What Are Shortcodes?
Fusebox Player Shortcodes
Our Fusebox Players work with shortcodes. A shortcode is a piece of code that you add to your text editor in WordPress. Here are some examples.
Full Player Shortcodes:
The full player shortcode only works with your podcast host RSS feed.
This full player shortcode is pulling the default RSS from your player defaults in your Fusebox Settings:
This full player shortcode is overwriting the default RSS feed and default show name from your player defaults, using the shortcode builder to add a new RSS feed and show name:
[fusebox_full_player url="https://feed.pod.co/you-me-empathy-sharing-our-mental-health-stories" show_name="You, Me, Empathy" ]
Track Player Shortcodes:
You have two options with the track player shortcodes:
- Highlight the latest episode in your feed. The player will then always show the the most recently published episode from your feed, and works with your RSS feed.
- Highlight a specific episode in your feed. The player will always show that specific episode, and works with a direct .MP3 link.
Here's an example of the highlight the latest episode in your feed:
The above example is pulling from the default RSS feed. If you override your default RSS feed in the shortcode builder, it would look like this:
Here's an example of the highlight a specific episode in your feed:
Note the URL: it ends in .mp3. Make sure yours ends in .mp3.
This is a comprehensive list of all the elements you can add into the shortcode for your full player
[fusebox_full_player], sticky player, and track player
[fusebox_track_player]. Note: “default display” means this is what will happen if you do nothing.
