Shortcode – Basic structure
The structure of a Shortcode for the free JCI Plugin is like this:
The template is inline between “jsoncontentimporter”
[jsoncontentimporter parametername1=parametervalue1] Template [/jsoncontentimporter]
You can use the JCI PRO Plugin (free and PRO-Plugin are entirely independent) in the same way (template inline), but storing as much as possible in a JCI template is recommended. Such a JCI-Template has a name for referencing it by “nameoftemplate” in the jsoncontentimporterpro-Shortcode.
The main advantage is that settings and templates are separated from the page where the Shortcode is used.
[jsoncontentimporterpro nameoftemplate=MY_TEMPLATE_NAME parametername1=parametervalue]
Each Plugin has a set of shortcode-parameter names defined – other than those are ignored. Depending on the parameter value, the result of the Plugin is determined.
