A plugin to generate shortcodes and a corresponding button in the WordPress visual editor. Wicked!
Adding shortcodes to the Visual Editor can be a pain in the buttocks. Not anymore. Now, you can add shortcodes and a button to the editor as simply as using an array and this plugin. How neat is that?
Note: This plugin requires at LEAST PHP 5.3. If you’re not sure what version of PHP you’re using, consult your host.
shortcodes-generator.zip to the
/wp-content/plugins/ directory and unzip it
2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
3. Drag the
shortcodes folder inside
shortcodes-generator to the root of your theme
4. Create your shortcode via arrays. For more details, check out the FAQ, or visit [the plugin site.](http://fightthecurrent.org/plugins/shortcodes-generator)
5. That’s it! Enjoy!
Frequently Asked Questions
So how do I add the shortcodes, anyway?
Well, after you’ve moved the
shortcodes folder to your theme, open up
shortcodes/array.php. The simplest one you can make would look like this:
$shortcodes['button'] = array(
'shortcode' => 'button'
That would create a shortcode that looks like this:
If you want to define some default parameters, just change params to this:
'params' => array(
'class' => 'small',
'color' => 'green'
It will produce this output:
Want to be able to select text and have the shortcode wrap around it? Just pass
'selectable' => 1.
I will eventually add a ThickBox dialogue so that people can have default selections picked out for them, and actually have more of a UI. But this will do for now.
