Documentation: Shortcodes

Shortcode background and usages

Note: delete or make this page private before the site is live.

  • Listing of shortcodes outlined with examples below.
  • Where possible, we use parameters/attributes within the shortcode so one shortcode can be used in different scenarios or for different post types.
  • Shortcodes should all be kept in the theme/includes/custom-shortcodes.php file or they will be FacetWP shortcodes
  • Shortcodes and parameters use WP_Query. Additional information on basic functions i.e. order, orderby, etc can be found in WordPress Codex
