What is a slug or short code?

slug is nothing more than a few words, which you choose, to describe a post, page, category, or tag within WordPress. These words then appear as part of the URL (or Permalink) directing visitors to that content.

Shortcodes simplify the addition of features to a WordPress site.
Galleries, videos, pictures, grids, tiles and various other functionality would require a lot of code editing.
By using shortcodes the HTML and other markup is added dynamically directly into the post or page where the user wants them to appear.

How to build a Shortcode

To create or modify a shortcode, we have made an easy way to do it with the [Grid WUD] button.
