WordPress ShortCodes

WordPress is a fantastic CMS / Blog tool. Every time I am asked to customize wordpress I am amazed at how easy it is to implement. One of the great features I have found in wordpress is shortcodes.

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.

Here is an example of a shortcode entry for a big button this site.
[button type=”big” color=”orange”]Big Large Button [/button]
