Installation Instructions

This plugin is for self-hosted Wordpress sites only. You cannot install plugins to sites hosted on wordpress.org.

  • Download the plugin from this page
  • Log into your Wordpress Admin
  • Click the "Plugins" menu
  • Click "Add New"
  • Click "Upload"
  • Upload the plugin and activate!


Once you have installed and activated the plugin, a new menu link will appear in your Wordpress admin titled "BB Flex". Use it to configure your App ID and other plugin settings. You must create a flex store app on Beat Brokerz to get an App ID. Once you have created an app on Beat Brokerz and saved the App ID to your plugin settings page, the flex framework will begin to load automatically on your site.

Shortcode Example

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

The Wordpress plugin includes a shortcode format that you can enable/disable for your site via the plugin settings mentioned above. The shortcode 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.
  • 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.
  • A single space separates each parameter, and an equal sign separates the parameter name from the value.
  • Each parameter value should be enclosed in quotation marks.
