Coupon Creator

Create coupons to display on your site by using a shortcode.

Create your own coupon with the Coupon Creator for WordPress or upload an image of a coupon instead.

How to Create a Coupon

Create a coupon by going to the coupon custom post type and filling in all the settings in the custom meta box.

Insert the coupon into a post or page using the shortcode inserter above the content Editor.

Coupon displays until the expiration date chosen by you or you can check the Ignore Expiration Checkbox and the coupon will display on the site past the expiration date or with no date at all.

Coupon Creator Shortcode

The Coupon Shortcode: [coupon couponid="xx" category="Category Name(optional)" coupon_align="cctor_aligncenter" name="Coupon Name"]

Manually replace fields in shortcode:

couponid - replace xx with ID of Coupon custom post

couponalign - align coupon options: cctor_aligncenter, cctor_alignnone, cctor_alignleft, and cctor_alignright

name -optional and for your reference only

Coupon Loop

Set couponid to "loop" to display all coupons. (couponid="loop")

All the coupons in the loop will use the same couponalign.

Coupon Categories

Assign categories to a coupon and with the loop option only display coupons from a specific category.

category - add the category name to display coupons only from it

For example if you have a category called "Coupon Home Page", call it by:

category="Coupon Home Page"

Coupon Shortcode Inserter

Above the post editor click the "Add Coupon" button to open the inserter.

Select an individual coupon or coupon loop.

If you select the coupon loop, an option will appear to select a coupon category for the loop or you can leave it blank for all coupons (default).

The third option to select is the couponalign.

Once you have all the options selected, press "Insert Coupon" to insert the shortcode into the editor.

Examples

Find examples of coupons on the Coupon Creator Home Page

Coupons in Text Widgets

Coupons will work in Sidebar Text Widgets, but you must add

add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');

To your theme's function.php

Coupon Options

On the options page set default colors for new coupons.

Also options for nofollow on the links and templates along with an option to hide the click to print link.

With Version 1.80 you can add custom css in the options and it will modify both the shortcode coupon and the print template.
