WP101 Video Tutorial [wp101] Shortcode

The WP101 shortcode allows users to embed specific WP101 courses or videos on their site. It checks if the user’s subscription permits embedding, then loads the specified course or video.

Here is a list of all possible wp101 shortcode parameters and attributes:

  • course – specifies the unique identifier of the WP101 course to display
  • video – specifies the unique identifier of the WP101 video to display

Examples and Usage

[wp101 course="beginners-guide"]

Basic example – Show a particular WP101 video by using its unique identifier

[wp101 video="how-to-install-wordpress"]

Embed a WP101 course or a video on your site, if your WP101 subscription allows embedding on the front-end. If the specified course or video is not found, a debug message will be displayed.

[wp101 course="advanced-seo-tips"]
