Shortcoder – [ shortcoder]
[ shortcoder id="myname" v1="optional-replacement" ... v9="replacement"]
The shortcode allows you to define your own named shortcodes. These really serve as “macros” – an easy way to define constant text or other fixed content you would like to add to your pages, posts, or widget areas. The content you define can include other shortcodes and basic HTML, as well as Raw HTML or Scripts if you have the role permissions to do that.
[ shortcoder] supports nine (9) optional parameters, v1 to v9, that allow you to pass values to your shortcode definition text. The value of any parameter will replace the equivalent parameter specified as %v1% in your text. For example, if you had a shortcode “name” and definition text contained “My name is %v1%.”, and you use the shortcode [ shortcoder id=”name” v1=”Bruce”], the output included in your content would be “My name is Bruce.” This allows you to use the same shortcode in different pages or posts and supply variable content.
Shortcode ID: link
Shortcode definition: More information available <a href=”%v1%”>here</a>.
Usage (from a post, for example):
This is an simple example. [ shortcoder id=”link” v1=”http://example.com/info.html”] Check it out.
Another great use for [ shortcoder] is to easily include scripts provided by outside services. For example, if you have a Twitter account, you can login to your Twitter account and go to the http://twitter.com/about/resources page. There you will find tools to generate follow buttons, widgets, and more.
