F422000c3f2d8h4d3c9f4b9g9e0″ style=”l”]
For Caspio application deployment in embedded mode, you can use this shortcode placeholder which will be replaced at runtime with the standard Caspio JavaScript widget. This lets you avoid having the JavaScript code scrambled by the WordPress editor in Visual mode.

In order to deploy Caspio Bridge SEO DataPage in WordPress, you must have:

  • Caspio Bridge account with activated SEO deployment and properly configured DataPage
  • Installed and activated the Caspio Deploy2 plugin for WordPress.
