Custom Shortcodes ↑ Back to top
There are three custom shortcodes built into Capital that may be used on the home page and throughout your site.
Mini Features ↑ Back to top
To display mini features on your homepage, go to Appearance > Widgets and use the following mini-feature shortcodes in the Text widget.
The mini features shortcode allows you to to display short snippets of content in columns of three with icons (screenshot).
The shortcode should be laid out like this:
[mini-feature icon=”http://path.to/image.png” title=”Feature 1″]
[mini-feature icon=”http://path.to/image.png” title=”Feature 2″]
[mini-feature icon=”http://path.to/image.png” title=”Feature 3″]
Features are most effectively displayed in multiples of three as the CSS automatically sorts mini features in rows of three. Also note than the mini features must be wrapped inside the [mini-feature-wrap].
Sale ↑ Back to top
The [sale] shortcode displays a sale banner anywhere on your site. This pairs nicely with our sale page template.
To use the [sale] shortcode, place your sale banner content within [sale] tags:
[sale]Sale now on, up to 50% off all stock![/sale]
Sticky Note ↑ Back to top
The [sticky] shortcode shows notices on your site that are styled to appear as post-it notes. This helps a short piece of content stand out somewhere on your site. It can be aligned to the right or left of your content and given a custom class.
To use the [sticky] shortcode, place your message within [sticky] tags:
[sticky]This is a sticky note, awesome![/sticky]
You can attach any class name you wish to the sticky shortcode, in case you want to add further custom styling.
