Depending on the email template hook/action, only the available shortcodes will be shown that are supported for that action.  Many actions/hooks support every shortcode you see above, as well as all custom fields, etc.  Conditional shortcodes are available in ALL email templates.  Supported shortcodes will be listed both in a sidebar and meta box when editing/creating an email template.

Conditional Shortcodes

Please see the 2.7.0 Release Blog Post for examples and details on how to use the IF shortcode, which includes MANY additional features not listed here.

  • Integrated [if METAKEY] shortcode
    • The if shortcode allows you to create if statements, to only output values, or text included inside the statement, if the meta key has a value.

  • Integrated [each METAKEY] shortcode
    • The [each] meta key allows you to create a loop through shortcodes/meta keys that have multiple values, and customize how each one is output.

Standard Shortcode Arguments (Features)

The arguments below can be added in the opening shortcode tag, based on your preference.  Multiple arguments can be specified in a shortcode.  All this information is available in the help tab on the edit template page.

  • before – String to output after field value (and label), if there is one.
    • example:

      job_salary

      before

      =

      “$”

      ]

  • after – String to output behind/after the value (if there is one)
    • example:

      ]

  • divider – Customize the string used for building the divider (see advanced below), default is -

      divider

      repeat

      =

      “12”

      ]

  • order – Customize order of shortcode output and arguments. In the example below, we move before in front of top_divider.
    • default order is:
      top_divider,before,content,label,value,after,bottom_divider

      [

      job_salary

      divider

      before

      =

      ]

  • separator – Customize the separator used for any multiple field types (saved as array), such as file (multiple), and taxonomy field types.

      job_category

      separator

      =

      “<br>”

      job_title  and
      job_file .
    • example: 

      [

      job_fields

      skip_keys

More Details

Requires PHP 5.3+ 
5.2 has been unsupported since 2011, there’s really no reason anybody should still be running 5.2, and if your hosting company is, you should tell them to upgrade immediately!

All emails are executed through WordPress Actions & Filters.  If there is a filter or action in one of the supported plugins you would like added to this plugin, please open a support ticket and let me know and I will add it (or if you know PHP you can with the filters/actions already in this plugin codebase).
