Humans Dot Txt


This plugin will add a dynamic humans.txt file generated from a template that you’ll define yourself. What’s humans.txt? It’s the latest thing on the web:

It uses a template format which you can define yourself to add the information you’d like to your humans.txt file. This plugin currently supports the following template tags:

  • Active plugins (name, uri, version, description, author, author uri)
  • Blog authors (login name, display name, email)
  • PHP version
  • WP version
  • Current theme (name, description, author, author uri, version, parent)
  • Number of posts (published, future, drafts, pending, private)
  • Number of pages (published, future, drafts, pending, private)

It’s pretty easy to extend these template tags with new ones if you’re missing someone. Just leave a message and I’ll try to fix it for you.


I love getting feedback from people using my stuff, if you use it and feel like saying hello, leave a suggestion, complaint or whatever, just drop a message wherever you feel like.

Plugin integration

If you feel like there’s more information you’d like to add from your plugin, you can use the filter ‘humans_output’ to append your own information to the humans.txt file. But if you do, please be a good plugin developer and ask the user if it’s ok first!

A simple example:

function myFilter($a) {
  return $a . "My plugin is activated and very cool!";

add_filter('humans_output', 'myFilter');


This is the same procedure as with all ordinary plugins.

  1. Download the zip file, unzip it
  2. Upload it to your /wp-content/plugins/ folder
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  4. Go to the ‘Humans dot txt’ configuration menu to define your template
  5. Head over to and behold the awesome result!


This is a new plugin, haven’t had any questions yet. If you have any, be sure to send them to me.
