Heroic Shortcodes reference for KnowAll

This guide is for use with the Heroic Shortcodes plugin, included with the KnowAll theme.

Note that Heroic Shortcodes has been retired, please see the notes on the Heroic Blocks replacement plugin. Heroic Shortcodes and this documentation will remain in the KnowAll package for a short while for legacy support. Customers are encouraged to transition to Heroic Blocks.

For most uses, you can use the visual Heroic Shortcodes button, available in the visual editor when editing content such as articles.


It’s possible to manually edit the shortcodes after they’ve been inserted or copy and paste shortcodes between content.

This guide covers each shortcode, the available options for manual editing. Please note the brackets and quotes as the shortcode will not be displayed correctly if these are not correctly placed.

The front end visual examples for each of these shortcodes can be found on the Shortcodes Page on the KnowAll demo.

Gutenberg Support

Gutenberg support is something we are working towards as it matures and is added to WordPress core.

In the meantime, Heroic Shortcodes work using the Classic block. Simply select the Heroic Shortcodes icon above the editor in the Classic block, or use the shortcodes directly as above.
