  • This is a vehicle post archive showing post title, full size featured image, price, vehicle attribute table, carfax button, and link to vehicle post single.
  • This is an inventory grid showing featured image thumbnails and post titles. A full inventory link takes users to the vehicle post archive.
  • This is a list of vehicles in the administrator dashboard that the user sees when she clicks the Vehicles or All Vehicles menu items. Each vehicle is listed by year, make, model, trim, stock number, color, odometer, price, and photo count. If the vehicle has photos, a thumbnail is also shown. This screen shot was taken on version 3.1.0.
  • This is the edit screen that adds or edits a single vehicle. The post content box is demoted to handle only the sentence-form vehicle description, and the entire edit screen is enhanced to support vehicle attributes. This screen shot was taken on version 3.1.0.
  • This screenshot shows a vehicle post in the WordPress block editor. An editor sidebar for the Inventory Presser plugin is expanded and contains vehicle attribute fields. An arrow points to a button with a key on it that reveals the editor sidebar.
  • This screenshot shows a vehicle archive on the Twenty Twenty theme before any customization.

Istoric modificări


  • [Added] Adds a setting Provide Templates at Vehicles > Options. Lets users toggle the provided templates for archive and single vehicles.
  • [Added] Adds WS Form to the list of recognized form builders in the Singles Contact Form setting.
  • [Fixed] Bug fix. Fixes the Add Listings Page button in the settings. This button stopped adding a new row to the Listings Pages table in 14.14.0.
  • [Changed] Edits WP All Import integration to detect semicolon as an option delimiter in addition to pipes and commas.
  • [Changed] Changes tested up to version number to 6.5.5.


  • [Fixed] Adds a meta noindex nofollow tag to inventory archives that are filtered by 2 or more of our taxonomies. Prevent /inventory/make/toyota/make/lexus/fuel/gas/ from being indexed or followed by bots.
  • [Fixed] Bug fix. Register scripts in the dashboard. The location taxonomy add phone and add hours buttons were broken because the script powering them stopped loading.
  • [Fixed] Bug fix. Restores VIN to vehicle attribute table. VIN was erroneously removed in 14.14.0.


  • [Added] Adds a setting „Singles Contact Form” at Vehicles Options to embed a lead form on vehicle single pages. Supports Contact Form 7, Gravity Forms, and WP Forms.
  • [Added] Adds „make” and „model” attributes to the Inventory Grid and Inventory Slider.
  • [Added] Changes the „Show All Taxonomies” option to a „Manage Taxonomies” button that leads to another options page. Users can now toggle which taxonomies are active, show in the admin menu, and display in editors for each vehicle type. This makes the plugin much more friendly to boat dealers and anyone managing vehicles that are not passenger cars.
  • [Added] Adds better support for the Classic Editor.
  • [Added] Adds more boat fields for condition, draft, number of engines, engine make, engine model, and horsepower.
  • [Added] Adds template tags for boats including invp_is_boat(), invp_get_the_condition_boat(), invp_get_the_draft(), invp_get_the_engine_count(), invp_get_the_engine_make(), invp_get_the_engine_model(), and invp_get_the_horsepower().
  • [Fixed] Stops showing an admin notice on this plugin’s settings page. Adds the information to the Site Health page under the Tools menu instead.
  • [Fixed] Makes more strings translateable, including default boat styles and hull materials.
  • [Fixed] Bug fix. Prevent invp_get_the_photos() from returning a list of urls containing empty strings. Vehicles with broken images would prevent the flexslider from starting on details pages.
  • [Changed] Stops removing the odometer field from the vehicle attribute table for boats.
  • [Changed] Changes the fields for boats in the attribute table shortcode, and therefore the default archive and single templates.


  • [Added] Updates WP All Import integration to detect comma-delimited options. Previously, only pipe-delimited options were split into the meta field during imports.
  • [Fixed] Fixes a bug in the „hours today” sentence. Stops using the PHP function jddayofweek().


  • [Fixed] Fixes a bug introduced in 14.12.6 that broke this plugin’s Block Editor sidebar.


  • [Added] Adds an ID parameter to the [invp_photo_slider] shortcode so it can be used on any page.
  • [Fixed] Fixes a bug that caused an intermittent error in the Block editor „Updating failed. The response is not a valid JSON response.”
  • [Fixed] Stops showing the Vehicles admin bar item to logged in users who cannot edit posts.
  • [Fixed] Fixes bugs in the [invp_inventory_slider] shortcode so it operates more closely like the widget. Adds a showcount parameter
  • [Fixed] Fixes a bug that redirected 404 vehicle requests in the dashboard to the front end error page instead of the empty posts list.
  • [Changed] Changes tested up to version to 6.5.2.


  • [Added] Adds support for marking vehicles „Sale pending”. Adds a term to the Availability taxonomy during plugin activation. Adds a template tag invp_is_pending(). Shows „Sale pending” instead of any price.
  • [Fixed] Removes valid html title opening tags from readme.txt and changelog.txt. These files can more easily be more easily embedded in web pages.
  • [Changed] Changes tested up to version to 6.5.0.


  • [Fixed] Optimizes the way sliders are resized when the browser window is resized.
  • [Fixed] Fixes a bug when prefixing taxonomy term URLs with /inventory to avoid extraneous database queries. This was breaking the menu administration page.

  • [Fixed] Fixes a CSS bug in the inventory grid shortcode and widget.
  • [Fixed] Fixes a bug causing duplicate search results since 14.12.2.


  • [Fixed] Fixes a bug in the photo rearranger Gallery Block when comparing photo numbers.
  • [Fixed] Fixes a bug when saving vehicles to prevent duplicate meta values for meta registered as singles.
  • [Fixed] Fixes a bug where all search queries sitewide were joined to the taxonomy term tables. Vehicle data in terms is mirrored in post meta, so this was no longer necessary.
  • [Fixed] Fixes a JavaScript bug when loading photo sliders on vehicle singles where the vehicle only has one photo and a carousel is not displayed.
  • [Removed] Stops adding a querystring containing the photo hash to photo link URLs.


  • [Fixed] Fixes a bug introduced in 14.12.0 in the Grid widget when Show Captions is enabled.
