What if you could put a form, promotional button, or banner anywhere on your blog by typing in a short code like this ‘moremoney’?
This is exactly what shortcodes were made for. By now you’ve probably seen people put graphic call-to-actions at the end of ther posts. Before I learned about shortcodes I actually inserted a linked image on each post. I remember spending one weekend adding a promotional banner to 60 blog posts. A week later I realized that I made a typo and had to go back and change all of them! That sucked.
Thank god there is a better way.
