Blocks » Shortcode Block

shortcode is a WordPress-specific code that lets you do nifty things with very little effort. Shortcodes can embed files or create objects that would normally require lots of complicated, ugly code in just one line. Shortcode = shortcut.

The shortcode block can be added to a page by clicking on the Add Block button. It can be found in Widgets section. Alternatively, you can type /shortcode and press enter.
