- Create “custom shortcodes” easily and use them within WordPress
- Use any name for the created shortcode (ex:
- Use any kind of HTML as Shortcode content.
- Parameters can also added to HTML (ex:
<strong>%%mytext%%</strong> [sc name="testing" mytext="hello"])
- Visual editor for adding shortcode contents.
- Global tinyMCE button available in the editing toolbar for inserting created shortcodes.
- Globally disable the shortcode when not needed.
- Can disable the shortcode, showing it to admins.
An example usage
- Create a shortcode named "adsenseAd" in the Shortcoder admin page.
- Paste the adsense code in the box given and save it.
[sc name="adsenseAd"]in your posts and pages.
- Tada !!! the ad appears in the post.
- Using this idea, shortcodes can be created for frequently used snippets.
- You can also add parameters (like %%id%%) inside the snippets, and vary it like
[sc name="youtube" id="GrlRADfvjII"]
- This plugin will be hugely useful to all !!
Installation and Usage
- Extract the zipped file and upload the folder Shortcoder to /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
- Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress.
- Go to the "Shortcoder" admin page. Admin page is under the Settings menu.
- Enter a shortcode name.
- Paste some code in it.
- Then use the shortcode [sc name”name of the shortcode”] in your post. ex: If “youtube” is the shortcode name, then just use [sc name=”youtube”] in your posts
- That’s all !
