This page outlines all possible shortcodes and options for the BePro Listings wordpress plugin. It also shows the shortcodes for all add-ons. If you are new to the concept of wordpress and shortcodes, check out the wordpress documentation

– http://codex.wordpress.org/Shortcode

WHAT ARE SHORTCODES?

The wordpress cms allows you to mix unique strings with your content. These unique strings trigger features. The features that are triggered are dictated to the plugins or php functions which created the unique strings

You see, wordpress created the possibility to use these unique strings. The plugins decide exactly what that string is, and what reactions happen, when its encountered on a blog page or in a post. It could be anything from creating a gallery to inputting a tracking code. The only thing that wordpress requires, is that shortcodes always start with a left bracket “[“ and end with a right one “]”. The sting in-between is up to the plugin / function developers

Shortcodes usually have options. This page outlines the unique strings associated with BePro Listings and the options which can be used to customize the attached reaction. So for example, one of our popular shortcodes is our “All In One” shortcode. It is so named since it triggers several features at the same time, google maps, categories, directory listings, etc. It looks like this

 [bl_all_in_one] 

It has a few options which are outlined in the documentation below. However for the same of a simple example, the following unique string, will select a different layout of features for bepro listings

 [bl_all_in_one l_type="a3"] 

This is still a valid use of the unique string “bl_all_in_one”. However, it is now configured to work differently

SHORTCODE BUILDER

We understand that not every user will find shortcodes easy. So we have implemented a FREE shortcode builder to help you. While editing any page or post, locate the BePro button above the tinymce editor. Once clicked, the shortcode builder will be revealed as a popup

Each shortcode is available for selection. Once selected, you are able to view and configure its options. Once ready to use the shortcode, simply click the button “use shortcode”. The shortcode builder will take the options you configured and past the shortcode in the tinymce editor when you can view it.
