Compatibility with pre-v2.0 versions

The button shortcode used to accept a type and color attributes that are now deprecated. Valid values for those attributes were:

  • type – Any one of: download, check, envelope, cancel, cart. Use of the type attributes is discouraged and unsupported. Existing shortcodes will get mapped to a similar icon.
  • color – Any one of: grey, white, blue, yellow, green, red, black, purple. Use of the color attributes is discouraged and unsupported. Existing shortcodes will get mapped to a similar scheme.

Compatibility with pre-v2.0 versions

The box shortcode used to accept a type attribute that is now deprecated. Valid values for this attribute were:

  • type – Any one of: normal, info, warning, download, error, success. Use of the type attribute is discouraged and unsupported. Existing shortcodes will get mapped to a similar icon.

Grid shortcodes:

[row][/row], [column][/column], [col][/col]

With these shortcodes you can create a grid system within your posts or pages which will allow you to display your content in columns. The shortcode uses a twelve grid layout so the maximum sum of columns in a single row can’t be more than twelve. Start by creating the [row][/row] shortcode which is the container for your columns, much like a row in a spreadsheet contains the cells from each column. Then proceed by adding the [col][/col] or [column][/column], each [col][/col] shortcode will have a number which will represent how much of the available width the particular column will take up, for example if you have [col desktop="6"][/col] this column will take up 6 columns from the total 12, so half the available width. You are now left with 6 more columns which you can either use up in one or more [col][/col] shortcodes.

 

row – Available attributes

  • none

column, col – Available attributes

  • desktop – Number of columns for the medium breakpoint ‘md‘.
  • tablet – Number of columns for the small breakpoint ‘sm‘.
  • mobile – Number of columns for the extra small breakpoint ‘xs‘. Default ‘12
  • class – Additional classes for the generated wrapper. Useful for applying styles and/or targeting in custom styles.
  • id – An optional HTML id value for the generated wrapper. Useful for targeting in custom styles.

 

Examples

Two equal columns

Col #1 Content
Col #2 Content

[row][col desktop="6" tablet="6"]Col #1 Content[/col][col desktop="6" tablet="6"]Col #2 Content[/col][/row]

Three equal columns

Col #1 Content
Col #2 Content
Col #3 Content

[row][col desktop="4"]Col #1 Content[/col][col desktop="4"]Col #2 Content[/col][col desktop="4"]Col #3 Content[/col][/row]

Two unequal columns on desktop, equal on tablets.

Col #1 Content
Col #2 Content

[row][column desktop="4"]Col #1 Content[/column][column desktop="8"]Col #2 Content[/column][/row]

 

Nested columns

WordPress can’t handle nested shortcodes of the same name. So, you can’t really do:

[row][column] Blah blah [row][column] Blah [/column][column] Blah [/column][/row][/column][column] Blah [/column][/row]

We have made available, however, the same row and column shortcodes prefixed with one and two undescores, so for each nesting level (up to two) you just ads an underscore. E.g.:

[row][column] Blah blah [_row][_column] Blah [/_column][_column] Blah [/_column][/_row][/column][column] Blah [/column][/row]

The additionally available shortcodes are: _row, __row, _column, __column, _col, __col

 

Compatibility with pre-v2.0 versions

The older shortcodes one_half, one_half_last, one_third, one_third_last, two_thirds, two_thirds_last are now deprecated. Although they are mapped to the new column shortcode for compatibility, it’s not possible to automatically wrap them in a row. So, results will vary from installation to installation, and even from post to post. If you are having troubles with the layout of these old shortcodes, try wrapping them in a [row][/row] shortcode.


Headings shortcodes:

[h][/h], [h1][/h1], [h2][/h2], [h3][/h3], [h4][/h4], [h5][/h5], [h6][/h6]

 

With the h shortcode, you can create styled headings for you content. The shortcodes h1-h6 are just shorthand aliases to h with the level attribute already set.

