EPFL shortcode

These shortcodes are used to display data coming from EPFL Apis. the EPFL provides a plugin responsible for fetching the data, formatting it and declaring a correct backend UI via (Shortcake)[].

To share data between the plugin and the theme, the plugins use wordpress (actions)[].

The role of the theme is only to output correct markup for each given shortcode, using the given data, retrieved with the corresponding action.

Add a shortcode

  1. Create a new folder in shortcodes/
  2. create controller.php
  3. create view.php
  4. implement your logic in the controller, your rendering in the view
  5. enjoy!
You can’t perform that action at this time.
