Shortcode parameters

By using shortcode parameters, you can control certain parameters module data display.


Use template parameter for different output look. In right part, you can choose name of shortcode and copy it from left part.


Use next parameter if you want to divide whole list on separate blocks.

For example, this shortcode with the parameter next will show first Amazon item:

[content-egg module=Amazon next=1]

If you add again the same shortcode, then you will see the next item:

[content-egg module=Amazon next=1]

An another example with next:

First two items:

[content-egg module=Amazon next=2]

Next four products:

[content-egg module=Amazon next=4]


You can use next parameter for module's and for common shortcodes.


These parameters are similar to next, but you have more control on them.

Next shortcode will show 3 offers from Amazon but will start from third product in list (first product has 0 number)

[content-egg module=Amazon limit=3 offset=2]


Another useful parameter of shortcode is post_id. It can be useful when you create “Top set” pages and want to show data from several posts:

[content-egg module=Amazon template=item post_id=123]

This shortcode will show an Amazon module data from post with ID = 123


You can also show offers from several modules with modules parameter

[content-egg-block template=offers_list modules=Amazon,Ebay]


In some output layouts, for example, in grid shortcode, you can control number of columns per row

[content-egg-block template=offers_grid cols=2]


You can use this parameter only in sortable shortcodes, for example in lists. You can set asc, desc. Example:

[content-egg-block template=offers_list order=desc]

Default is - asc.


Filter by product ID. Click on the product image to add product ID filter to shortcode:

You can also set multiple ID separated by commas.


This parameter can be used with item template only to disable "Features" section:

[content-egg module=Amazon template=item disable_features=1]


If you have offers in your product list with different currency, you can convert them all into one currency (list of available currencies):

[content-egg-block template=offers_grid currency=EUR]

You can use this currency parameter for module shortcodes and common block shortcodes.

If your currency is not listed above, you can add exchange rate manually. Add in functions.php of your theme (or child theme):

function my_content_egg_currency_rate ($rate, $from, $to)
if ($from == 'USD' && $to == 'KES')
return 100.15; // <--- rate
if ($from == 'KES' && $to == 'USD')
return 0.01; // <--- rate
add_filter( 'content_egg_currency_rate', 'my_content_egg_currency_rate', 0, 3 );


Check how to use groups.


Use this parameter to set custom text for buttons, for example:

[content-egg module=Amazon template=list_no_price btn_text="CHECK PRICE"]
[content-egg-block template=buttons_row btn_text="%PRICE% at %MERCHANT%"]


You can use hide shortcode parameter to hide some product data.

For example, hide product price:

[content-egg-block template=offers_list hide=price]

hide product price and domain name:

[content-egg module=Ebay template=list hide=price,domain]

All available fields: 'price', 'priceOld', 'domain', 'rating', 'title', 'stock_status', 'img', 'merchant'.


Use show parameter only with "customizable"block template. We also recommend adding product parameter to show only one information about a product (like price, title, button, etc):

product price: [content-egg-block template=customizable product="808726894" show=price]

All available fields: title, img, price, priceOld, currencyCode, button, stock_status, url.
