To really unlock the power of WordPress you can use short codes to quickly and easily add content to your blog. WordPress comes with built in short codes you can use to insert posts, list posts, videos, galleries, and much more! You can use them in your theme to quickly display your most popular or most recent posts.
With WordPress shortcodes you can take your blogging to a whole new level!
Think of it like a shortcut to keep from having to add a lot of html or code to your posts. You will just add the shortcode immediately before where you want the file or data to be placed and close the shortcode like you would with html;
