In this section we learn how to refer to shortcodes literally (escaping) and briefly discuss the various technical, niche shortcodes available at TutnIQ.

• Escaping shortcodes

If you need to refer to a literal shortcode (i.e. without the shortcode being processed) we recommend that you use Markdown inline code snippets and code blocks.

For example, if we wanted to refer to the [table] shortcode in a code snippet, we could simply enclose the code snippet with back ticks (  ). Typed as: [table].

No special escaping is required when referring to shortcodes in Markdown code snippets or blocks.

There are other ways of escaping shortcodes, however, we do not recommend their use as:

• We told you not to! (What works today might not work tomorrow because of changes to our software - we will not warn you if we change undocumented features).
• TutnIQ only supports shortcodes in tutorial / course textblocks, FAQ answers and glossary defininitions - Markdown can be more widely used.
• Undocumented "features" or methods may be buggy.
• Other shortcodes

TutnIQ offers a number of shortcodes which serve niche or technical purposes

Compatibility with other shortcode API's

Our shortcode API is based on that of Wordpress, but may deviate where necessary to meet the needs of the TutnIQ platform.
