2 - Embedding with Short Code
Last updated on 4/18/2014
You can create links to your uploaded documents and images in articles, products, events or any item with modifiable body text by using short code. Just open the article editor, product editor, or event editor and insert short code in the Body (or Summary) field. See the links below for instructions and details:
Short Code Reference
|Base Code||( (img|image-name.jpg) )|
|Options||Image Size - Directs the software to use the entered width and height for image size.||width=xxx pixels
|Captions - Allows captions to appear under photos||captions=this is the caption|
|Positioning - Directs the software to position/float the image to the left or right of text.||float = left or right|
|Margins - Directs the software to apply space between the edges of the image and the text. Margins can be defined as a uniform space around all edges; grouped as top and bottom or left and right; or margins can be defined separately all around the image.||margin=X pixels (applies a uniform number of pixels all around the image).
margin=V,H pixels (V defines a top and bottom margin in pixels, H defines a left and right margin in pixels).
(T=top margin, R=right margin, B=bottom margin and L=left margin). Margins must be defined in this specific order. All expressed in pixels).
( ( img|myphoto.jpg|float=right|width=160|height=120|margin=5 ) )
( ( img|hello.jpg|caption=this is the caption ) )
( ( img|myphoto.jpg|width=200|float=right|caption=my long caption text ) )
( ( myphoto.png|float=left|margin=5,0,2,10 ) )
|Additional Considerations||Formats allowed: PNG, GIF, JPEG, and JPG. All others are rejected.
Image name is looked up in the pub/photo folder (Multimedia->Images). Use the exact name in short code or it will not work.
|Add link to short code to create links for outside urls, internal urls, internal pages, documents in the pub/doc or pub/photo folders. You can add link in front of the img code to hyperlink your images.|
|Base Code||( ( link|url, page, document or image name ) )|
Add URL to link to a direct URL, or a local 'short url'
( ( link|url=http://somesite.com ) ) or ( ( link|url=my-article-short-url ) )
Link to a website page from your own website
( ( link|page=home|text=Home Page ) )
Image in Document Folder:
Photo will be looked up in the pub/doc folder before pub/photo
( ( link|doc=myfamilyphoto.jpg ) )
Create a hyperlinked image in body text
( ( link|img=image name.jpg|url=http://URL to link to|float=right|width=50|height=50 ) )
If you use link with img, you can also use all the image options (float, margins, width, height).
|Base Code||( ( script|your script name ) )|
|Examples||For different script examples, go to Script Reference.|
