QR Code Generator

Description

Use this qr code wordpress plugin to create a qr code on any site of your WordPress installation. Content can be any text or the current URL of the site where it is embeded.

How to use it:

  • Use the shortcode [qrcode] within your site to generate a qr code including the URL of the current site

  • Use the fullowing short code to generate a indivdual qr code with any text content:

    [qrcode content=”CONTENT” size=”120″ alt=”ALT_TEXT” class=”CLASS_NAME”]

    • It`s not neccessary to give any parameters!

    • Possible parameters are: alt, size, class, credit, shadow

    • If you don`t give any parameter like ‘alt’ or ‘size’, the standard parameters are:
      alt = “Scan the QR Code”
      size = 120
      class=””
      credit = true
      shadow = true

  • The credit option gives a really small but nice looking image link on bottom of the qrcode. If you don´t like it or don´t want to give me any credits you can deactivate it with ‘credit = false’. But i will be glad if you let that small link where it is :D’

Reviews

Working great!

Once I understood how to use the shortcode I was very surprised to find this plugin worked with this version of WordPress. I am using the Customizr theme, WordPress 4.7.3 and only a few other plugins. I needed to create a few QR codes and it worked perfectly. Wow, thanks.
