Sponsors

This is a regular page with any content used to show an example of the Sponsor shortcode output. All level names are customizable. The shortcode allows you to display many things:

  • Category – this would be the sponsor level. You would type in the ‘slug’ name of the sponsor level you created. To determine the ‘slug’ name, click ‘Sponsor Level’ under the Sponsor menu option and you will see all the levels you have created, the level you would type in here is what is shown (exactly shown) in the ‘slug’ column.
  • Orderby – type ‘asc’ to order by the sponsors by the first created (post date) – meaning the first sponsor you created will appear first, type ‘desc’ to order by last created (post date) – meaning the last sponsor you created will appear first, type ‘rand’ to order by random (each time the page refreshes the order will change) or type ‘menu_order’ if you have placed numerical values in the Page Attributes ‘Order’ to order specific to your needs. If you choose ‘menu_order’, they numerical system will be desc meaning 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 order.
  • Columns – you can enter ‘1’, ‘2’, ‘3’ or ‘4’ here
  • Image – enter ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to show the featured image
  • Title – enter ‘yes or ‘no’ to show the sponsor name
  • Link – enter ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to have the image and/or name linked with the url in the ‘Company URL’ field pulled from the sponsor page
  • Bio – enter ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to display the content from the sponsor page
  • Show – Enter # of sponsors you would like to show. Enter something like 999999 to show all.

Here’s an example of a shortcode:

In this example I have chosen the cateogry of ‘Platinum’, 2 columns, title, link, bio and image, showing 2 only and finally displayed in descending order.

[sponsor_level category="Platinum" orderby="date" order="asc" columns="2" image="yes" title="yes" link="yes" bio="yes" show="2"]

Here is the output from that shortcode example

Etiam ligula enim, tempor ut, blandit nec, mollis eu, lectus.


Here’s another example of a shortcode:

In this example I have not entered a category because I want all sponsors to be part of this loop, I put the orderby as ‘rand’-meaning a random order will display every time the page refreshes, 4 columns, no title, yes to the link, showing all posts, no bio but display the image, and finally displayed in descending order.

[sponsor_level columns="4" orderby="menu_order" image="yes" title="no" link="yes" bio="no" show="999999"]

Here is the output from that shortcode example
