Shortcodes

If you are not familiar with shortcodes, these are extra magic spells to use in text which can for example add a special icon or text box. You just start with opening shortcode, put some text or other stuff inside and write closing shotrcode on the end. Some shortcodes don’t need the closing tag (for example horizontal lines). Have a look at some examples of Fast Blog shortcodes:

Boxes

If you want to distinguish some text you can use these shortcodes:

Etiam ullamcorper. Suspendisse a pellentesque dui, non felis. Maecenas malesuada elit lectus felis, malesuada ultricies.
[box]

[box icon="arrow"]
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet enim dolores.
[box icon="x" align="right"]
Etiam ullamcorper. Suspendisse a pellentesque dui, non felis. Maecenas malesuada elit lectus felis, malesuada ultricies.
[box icon="lifesaver"]
Suspendisse a pellentesque dui, non felis.
[box icon="exclamation"]
Maecenas malesuada elit lectus felis, malesuada ultricies.
[box icon="plus"]
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet enim. Etiam ullamcorper. Suspendisse a pellentesque dui, non felis. Maecenas malesuada elit.
[box icon="warning"]

There are 76 icons to use.

Columns

Now, columns a really cool. They give you infinite possibilities to cut page for columns. There are 2 methods to do so:

Count method:

[column count=”2″]
stuff inside the first column
[/column]

[column count=”2″ last=”last”]
stuff inside the second and last column
[/column]

or my favourite – fraction method:

[column type=”1/2″]
stuff inside the first colum
[/column]

[column type=”1/2″ last=”last”]
stuff inside the second and last column
[/column]

Of course you can  create 1/5 + 1/5 + 3/5 columns etc. Remember to mark the last column with the last=”last” parameter. If you are using count method, you can use additional colspan shortcode which works like colspan in HTML (kind of merging two columns).

This is an example of 3 different size columns:

Malis tation per te. Te mediocrem intellegat adipiscing vel. Brute omnes pertinacia mea an. Vim iriure regione habemus te, qui in elit elitr. Natum definiebas argumentum iquo.

Vis velit diceret mnesarchum et, eos ex unum causae. Meis eleifend vim ei, velit graeci reformidans te ius. Eum esse tollit gloriatur cu. At sit inermis adolescens.

Cu graeco volumus erroribus qui. Pri detracto qualisque eu. Sit dictas propriae consectetuer at, ea dicam postea cotidieque sit, erant movet constituto cu per. No vix fugit inani errem. Blandit necessitatibus id eos. Primis debitis qui at.
Tempor timeam ad nam, graece iriure prodesset et pro. Ea habemus iudicabit sea, solet dicam et nam. Nullam regione eum cu, ut kasd tota pertinacia per. Illud saperet ex eum. Qui atomorum oportere ex, vim et affert urbanitas efficiantur. Atqui tation doctus ex sed. Pro eu facer alienum dolores. Pro aliquid vocibus eu, facilis feugait nec ut, quo iuvaret complectitur ei. Ridens blandit no vix, eam no tamquam definitionem.

Lines

Now have a look at line. Simple as that:

[line]
