- Download the latest version of the plugin from the WordPress Plugin Directory
- After opening the downloaded archive, upload the
shortcode.phpfile to the
wp-content/plugins/directory of your WordPress installation
- Activate the plugin through the plugin menu
In modern versions of WordPress, it’s possible to download, install and activate plugins from within the admin area. Just search for “Shortcode”.
Using the plugin is as simple as adding any of the shortcodes in this list to your blog posts and/or pages (to make sure that the shortcodes are properly identified, use WordPress’s HTML editor instead of the visual editor).
When you are done inserting the shortcodes you want to use, save the changes to your posts and/or pages and things should start working straight away.
