What’s a shortcode?

A shortcode combines a number of computer commands into one, simple term that can be used in any textbox that looks like the one above.

To use most shortcodes, think bookends. You need them on both sides.

The left side introduces the shortcode in between two straight brackets: [shortcode-here]

The right side ends the shortcode with a forward slash: [/shortcode-here]

Some shortcodes allow you to add additional styling features which are included inside the left-side bracket: [shortcode-here size=medium]

Available Shortcodes

Always place shortcode names inside brackets [shortcode-here]

Adding a button

Words Go Here

Shortcode: [ button size= ]Words Go Here[/shortcode]

(Note, don’t add a space after the bracket as shown above. This was done so you can see the shortcode itself.)

Action: Creates a bold button with the words in the middle.
Options: large, medium, or small
See example above

To link the words, highlight the words in between the brackets, then click the Chain Link icon in the style ribbon above.
