WP Affiliate Disclosure [wpadc] Shortcode

The WP Affiliate Disclosure shortcode is designed to generate a disclosure statement on your website. It extracts the ‘id’ attribute from the shortcode and uses it to create a unique CSS id for the disclosure statement. The shortcode then initiates a new WPADC_Disclosure_Statement object and renders it within a div. The output is buffered, cleaned, and returned as HTML. Shortcode: [wpadc_sc] The ‘apply_filters’ function allows for additional customization, making this shortcode a versatile tool for any WordPress site. Shortcode: [wpadc_sc]

Shortcode: [wpadc]


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

  • id – The unique identifier for the disclosure statement.

Examples and Usage

Basic example – A shortcode that displays the affiliate disclosure statement without any specific ID.

[wpadc /]

Advanced examples

Using the shortcode to display a specific affiliate disclosure statement by referencing its ID. This will load the disclosure statement associated with the given ID.

[wpadc id=2 /]

Another advanced usage could be applying filters to the shortcode. This can be done by passing the filter name as an attribute to the shortcode. The following example shows how to apply a filter named ‘custom_filter’ to the shortcode.
