This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



Nooz simplifies management of your press releases and press coverage content. It adds custom post types along with carefully crafted settings, giving you the flexibility needed to manage your corporate news section.

The plugin exposes the [nooz] shortcode allowing you to insert press release and press coverage lists on any of your pages.

Is it compatible with my theme/template?

Press releases and press coverage are created as post types and behave as such. This means that you can use all of the standard WordPress functionality to include posts into your templates. Additionally, the [nooz] shortcode allows you to insert press release and press coverage lists on any of your pages (see Nooz Settings > Help > Shortcode Usage).

Is the plugin available in my language?

It might be, check the «nooz/languages» folder to see if a translation is already available for your locale. You can use the included POT file to create a new translation for your region. Read more about WordPress Localization.

Is WordPress Multisite Supported?

We have not done much testing with the plugin on WordPress Multisite. We are doing our best to develop within the WordPress API.

I had trouble customising the press coverage page and the help I received was great! This plugin is easy to use and very flexible. I would recommend it.

I am SO glad I found this plugin to make adding press coverages AND releases super quick and easy. Also, from the looks of it, the devs are quite helpful with regards to support and open to ideas. I look forward to seeing what’s ahead with this plugin!

Versatyle Design has a need to develop news pages for many of our clients› websites. Each client has unique needs and directives as they try to reach a public audience. Nooz is a wonderful solution that is easy to use, flexible, and has plenty of options for our clients as they maintain their content and market their companies. It works really well.
