Easily generate shortcodes for the PTA plugins from Stephen Sherrard Plugins. Adds a PTA Shortcode generator button to the TinyMCE “classic editor” on page/post edit screens.
Generates shortcodes for the PTA Volunteer Sign Up Sheets plugin and the PTA Member Directory and Contact Form plugin, both of which are also free plugins on WordPress.org:
PTA Volunteer Sign Up Sheets
PTA Member Directory and Contact Form
- Although this works by itself, the shortcodes it generates won’t do anything unless you have one of the following PTA plugins installed:
- PTA Volunteer Sign Up Sheets
- PTA Member Directory and Contact Form
Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.
In the search field type “PTA Shortcodes” and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found the plugin you can view details about it such as the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking “Install Now”.
Download and Extract the zip file and just drop the contents in the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation and then activate the Plugin from Plugins page.
