Elegant Themes are great looking themes with a vary reasonable prices. Their themes are also packed with lots of useful functionality and one of them is a great shortcode package.
Elegant themes comes with a combination of some useful shortcodes which can make it easy for you to create pricing tables, tabbed content, shadow boxes, buttons etc.
Till now users have to use their themes in order to use these shortcodes but now they have released those shortcodes as a plugin. So if you want to use them with any other theme, you can just install that plugin and start using those shortcodes. I am using it on Makewebworld with Thesis Theme.
The plugin is part of Elegant Themes developer licence and can be downloaded from member area. If you are an existing member as of July 2012, you can get it for free from your member area.
Elegant Themes Shortcodes
The plugin provides an access to all the shortcodes available on Elegant Themes. It adds a section on your edit post screen from where you can insert your shortcodes on post and pages.
Here is a list of shortcodes available to you:
[one_third] [custom_list type=”check”]
- Content Boxes
- Toggled Content
- Tabbed Content
[/custom_list] [/one_third] [one_third] [custom_list type=”check”]
- Image Slider
- Column Layouts
- Custom Icon List
[/custom_list] [/one_third] [one_third_last] [custom_list type=”check”]
- Corporate Pricing Table
PS: Above list is an example of Custom Icon List and just took one simple shortcode to create. Some of them is a really handy codes for your business pages like pricing tables, testimonials etc.
This plugin does work with other plugins like Premise. I am using Premise for the landing pages on Makewebworld and this plugin does provide support for pricing tables and column layouts. It does make it easy to use different column layouts on your landing pages.
This plugin is easily worth the yearly membership price alone, but you will get an access to all the themes made by Elegant Themes, which is pretty sweet.
[box type=”info”] If you decide to cancel your Elegant Themes yearly membership, you can keep this plugin on your sites. Only thing is that you will not receive any future updates.[/box]
