[adsensetl][kuadika]I enjoy coding. That’s why I love WordPress, and learning something new everyday is an added bonus. Recently, I’ve been working on a project to implement interactive transcripts to videos. This is a feature that our clients would appreciate. Anyway, there was an hurdle in implementing interactive transcripts into a WordPress blog and I turned to the WordPress Shortcode API to find a solution.

What I realized was that the WordPress Shortcode API is very easy to learn and work with. And although it didn’t provide a simple solution to the problem I had with the interactive transcripts project, I did realize how powerful it is. Immediately I could tell that the Shortcode API was going to make blogging much easier.

For instance, “…are you eager to read more?” or “…click here to read the rest of the post”… you can even add an image or HTML character entities/extended characters. Try this ‘« « « «’
