Beginning in Textpattern 4.7.0, you can use the new custom short-tags and shortcodes functionality to create reusable partials of markup that define things like content elements, widgets, and so forth, then make use of them by adding a simple, custom tag in your articles instead of lengthy, complex blocks of raw HTML.
(The idea is similar to functionality previously provided by the smd_macro or rah_beacon plugins, which this new core functionality now make obsolete.)
Following are shortcodes you can put to use immediately in a 4.7.0 installation of Textpattern. Everyone is welcome to contribute new shortcodes for community benefit. Each shortcode example must be its own documentation page.
- Image with caption shortcode (one possible use of HTML
figureelement; pulls data from a Textpattern image)
- Aside-quote shortcode (one possible use of HTML
asideelement; pulls data from a Textpattern link)
- Download link shortcode (a file download link/widget)
- Video embed shortcode (to embed a video in article)
