Customer Review

Here is an exclusive customer review from Creative Market.

"I bought this plugin because I really wanted a retro unique style to my site. I've always loved 90s websites, GIFs, blinking text, etc. But it's so hard to find these days. You've done a great job on these retro touches. It works very well on my WordPress site. I love it! Thanks!"

What is a shortcode?

WordPress uses a technique called shortcodes to allow inserting special content to your posts in a simple manner. In other words shortcodes are a shortcuts for more complicated content.

You use shortcodes by typing the shortcode name in square bracket tags and the desired content between them. Let's see an example.

Imagine you have installed WordPress Text Effects Plugin and have now access to all the awesome shortcodes it provides. You want to insert a blinking text to your content. You type:


Now, when a visitor enters your page WordPress processes the shortcode and automatically inserts the special content – in this case a nice blinking greeting.
