Using Basic CataBlog Shortcodes Tutorial
Step 1 ) The following image shows you different color blocks displayed in the catalog.
The following shortcode and parameter [catablog template=”gallery” ] is used. This shortcode includes the parameter template=”gallery” with gallery template.
List Of Color
- Black Color
- Blue Color
- Lime Color
- Gold Color
- Red Color
The following image also displays Previous underneath the 5 images. If there are no more images to display then this feature is pointless and it makes no sense to display it on the catalog. To remove this option from the catalog, click on the following URL Troubleshooting CataBlog and check Q10 for a solution.
Step 2 ) The following image shows you the different color blocks displayed vertically. Each image shows you the title and a description underneath the title.
The following shortcode and parameter [catablog_gallery id=”7″ ] is used. The parameter has gallery number 7 assigned to it.
Using Limit Parameter
Step 4 ) The following image shows you two images displayed in the catalog with Previous 1 2 3 Next option. There are 3 sets of catalogs to view. This is because the limit of 2 is implemented in the shortcode. Remember there are 5 images in total that belong to the gallery with id 7.
The following shortcode and parameters [catablog_gallery id=”7″ limit=”2″ ] is used. This shortcode is using two parameters id=”7″ and limit=”2″. The id has gallery number 7 assigned to it and the paremeter limit has a limit of 2 added.
Step 6 ) The following image shows you one image displayed in the catalog. The description is displayed underneath the title.
The following shortcode and parameters [catablog category=”red-color ] is used. This shortcode is using the following parameter category=”red-color”. The category has red-color assigned to it.
Note: In this example you can also use the following shortcode [catablog_gallery id=”34″ ].
