Support » Plugins » Hacks » Multiple Parameters for a Shortcode

  • Hello,
    I am working on building some shortcodes for my blog.
    I can set a single parameter for my shortcode, but not sure how to set different parameter.

    For example, I can use [myshortcode myvalue] to output a html block within the post content.

    Now, how can I use [myshortcode myothervalue] to output a different block of html?

    Please note that the shortcode is same, only the parameter is changed.

    try to use attributes, so you can use, for example:

    [myshortcode value="my"]
    and
    [myshortcode value="myother"]

    alchymyth,
    Thanks for replying. I know I can do that, but that’s not exactly what I want.

    Is there anything that serves my requirements?

    that is usually doen with the attributes.

    possibly start by posting the code of your existing shortcode – this might help to explain what you want.

    what stops you to use two different shortcodes?
