How do I display a value in a post or page?

Use the shortcode [ekvalues_value key="your_key_name"] to display the value of a key anywhere shortcodes are supported.

Can I retrieve a value in my theme or plugin?

Yes, use <?php echo ekvalues_get_value('your_key_name'); ?> to retrieve and display a value within PHP. For hidden values, ensure proper access control is implemented.


These constants allow you to enable caching (EKVALUES_ENABLE_CACHE) for improved performance and customize the duration (EKVALUES_CACHE_DURATION) of the cache in seconds. Define these in your wp-config.php for advanced performance tuning.

How can I customize the admin menu placement?

Define the EKVALUES_MENU_LOCATION constant in your wp-config.php file. Setting it to “settings_menu” places the plugin’s menu under the ‘Settings’ section, offering a more integrated admin interface experience.
