Broadcast is a powerful call to action (CTA) management plugin that allows you to easy manage and display CTAs within your WordPress content.
A simple solution for a real-world problem – Broadcast allows you to rapidly create call to actions and customize the look and feel of each CTA using layout templates.
The following Broadcast examples are samples of what can be accomplished with the plugin.
This example takes the default layout and creates a responsive CTA displayed within a content area.
This example will insert a newsletter signup form directly into the content area of the page.
🔥 Stay tuned – We have more example coming very soon!
Broadcast is integrated with the front-end of your website using WordPress shortcodes. Shortcodes allow for CTAs to be inserted into content anywhere on your site – from the content editor and widgets zones to directly inside of .php templates within your theme.
The screenshot below shows you how to build you own custom Broadcast shortcode inside of WordPress.
|cta||The ID of the call to action. Default = null|
|layout||The ID of the layout to use for rendering the call to action. Default = null|
|align||The alignment of the call to action on the screen (left/center/right). Default = ’left′|
|width||The width (in percentage) of the call to action. Default = ’50′|
|classes||Attach custom classes to the Broadcast CTA container. Default = null|
Example Broadcast Shortcode
[broadcast cta="25935" layout="25936" align="center" width="60" classes="my-class"]
Layouts are used to display call to action content on the front-end of your website. They typically contain a mixture of HTML, PHP and core WordPress functions such as the_title(), the_content(), the_post_thumbnail() etc.
Layouts are essentially templates that allow you to style and display your call to action content to your visitors. One feature of using layouts for displaying data is you can reuse the same CTA across your website but style the CTA differently by creating a unique layouts for a specific placement.
Broadcast is beautifully integrated with WordPress – check out some admin screenshots below.
The Broadcast dashboard/settings pages allows for updating of global plugin settings and building of a custom Broadcast shortcode.
