The OgreCore plugin provides a core set of tools and functionality to WordPress. It is required and intended for WordPress themes built within or as a child of the OgreTemplate theme. Out of the box, this plugin provides support for the following:

  • Error message handling
  • Login page customization settings (logo and color scheme)
  • Advanced site-wide schema configuration
  • Simple shortcodes (search-form, date, & bloginfo)
  • Extra Gutenberg blocks including Address, Post, Posts, and Scheduled

More features can be unlocked as needed by using the “ogre/packages” PHP filter. Notably including the following:

  • Social sharing post links
  • Featured post support
  • Ajax post queries
  • Post & taxonomy sorting
  • Embedded video API functionality (for use with YouTube, Vimeo, and Wistia)
  • Simple admin option field handlers

Most of this functionality requires theme support to work as intended and will not work out of the box. Please contact our team if you require assistance or any further inquiry.


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/OgreCore directory to ensure that it is active.
