Segment 2: Shortscodes – what are they?!

A shortcode is a WordPress-specific code that lets you do nifty things with very little effort. Shortcodes can embed files or create objects that would normally require lots of complicated, ugly code in just one line. 

Shortcode = shortcut.

A very simple sample code to use when creating a custom plugin.

function my_name () {

return ‘Written by, Adam Silver';


add_shortcode( ‘name', ‘my_name');
