You can add a subtitle i.e. secondary title to your posts, pages, and custom post types. By default, WordPress doesn’t provide you with this feature but still you have it on your WordPress Website. This lesson will guide you on how you can add a secondary title to your posts and other content.
Secondary Title is a free plugin that enables a subtitle title field for posts, pages, and other post types in WordPress.
Unlike to other subtitle plugins, it prefixes or suffixes secondary title with the main post title which looks something like this: “This is my first blog post: Hello World!”. You can either use this functionality sitewide or enable it selectively over post types, categories, or only on some individual posts.
To enable the functionality of the secondary title, navigate to Plugins -> Add New page to find and install the Secondary Title plugin. After activation, the plugin adds a new title field below the main title fields on post-edit pages.
It offers you a set of options you can manage from your admin area Settings -> Secondary Title page. On the settings page, you can select the post types where you want the secondary titles to be activated. You may select none if you want to use it on all available post types.
The plugin also allows you to select categories to enable secondary titles. Here also, select none to include all available categories. You can also limit secondary title functionality for certain posts and pages by adding their IDs to the post IDs box.
The default format for title and secondary title is %secondary_title%: %title% which shows a prefixed secondary post title on the main post title but you can change this format by interchanging the locations of variables and using your own heading tags in between. Simply use
%title% for the main title and
%secondary_title% for the secondary title.
