Using shortcodes

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

You don’t have to know Shortcodes list, syntax or available parameters, if you decide to create your website content using shortcode generator, which you can find in your window toolbar. Generator allows you to simply put your images, text and other content to input fields and choose display options from self-explanatory boxes.

In shortcode generator you will find shortcodes for any page content element that you can see on the demo page.

Below you will find description for a few basic shortcodes types, which should give you an idea of ​​the shortcodes possibilities.


Page structure elements: columns, rows, spacers are shortcodes – check Structure section with shortcodes, which help you to create your page grid. Layout generator can be very useful here.

Do you want to add to your page sections headers, blockquotes, a list or simply a link? In section Typography you will find all options available in Brick to format text elements.


If you want to put any element to let your users contact or follow you or your profile inside your page content, you will find that in Contact shortcode section. You can easily configure elements like: Google Map, Contact form, Newsletter Form, Social buttons and put them anywhere on your page.


Our themes come with several types of sliders. You can see preview for them on demo page. All available sliders are always in Sliders the section of shortcode generator.

In the shortcode generator you can find also several types for buttons, boxes, portfolio items, bars and other elements. We encourage you to experiment with all available options.


Using widgets

(WARNING:The image below is only an example of how the Widget section might look like. Depending on the theme this option’s content might look different.)

Widgets are small blocks of content, which you can find in theme footer or sidebar. They were originally designed to provide a simple and easy-to-use way of giving design and structure control of the WordPress Theme to the user, which is now available on WordPress Themes to include the header, footer, and elsewhere in the WordPress design and structure. Widgets require no code experience or expertise. They can be added, removed, and rearranged on the WordPress Administration Appearance > Widgets panel.

Just drag and drop the widgets you want, into the right hand side where your sidebars and footer widgets are listed. Simply drag your widgets over to the sidebar or footer column, and then populate the content.
There are various fields and settings you can choose for each individual widget and all are self explanatory. You can also use multiple widgets per footer column, just drag and drop them into place. And you can put as many widgets as you want inside sidebar. Once you have finished populating the widgets, always make sure to hit the Save button to save the settings.

Just drag widget from the left hand side and drop it on the right