 

Available attributes

 

Examples

This is set from the options to be H2

[h scheme="green"]This is set from the options to be H2[/h]

A maroon H3 with globe

[h level="3" icon="fa-globe" fg_color="maroon" spin]A maroon H3 with globe[/h]

An H4 with a lemon

[h4 icon="fa-lemon-o" scheme="yellow"]An H4 with a lemon[/h4]

With a bottom border

[h3 icon="fa-globe" border_width="0 0 4px 0" border_color="#444444"]With a bottom border[/h3]



List shortcode:

[list][/list]

&nbsp
You can replace those boring default HTML bullets by any icon you like. Just create a normal unordered (ul) list from within the WordPress editor, and wrap it in a [list][/list] shortcode.

  • Item 2
    • Item 2-1

The maps API is off by default on new installations, to enable it go to Settings > CSSIgniter Shortcodes and check the Load Google Maps API box. Additionally you will need maps API key as it is mandatory for the map embed to work. More info about this here.

Slider shortcodes:

[slider][/slider] , [slide][/slide]

Common attributes.

 

Predefined color schemes.

Any shortcode that accepts an attribute named ‘scheme‘ can accept any one of the following values: blue, red, yellow, orange, purple, pink, brown, green, grey, white, black.

 

color

All attributes in every shortcode that accept a CSS color value, usually named ‘something_color’ can accept any of these color formats:

  • Hexadecimal: #000000 to #ffffff upper-case or lower-case. Shorthand notation is not allowed, i.e. #000 to #fff
  • rgb(): rgb($r, $g, $b) – Where $r $g and $b is a number 0-255 or a percentage 0%-100%
  • rgba(): rgba($r, $g, $b, $a) – As above, and $a between 0-1.
  • hsl(): hsl($h, $s, $l) – Where $h 0-360, $s and $l 0%-100%.
  • hsla(): hsla($h, $s, $l, $a) – As above, and $a between 0-1 (decimal values allowed).
  • Any one of the following keywords: transparent, initial, inherit, black, silver, gray, white, maroon, red, purple, fuchsia, green, lime, olive, yellow, navy, blue, teal, aqua

Please note that common names between the predefined colors above and the color schemes, doesn’t necessarily translate to the same color values.

 

spin_icon

Where a spin_icon attribute is available, valid values are: ‘true‘, ‘spin‘.
Furthermore, a ‘spin‘ value can be placed by itself as a shorthand, without the need for the attribute name.

 

Examples

The following shortcodes are all identical:

[button icon="fa-download" spin_icon="spin"]Some text[/button]

[button icon="fa-download" spin_icon="true"]Some text[/button]

[button icon="fa-download" spin]Some text[/button]

They all produce:

Some text

 

border_width

Shortcodes that have a border_width property, can accept any valid CSS shorthand border-width value:

  • One to four CSS units of length.
  • Any one of the following keywords: thin, medium, thick, initial, inherit

 

Examples

Just box.
[box border_width="2px"]Just box.[/box]

Just a weird box.
[box border_width="1px 2em 8px 4rem"]Just weird box.[/box]

corners

Shortcodes that have a corners property, can accept any valid CSS shorthand border-radius value:

  • One to four CSS units of length, optionally followed by a forward slash ‘/‘ and one to four CSS units of length.
  • Any one of the following keywords: initial, inherit

 

Examples

A box with rounded corners.
[box corners="10px"]A box with rounded corners.[/box]

A box with strange rounded corners.
[box corners="20px 2em / 10px"]A box with strange rounded corners.[/box]

padding

Shortcodes that have a padding property, can accept any valid CSS shorthand padding value:

Length Units

Any property that requires a CSS unit of length accepts a number immediately followed by one of the following units: px, %, em, rem, ex, ch, vh, vw, vmin, vmax, mm, cm, in, pt, pc

Decimal numbers expressed in pixels (px) may or may not work depending on each browser’s handling, they are however accepted by the plugin.

 

Examples

  • 1px
  • 0.5em
  • 1.2rem

Compatibility Mode

It’s quite common for users to have installed more than one shortcodes plugins, or for themes to provide their own shortcodes. When this happens, chances are that some shortcodes overlap, and more often than not, you end up having shortcodes that you can’t be sure where are they getting their styles and markup from.

Just go into the plugin’s settings panel, check the Compatibility Mode checkbox and Save Changes. You’ve just future-proofed your posts! All shortcodes now require a prefix of ‘ci-‘ minimizing the risk of collision with other shortcode providers. For example, instead of [button]Hello[/button] you should now write [ci-button]Hello[/ci-button]
