Global Messages

crp-global-messagesGlobal Messages are one of the best parts of WP Content Resharer Pro.  You can create as many custom messages as you need. When editing the message, you will see a preview that shows an preview example of the reshare content. Global Messages are optional and the plugin will post to the social networks regardless of whether any have been set.

Global Messages are default messages that will be applied to EVERY eligible post. They allow you to have custom syntax to ensure your posting remains unique across the channels since the plugin will loop through all eligible content. This sophisticated feature helps remix the messages shared across social networks. Below is an example of a Global Message that can be edited through the admin dashboard.


The options found under Messages tab include:

  • Message Name – a unique name for personal reference to identify the global message
  • Message Text – any text string that you’d like to add to the message of eligible posts
  • Reshare Structure – the order or structure of the message (feel free to remix!)
  • Message Preview – provides a visual of what the message would potentially look like when posted across social networks

Custom Messages per Post

Custom Messages take customization to the highest level. While Global Messages are used across every eligible post, Custom Messages (per post) are specific messages to be used when resharing an individual post. You can define these on a per-post basis giving more uniqueness to your content sharing on social networks. Robots are awesome BUT you want personality on social networks! Content Resharer Pro was designed to make your content sharing extremely human-like. Compliment this plugin with some of your own personalized tweets and watch the traffic drastically increase.

You can find the Custom Messages meta panel on the Edit Post screen. If you cannot see it, simply navigate to the top right hand corner and click “Screen Options”, and then enable the checkbox next to Custom Messages.

Below is a screenshot of the Custom Messages meta panel:


Within this meta panel, you can REMOVE specific global messages for the post, as well as ADD a new Custom Message only for that post. POWER AT YOUR FINGERTIPS!!!

Exclude Posts


The exclude posts page allows you to select which posts should never be shared by Content Resharer Pro.  This is where you should exclude your content that is not evergreen if you want your shares to be relevant at all times.
