SCF Dummy Content


I hate wasting time adding dummy content to a theme.

SCF Dummy Content quickly populates a site with dummy titles, content and featured images. It can create posts, pages, custom post types and terms for registered taxonomies.

I appreciate your comments and any ideas for improvement!


  • Fresh WordPress install before SCF Dummy Content plugin is executed.
  • Fresh WordPress install after SCF Dummy Content plugin is executed.


  1. Unzip and Upload all files in to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Go the the Options page to customize the dummy content


Can I upload my own images

Yes you can. In the options page there is an image uploader just for that.
