Shortcodes is a great way to use php-functions in your posts and pages. You can also use it for styling your content, for example [b]Bold text[/b].
As WordPress doesn’t allow code in posts and pages, shortcodes is a good way to implement php-functions in your content.
There are three different kinds of shortcodes:
[myshortcode]– Simple shortcode.
[myshortcode id="5"]– Shortcode with parameter.
[myshortcode]Hello World![/myshortcode]– Shortcode goes BB Code.
