Shortcodes

This plugin creates two shortcodes for you to integrate Promos into your site

[promolist]

This shortcode will display a grid of thumbnail previews for each of your public Promos. Clicking one of the previews takes the user to a page with all the promo details. It accepts 2 parameters:

@size: <integer> The number of Promos to list. Defaults to 6. Use 0 for all Promos.
@columns: <integer> The number of columns in the grid. Defaults to 3. Must be a value between 1 and 6. Columns will respond to the browser screen size.

Example: Show all promos in a 4 column grid:
[promolist size=”0″ columns=”4″]

[promo]

This shortcode will show a single thumbnail preview for a Promo. Clicking the preview takes the user to a page with all the promo details. Note that it’s possible for you to display a Private promo using this shortcode.

@id: <integer> The Promo ID. Required.
@max-width: <css width value> Defaults to 400px
