Shortcodes - Developer tool

Previously known as the ASAModule report, this feature has been refactored in Jomres 9.8.13.

The purpose of this page is to show site administrators how shortcodes can be used as part of their site building toolkit.

Shortcode functionality builds upon previous development with the Jomres ASAModule feature, which allows site administrators to add discreet Jomres pages to locations of their choice. ASAModule still works as described in other documents. Instead, this functionality sits on top of new code that we anticipate will allow us to build plugins that'll easily and simply add modules and widgets to locations of the user's choice.

The page itself should be self explanatory, especially if you're a Wordpress user. It displays a description of a shortcode, gives an example of how that shortcode and it's arguments may be used, and lists any arguments that can be used with the shortcode. Shortcode examples are shown differently depending on the host CMS, so Joomla shortcode examples can't be used in Wordpress, and vice versa.

 This page is dynamic, meaning that if a new plugin is installed which supports shortcode data, then this data will be available in this page after being installed.

Pay attention to the descriptions, as some arguments may not be used together with others.
