Deploy Caspio DataPages in WordPress
A new and improved version of the Caspio WordPress plugin is available now at:
The Caspio Deploy2 plugin enables shortcode placeholders to streamline the deployment of Caspio applications on WordPress. In WordPress, a shortcode is a placeholder you add to a page or post that is replaced at runtime with custom content. In our new plugin, shortcodes can be used for SEO deployment, 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).
