Sample Content Shortcode


Sample Content Shortcode displays paragraphs, links, lists, tables, headings & other standard HTML structures. Code examples are provided for each chunk of sample content.

A few notes about the sections above:


  • Snap of sample content generated with code samples.


  1. Upload the sample-content-shortcode folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Type [sample-content] in any post/page/widget.


Some of the sample structures look messed up on my site, what gives?

There are a few non-standard classes used as examples that your theme may not include.

Do you really use the words deals, meals, wheels as slang?
