Built-In Shortcodes

Netlify Contact Form

A contact form working with the built-in Netlify form handling service is inserted with the shortcode:

{{< contact >}}

A custom success page URL may be given as a parameter:

{{< contact "/success" >}}

On-Click Soundcloud Player

An on-click Soundcloud Player is inserted with the shortcode:

{{< soundcloud 123456789 >}}

The parameter is a track ID and can be extracted from the "embed" sharing menu on the track webpage.

Custom CSS and JS

Site-Wide

Custom CSS and JS can be added to all the pages on the website. To do so, the relevant filenames must be added to the website config file:

params:
  css:
    - css/foo.css
    - bar.css
  js:
    - js/foo.js
    - bar.js

The paths are relative to the project working directory. In this example, the file paths would be assets/css/foo.css, assets/bar.css, assets/js/foo.js, assets/bar.js.

Dynamically Embedded

To embed CSS and JS resources on specific pages of the website, they must be added to the .Scratch variable from a shortcode template. As a result, they will be loaded in pages where the shortcode is used. For instance, a shortcode template could contain:

{{ resources.Get "myscript.js" | fingerprint | .Page.Scratch.SetInMap "js" "myscript" }}

This would load script myscript.js on every page where the shortcode is used.

As an example, this is the template for the built-in Soundcloud shortcode:

{{ resources.Get "css/soundcloud.css" | minify | fingerprint | .Page.Scratch.SetInMap "css" "soundcloud" }}
{{ resources.Get "js/soundcloud.js" | minify | fingerprint  | .Page.Scratch.SetInMap "js" "soundcloud" }}
<div class="Soundcloud" data-id="{{ .Get 0 }}"></div>
