WordPress shortcodes give the ability to insert certain feature anywhere in your website. Announcer – PRO plugin supports shortcodes which you can use to place the announcement anywhere as needed.
By default the announcement can be added to the top/bottom of the window using the settings page.
In case you want to insert the same announcement inside a post/page then you can copy the shortcode and paste the shortcode wherever needed.
When using shortcodes the properties of the announcement cannot be modified or new announcement cannot be created. The announcement shortcode is used to insert an already created announcement using the admin page anywhere.
When you want to use an announcement only using shortcode, then you can set Location rules > Hide in all pages. Now you can use the shortcode anywhere as needed without it being automatically displayed.
The syntax of the announcer is as follows.
The shortcode only accepts the
id as a parameter where the ID of the announcement should be passed.
You can pass this shortcode to the WordPress function
do_shortcode in case you want to insert it directly in the theme template file.
