The WordPress shortcode generator was the first tool in Coveloping's WordPress range dedicated to helping you generate code for your WordPress site.
This tool allows you to easily create all the code you need to create a shortcode to use on your WordPress site.
WordPress shortcodes were introduced in WordPress version 2.5 and is a great way of adding full flexibility and control of certain functionality to the editor of your WordPress CMS. The best thing about shortcodes is that it allows editors to run a certain bit of code within the content area of your site. Having the ability of adding shortcodes means that the editor can also select the position to place this bit of content.
The WordPress Shortcode Generator allows you to easily create all the code you need to create a shortcode to use on your WordPress site.

When the shortcode runs it will have access to these attributes as variables in your code. Using the shortcode generator you can add as many attributes as you want to the shortcode.
The next section allows you to enter your PHP code which will run where the shortcode is placed in the content.
You can either use this tool to create your own WordPress shortcodes or you can select one of the template shortcodes to use in your WordPress projects. You can select one of the following:
