12. Shortcodes

Shortcodes are one of the most powerful tools of WordPress. Dottoro Theme supports over 100 shortcodes that enable you to place a high variety of components (buttons, tables, tabs, tooltips, etc.), widget areas, widgets, slideshows, media galleries, videos and other content on your pages. You can also apply skins to the majority of the shortcodes. This feature enables you to customize the appearance of the displayed elements without bothering with codes and web programming.

The main advantage of shortcodes is the flexibility. Most of the shortcodes provide a number of attributes that allow you to cutomize the way the shortcode works. If a shortcode gets an unknown attribute, it will be assigned to the top level HTML element of the content created by the shortcode. Thus you can add HTML attributes, events and style properties to the contents displayed by a shortcode.
