CSS ShortcodesJuly in Blog
Hello EcomCrew. Welcome to this article on wordpress shortcodes.

OK I Hope you guys enjoyed that example of a button. Now let’s move on.
But the first question is, why should we use shortcodes? Well, for a bunch of reasons:
- We can add a bunch of cool styling without having to know CSS, like this bulleted list with checkmarks
- We can add additional functionality to our articles
- It won’t break like with our custom CSS
But what’s the biggest reason to use shortcodes?
Your brain is probably already starting to imagine what we could do with shortcodes. Imagine a difficult to understand word like quagmire (scroll over for a tool tip).
But as we start to use short codes there’s one thing we must remember: not to get too carried away. It doesn’t matter how much makeup you put on a pig – it’s still a pig.
Wrapping things upConclusionShortcodes are powerful but we must not abuse them. Let’s think of some useful ways to incorporate shortcodes into our articles to make EcomCrew the best information site in the world for Amazon sellers.
