Any Ipsum


If you’ve ever had an idea for your own custom lorem ipsum generator (like Bacon Ipsum), this plugin will allow you to do so without any coding. Just fill in a list of words, drop
the [anyipsum-form] shortcode in a post or page, and you have your very own custom ipsum generator. Forked from Bacon Ipsum


  • [anyipsum-form] shortcode for end-users to use, fully configurable
  • custom words and filler text
  • API (returns JSON, HTML or plain text)
  • oEmbed support
  • WP-CLI support via the ‘wp any-ipsum’ command

The plugin installs Bacon Ipsum filler by default, so be sure to check Settings/Any Ipsum to fully customize your ipsum.


  • Configure your custom ipsum
  • Sample form
  • Sample output


  1. Upload the wp-any-ipsum directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Place the [anyipsum-form] shortcode in a page or post
  4. Check Settings/Any Ipsum to fully customize your ipsum
