    Shortcodes

    Demonstration of all shortcodes and some possible configurations. See documentation for more details.

    Story Actions Shortcode

    Renders the action row of the specified story. All buttons and links will work as if on the story post, aside from the sharing modal which always refers to the current page. This only works on pages with the “Story Page” template set and is intended to create a single-story-centric front page.

    • story_id (*): The ID of the story.
    • class: Additional CSS classes, separated by whitespace.
    • follow: Whether to render the Follow button (if enabled). Default true.
    • reminder: Whether to render the Reminder button (if enabled). Default true.
    • subscribe: Whether to render the Subscribe button (if enabled). Default true.
    • download: Whether to render the ePUB/eBook download button (if enabled). Default true.
    • rss: Whether to render the RSS link (if enabled). Default true.
    • share: Whether to render the Share modal button (if enabled). Default true.

    [fictioneer_story_actions story_id="182" follow="0" reminder="0" share="0"]

    Story Section Shortcode

    Renders the chapters, groups, and tabs of the specified story. It will look just as if on the story post. This only works on pages with the “Story Page” template set and is intended to create a single-story-centric front page.

    • story_id (*): The ID of the story.
    • class: Additional CSS classes, separated by whitespace.
    • tabs: Whether to render the tabs (if any). Default false.
    • blog: Whether to render the blog tab. Default false.
    • pages: Whether to render the custom page tabs. Default false.
    • scheduled: Whether to render the scheduled chapter note. Default false.

    3. The Little Girl
      2,467 Words
    [fictioneer_story_section story_id="182" tabs="1" pages="1"]

    This is an extra page attached to the story. You can add up to four pages with any content here, provided you also fill out the Short Name property. As you can see, there is not much space for the tabs, so take that into account. Although they can wrap without breaking the layout, it does not quite look as good.

    Ideas:

    • Artworks (or memes)
    • Lore and history
    • Character portfolios (meh)
    • Timeline
    • Glossary
    • Related works

    Story Comments Shortcode

    Renders the button to load the collective comments made on chapters in the story. Not to be confused with the comments you can make on the page, which are completely separate. This only works on pages with the “Story Page” template set and is intended to create a single-story-centric front page.

    • story_id (*): The ID of the story.
    • class: Additional CSS classes, separated by whitespace.
    • header: Whether to render the heading with count. Default true.

    Renders a single datum from the specified story, such as the word count or age rating. You can use this to show your own self-updating statistics. Just omit the shortcode block and write it directly into the text.

    • data (*): The requested data, singular. Choose between word_count, chapter_count, status, icon (status), age_rating, rating_letter, comment_count, id, date, time, datetime, categories, tags, genres, fandoms, characters, and warnings.

      2.12 – providence or atoms: First, we retraced our steps. More accurately, Raine retraced our steps and led me in her wake. She left no question as to who was going first, back through the double-doors to the corridor of Not-Willow-House. A familiar transformation came over her – watchful, alert, tense. My hand felt clammy in hers, my heart in my throat. In the fake corridors she eased each set of doors open with the tip of her boot, waited for any nasty surprises to jump out at us before proceeding. The Medieval Metaphysics room was gone. As was the back staircase and all the windows; each set of internal double-doors led to another identical stretch of whitewashed corridor, with four classroom doors on each wall and a noticeboard full of philosophy department flyers.…

      The Little Girl: In the perfectly ideal world that Sophie thought she lived in, she reached her destination without any delays or any inconveniences and was back in the mansion in less than an hour. In the world Sophie actually lived in, she got absolutely lost. She walked and walked and walked, her map effortlessly floating before her, and the more she walked, the more lost she felt. The map—a worn-out thing Flint had fetched from inside an old desk—was doing little to help as well. Words were blurred, streets were crossed out, and many other inconveniences littered the aged document. Such was her trouble trying to decipher the map, she missed out on the many sights the grand city offered. The vagrant snoring away on the street, three giggling children poking…

      05 – Cheshire Cat: Days later, Nadia stepped out of the Pass out From Exhaustion Suite cursing the late-afternoon sunlight. The suite had really been earning its name lately. She shuffled along, wiping her eyes, legs stiff and screaming with every motion. “Look who’s up!” Tess said, far too cheerily. She was at one of her workbenches, wearing huge safety goggles as she did…something. Nadia’s eyes were too weak just yet. She fumbled around at one of her desks, having already given up on coffee—it was never strong enough. Instead she popped open a can of something vile and green, one of those saccharine energy drinks Tess loved so much. She chanced a sip, grimaced, then gulped more down. Bitter and nasty, hiding badly behind tawdry sweetness. But it was…

It will live on and on, in the memories of those around you, in the dozens upon dozens of little echoes you left in your old apartment, in the corner of the local bar, in the scars you left while living on Earth.  Two people sit at a bus stop. What they look like isn’t important. Neither are their names.  The one on the left holds a paper in their left hand, the thin sheet gently folding in their grip. The one on the right is drumming their right-hand fingers on the bench’s armrest, the rhythmic tapping a soothing lullaby.  Their free hands rest at their sides on the bench, their fingers merely inches away…
