Shortcodes – Videos, Slideshows & Lightbox

55+ [highlight color=”gray”]useful[/highlight] shortcodes make editing content a snap. Select from simple HTML formatting (like highlights, dropcaps, spacings etc.) to complete plugins (sliders, maps, tabs etc.) To make life easier, there is an advance inbuilt ‘Shortcode Generator’ so you don’t have to go around hunting for Shortcode syntax (or worse, memorizing each and every option of your favorite shortcode).

Lightbox

Use the nifty prettyPhoto plugin to display Images, Videos and External sites in a lightbox. You can even use an image as the lightbox trigger. Like the one on right:

[frame_right][vspace space=”5″][lightbox type=”image” title=”Image in a Lightbox” href=”http://www.michanda.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/image3.gif”]

You can also have a [lightbox type=”youtube” title=”Video in a Lightbox” youtube_id=”lg5hj2c5Nkk”]Youtube Video[/lightbox] open in the lightbox
Or how about a [lightbox type=”vimeo” title=”Video in a Lightbox” vimeo_id=”30126264″]Vimeo Video[/lightbox]
And even a [lightbox type=”dailymotion” title=”Video in a Lightbox” dailymotion_id=”x3bid”]Dailymotion video[/lightbox]
