Shortcode Example

[bbflex:widget="widgetname",width="500",height="100",param3="value3"]

The Joomla extension includes a shortcode format that you can enable/disable for your site via the plugin settings mentioned above. The shortcode format is enabled by default when you install the plugin. You can use shortcodes inline with your content to display individual flex widgets on a page within any given post. Just type the shortcode into your content editor in the place where you want the widget to show.

Shortcode Syntax Breakdown

  • The shortcode is always enclosed on both ends by brackets [ ].
  • The word "bbflex" always follows the first bracket This lets the plugin know you want to show a flex widget.
  • A colon ":" immediately follows the word bbflex to separate it from the parameters.
  • A comma separates each parameter/value pair, and an equal sign separates the parameter name from the value.
  • Every shortcode has a "widget" parameter for which you supply the name of the widget you want to display.
  • Depending on the widget, more configuration parameters may be available, and may or may not be required.
  • Each parameter value should be enclosed in quotation marks.

Widgets
