Shortcoder, A Macro Of A Difference
Once discovered this is one WordPress plugin you won’t want to be without.
WordPress has shortcodes built in, shortcode extension plugins and for this post, plugins that let you create your own shortcodes. There are a number of plugins that do this but the one I am using and the one I am going to talk about is this one “Shortcoder“.
What Is A Shortcode?
A shortcode is a “Macro” so I guess the question really is, what is a macro?
A shortcode or macro is a place holder that can be replaced by something else such as a sentence, a block of code or some paragraphs. Not only can you substitute them but you can send parameters or if you like values from the macro to that which substitutes it.
