What Is A Shortcode?

“A shortcode is a WordPress-specific code that lets you do nifty things with very little effort. Shortcodes can embed files or create objects that would normally require lots of complicated, ugly code in just one line. Shortcode = shortcut.” –

“Shortcodes in WordPress are little bits of code that allow you to do various things with little effort. They were introduced in WordPress 2.5, and the reason to introduce them was to allow people to execute code inside WordPress posts, pages, and widgets without writing any code directly. This allows you to embed files or create objects that would normally require a lot of code in just one single line.” –

How To Use A Shortcode?

A shortcode is wrapped in brackets ([]). Most shortcodes have an opening and a closing shortcode. The opening shortcode will have the brackets surrounding it. The closing shortcode will have the brackets, but will also have a “/” in it as the first character inside of the brackets. Here is an example button shortcode.
The above shortcode has the opening shortcode, [intense_button], and the closing shortcode, [/intense_button]. The text “Button” in the middle is the text on the button.

Shortcodes will typically have additional options available that allow the user to tailor the result to their liking. If we use the example above and we want to change the size and color of the button and add an icon, the shortcode might look like the following.

[intense_button size=”large” color=”success” icon=”heart”]Button[/intense_button]
