You can add a fortune cookie using shortcode with the code “[efortunecookie]”. It accepts optional parameters. If the parameters are not set, the default values will be used. Here are the parameters:
* width: the width of the fortune cookie image, such as “200px”.
* height: the width of the fortune cookie image, such as “200px”.
* font-size: the font size of the fortune cookie saying, such as “12px”.
* font-color: the font color of the fortune cookie saying, such as “%23000080”. This is actually the hexadecimal color “#000080”, but you need to replace “#” with “%23”.

To give a complete example, the full shortcode is “[efortunecookie width=”200px” height=”180px” font-size=”12px” font-color=”%23000080″]”.
