The Shortcodes Add-on introduces a new position format, which allows you to position content via a shortcode rather than a WordPress/Genesis action hook. With this add-on, you can now display content blocks anywhere that supports shortcodes. The possibilities are endless! Please note that the Shortcodes Add-on requires Blox v1.4.0+.
On the Position tab of any block, you will see the option for Position Type. The add-on provides the Shortcode option. Select that and the block’s unique shortcode will be displayed. See the screenshot below.
Next, copy and paste this shortcode into anywhere that supports shortcode rendering, such as a post or a page.
Then if we take a look at the frontend of the site, we can see the content of the block being displayed between the two paragraphs, something that is not possible without the Shortcodes Add-on.
Enabling the Add-on
To start using this add-on, log into your account and then click on Downloads. Then download the latest version of the add-on you are looking to use. Upload the compressed file to your WordPress website, just as you would any other plugin. Once installed, you will want to activate the add-on license. Back in your account, on the Purchases tab, you will see a link to View Licenses. See the screenshot below. Click on this link.
On the following page, hover over the key icon of the add-on you are looking to activate. See the screenshot below. This will display the license key, which you will need to copy.
Finally, back on your website, navigate to the Licenses & Addons settings page, and activate the license as you did for Blox itself. For more details on activating licenses, please check out the Licensing page.
