Shortcodes Used Within Carrot

A shortcode is a tool that is used to allow you to add information to content without duplicating efforts or to easily format your site. We have a few shortcodes that you can use within your site to insert information from your site’s company settings and other content.

The columns shortcode is a fantastic tool to be used if you are looking to use columns. The below columns are used by grabbing chunks of two side by side bracketed items, then inserting the details you want in a column between the two bracketed items.

[twocol_one] [/twocol_one] [twocol_one_last] [/twocol_one_last] – This is a code for two side-by-side columns.
[threecol_one] [/threecol_one] [threecol_one] [/threecol_one] [threecol_one_last] [/threecol_one_last] – This is a code for three side-by-side columns.
