Using our buttons shortcodes, you can easily create a variety of buttons. These buttons all stem from a single tag, but vary in color and size (each of which are adjustable using color=”” and type=”” parameters). Furthermore, advanced option buttons have been integrated into the post page text editor, allowing you to instantly generate buttons of any type without having to write the shortcode markup yourself.
2. Content Boxes
Content boxes are a great way to grab your visitor’s eye and direct them to important content within the post. The ElegantThemes shortcode pack comes with five box variations, all of which stem from the [ box ] shortcode and are adjustable using the type=”” parameter. These boxes have a fluid width that automatically adjusts the the size of its parent element. In this example, each box is placed within a [ one_third ] column.

Now you can create toggled content on the fly using the [ lear_more ] shortcode. Any content can be added within the toggled div, and you can even specify whether the element should be open or closed on page load. The toggled content shortcode has a fluid width, meaning it can adapt to any size page (as shown below).
4. Tabbed Content
Now you can create tabbed content with the click of a button using the [ tab ] shortcode. This shortocode has two variations (horizontal and vertical tabs) and has options for auto-rotation, rotation speed and transition animation. These tabs have a fluid width, which means that they can adjust to any page size. In this example each tabbed element has been placed within a [ one_half ] column. We have also integrated advanced buttons for the tabs shortcode, allowing you to create your tabs through a graphical interface rather than having to write the shortcode markup yourself.
6. Image Slider
The [ tab ] shortcode also acts as an image slider. This slider can produce an image slideshow of any size. The shortcode will even automatically crop and resize your images to fit the dimensions of the slider that you have chosen. You can also choose to enabled/disable auto rotation, adjust the transition effect, and increase/decrease the rotation speed.

11. Column Layouts
Sometimes it can get frustrating trying to organize content via the WordPress text editor. With the column layout shortcodes, however, you can now break down your content into any number of advanced layouts giving variety and hierarchy to your post. Columns can be created in halves, thirds, fourths and two-thirds.
Dropcaps are a simply typographic technique that will spice up and give hierarchy to your post copy. Simply wrap a little at the beginning of your paragraph with the drop cap shortcode and it will become nested within the body content. You can then apply any style that you want to the letter, allowing you to change its size, color and font face.

The new pricing tables offer you a beautiful way to showcase your various products and how their features and prices compare with each other. What before would have been a complicated HTML endeavor can now be created quickly and easily using the [ pricing_table] shortcode. Using this shortcode you can list features differentiated with the green check or red x, adjust the table titles and descriptions, change the price and adjust the button text and URL. You can also choose between two pricing table styles (big and small).
The new testimonials shortcode gives you an easy way to show your visitors what your customers think about your product. Gaining the trust of your viewers is important, and now it’s easier than ever to create styled testimonial blurbs on any of your posts or pages.
