RDV Category Image


RDV Category Image plugin allows you to add an image to a category, tag, or any custom taxonomies. Please review the code snippets below to display a category image on the category page template or any page or post.

  • Use template tag rdv_category_image_url(); with php echo function to get the category image url and then use it in an image tag.

    <?php if(function_exists('rdv_category_image_url')){ echo rdv_category_image_url(); } ?>
  • Use this template tag rdv_category_image(); in the category template file to display the category image directly.

    <?php if(function_exists('rdv_category_image')){ rdv_category_image(); } ?>
  • Use the shortcode in page or post or a page builder template to display a category image. The basic shortcode without attributes [rdv_category_image] will only work on the category template page to display a specific category image. Use shortcode attributes term_id and size to display a specific category image and size.

        [rdv_category_image term_id="10"]
        [rdv_category_image size="thumbnail"]
        [rdv_category_image term_id="10" size="thumbnail"]
