Team Showcase [team] Shortcode

The Team Showcase shortcode is a powerful tool that displays a specific team member’s information on your WordPress site. By using this shortcode, you can directly call the ‘team_showcase_display’ function, which accepts ‘id’ as a parameter. This ‘id’ refers to the unique identifier of a team member. The function then generates a dynamic HTML block, embedding the team member’s data within a ‘team-container’ div. This allows for flexible and customizable team member displays.

Shortcode: [team]


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

  • id – Unique identifier of the team showcase

Examples and Usage

Basic example – Showcases a team by referencing its ID

[team id=1 /]

PHP Function Code

In case you have difficulties debugging what causing issues with [team] shortcode, check below the related PHP functions code.

Shortcode line:

add_shortcode( 'team', array( $this, 'team_showcase_display' ) );

Shortcode PHP function:

                    function team_showcase_display($atts, $content = null ) {
        $atts = shortcode_atts(
                'id' => "",

            ), $atts);

        $html = '';
        $team_id = isset($atts['id']) ? $atts['id'] : '';

        $args = array('team_id'=> $team_id);

        <div id="team-<?php echo $team_id; ?>" class="team-container">
            do_action('team_showcase_main', $args);
        return ob_get_clean();

Team Showcase [team_import_xml_layouts] Shortcode

The ‘team_import_xml_layouts’ shortcode is a powerful tool that imports XML layouts into your WordPress site. It fetches data from an XML source, creates new posts under ‘team_layout’, and updates post meta.

Shortcode: [team_import_xml_layouts]

Examples and Usage

Basic example – Importing team layouts from an XML source

[team_import_xml_layouts xml_source=""]

Advanced examples

Importing team layouts from a local XML file located within the WordPress installation

[team_import_xml_layouts xml_source="/path/to/local/xml"]

Importing team layouts from an XML source and specifying the user ID for the post author

[team_import_xml_layouts xml_source="" user_id="2"]

Note: The user ID must be a valid user ID of a user in your WordPress installation. If not specified, the function will use the ID of the current user.

Also, please remember that the `team_import_xml_layouts` shortcode should only be used by users with the `manage_options` capability (usually administrators), as it involves creating new posts and updating post metadata.

PHP Function Code

In case you have difficulties debugging what causing issues with [team_import_xml_layouts] shortcode, check below the related PHP functions code.

Shortcode line:

add_shortcode('team_import_xml_layouts', 'team_import_xml_layouts');

                    function team_import_xml_layouts($xml_source)

    if (!current_user_can('manage_options')) return;

    $response = array();
    $user_id = get_current_user_id();

    $json_obj = file_get_contents($xml_source);

    //$xml_json = json_encode($html_obj);
    $xml_arr = json_decode($json_obj, true);

    $items = $xml_arr['rss']['channel']['item'];

    foreach ($items as $item) {

        $post_title = isset($item['title']) ? $item['title'] : '';
        $postmeta = isset($item['postmeta']) ? $item['postmeta'] : array();

        $post_id = wp_insert_post(
                'post_title'    => $post_title,
                'post_content'  => '',
                'post_status'   => 'publish',
                'post_type'       => 'team_layout',
                'post_author'   => $user_id,

        //            echo '<br>';
        //            echo $post_title. ' Created';
        //            echo '<br>';

        foreach ($postmeta as $meta) {

            $meta_key = isset($meta['meta_key']['__cdata']) ? $meta['meta_key']['__cdata'] : '';
            $meta_value = isset($meta['meta_value']['__cdata']) ? $meta['meta_value']['__cdata'] : '';

            //            echo '<br>';
            //            //var_dump(unserialize($meta_value));
            //            echo '<br>';

            if ($meta_key == 'layout_options' || $meta_key == 'layout_elements_data' || $meta_key == 'custom_scripts') {

                update_post_meta($post_id, $meta_key, unserialize($meta_value));

    $response['success'] = __('Import done', 'team');

    $team_plugin_info = get_option('team_plugin_info');

    if (strpos($xml_source, 'team-pro')) {
        $team_plugin_info['import_pro_layouts'] = 'done';
    } else {
        $team_plugin_info['import_layouts'] = 'done';

    update_option('team_plugin_info', $team_plugin_info);
