Mortgage Calculators WP [mcwp] Shortcode

The Mortgage Calculators WP shortcode is a powerful tool that enables different types of mortgage calculations on your website. The shortcode fetches user attributes and runs a function to determine the type of mortgage calculator to display. It supports Conventional, FHA, VA, MHA, and Refinance calculators. The selected calculator is then wrapped in a form with a unique CSS class, allowing for custom styling. The form also includes a hidden field for email functionality.

Shortcode: [mcwp]


Here is a list of all possible mcwp shortcode parameters and attributes:

  • type – Determines the type of the mortgage calculator

The type param of the shortcode can take five different values, each value corresponds to a different type of mortgage calculator.

  • fha – Loads the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) calculator
  • va – Loads the Veterans Affairs (VA) mortgage calculator
  • mha – Loads the Making Home Affordable (MHA) calculator

Each of these different calculator types has its own form layout and calculations, providing a unique set of features to the user.
