WordPress shortcode popups generator.
WordPress shortcode popups generator is a PHP class, which facilitates creation of WordPress dynamic popup windows. This should help the developers out in creation of a well thught user interface for a more complex shortcodes having several fields. Generally manual management of shortcodes is quite cumbersome, our class aims to sort that issue out.
- First instantiate the class
$shortcodes = new WP_Doin_Shortcodes_Generator();
- Add a shortcode
$test = $shortcodes->add_shortcode( 'acfrpw', 'ACFRPW', 'Choose from a list of settings to create the acfrpw shortocde. Any content (shortcodes as well) can be placed in the textareas.' );
- Add some fields
$test->add_field( 'text', 'css', __( 'CSS Class', 'acf_rpw' ) );
- Generate the shortcode
You'll end up with a popup window that would place the following shortcode for you:
[acfrpw css="the text you specified"]
Currently there are 5 available fields to specify. The second argument of each add_field method needs to be different, as the values are stored as keys of the associative array. All of the fields take from 3 to 5 arguments, the first one denotes the type of the field used, the second one, a uniqe name of the field. The third one a heading of the element, which should describe the element, the fourth one a description, which describes the element in detail and the fift one, used for the select and checkbox fields is an array of key -> value pair used for the values and names of select options and checkbox fields.
- Column field The column field is used to divide the viewport to 1/3. Each column should have a 'start' and 'end' elements, placed respectively before and after all other column fields
->add_field( 'col', 'fcs', 'start' )
