WP Google Review Slider [wprevpro_usetemplate] Shortcode

The WP Google Places Review Slider plugin shortcode is a powerful tool enabling the display of Google reviews on your website. The shortcode uses the ‘wprev_usetemplate_func’ function, which fetches reviews based on the template ID (‘tid’) provided. The output is then included in the webpage using the ‘wp-google-reviews-public-display.php’ file.

Shortcode: [wprevpro_usetemplate]


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

  • tid – The unique identifier of the template
  • bar – An additional parameter for extra functionality

Examples and Usage

Basic example – It showcases a simple way to use the shortcode by referencing the template ID.

[wprevpro_usetemplate tid=1 /]

Advanced examples

Example 1: In this example, we are using the shortcode to display a review template by referencing both template ID and bar. The bar parameter can be used for adding additional customization to your template.

[wprevpro_usetemplate tid=1 bar="custom" /]

Example 2: Here, we are using the shortcode with multiple template IDs. This can be useful when you want to display reviews from multiple templates on the same page.

[wprevpro_usetemplate tid="1,2,3" bar="custom" /]

Remember, the ‘tid’ attribute is used to specify the template ID(s), and the ‘bar’ attribute is used for adding extra customization to your template. If the template ID is not found, the shortcode will not display anything.
