CM HelpScout Docs Portal (CMHSDP) - Shortcodes
TIP: What Are Shortcodes
Shortcodes add dynamic content to your site via a small piece of code. Learn more: Shortcodes - How To Use
The plugin support several shortcodes:
- Display category:
- Display collection:
- Display single article:
Category, collection and article attributes can be taken directly from https://www.helpscout.net/.
For example if help for category is available on address https://www.helpscout.net/category/150-category-name then in shortcode category attribute should have 150-category-name value (or just 150).
If you want to pass category, collection or article by url parameter use, or shortcode parameters.
For example to pass category 150-category-name by url http://localhost/cminds/sample-page/?my_param=150-category-name use shortcode:
