Widget Shortcode

Description

The shortcode requires the widget ID, but no need to guess, the plugin generates the code for you. To override the widget title for a widget you can use the “title” parameter:
[widget id=”text-1″ title=”New title”]
You can also hide the widget title entirely if desired:
[widget id=”text-1″ title=”0″]

Additional Parameters:

  • container_tag: the HTML tag to use for the widget container, default: div
  • container_class: CSS classname added to the widget container, default: widget %2$s (Note: uses sprintf for variable substitution)
  • container_id: HTML ID attribute for the widget container, default: %1$s (Note: uses sprintf for variable substitution)
  • title_tag: HTML tag to use for the widget title wrapper, default: h2
  • title_class: CSS classname for the widget title wrapper, default: widgettitle
