WPH Breaking News


This plugin appends “[Breaking News]” to your post title for a selected time range. That’s all!


When you want to announce “breaking news” on your WordPress sites, generally adding “[Breaking …]” expression to post title than a few hours later you need to update again.
That’s ok, but generally you forgot to update permalink and this is our first problem.

Second, permalinks should be permanent!
This is good for SEO and social sharing.


  • English (en_US), built-in
  • Turkish (tr_TR), native support


  • Post metabox for configure status and time.


Extract the zip file and just drop the contents in the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation and then activate the Plugin from admin’s Plugins page.
