    Install the plugin, entered all settings.
    And I do not understand where to insert this code.
    Tell us on the steps where you have to stick this code.

    Hi Denis,

    The shortcode you got from Shortcode page (, you can place them in your page or post content area.

    Currently that’s all is needed for the initial setup when you have created the shortcode.

    I am using the Divi theme. Exactly where do I go to place the code? I have a page already created and am not understanding where the code goes.

    Hi Didi,

    First can you let me know where you want to keep the masonry layout ? In you home page or inner pages.

    Also if you feel comfortable, please do send us your wp-admin details at info (AATT) masonrylayout (d00T) com and the location you want to place. We will setup it for you.

    PLEASE : Don’t send any details here as it is a public forum.

    So I went and created

    [wmls name="mason" id="1"]

    but I don’t know how to apply this piece of code. to what?

    I’m using Highwind theme and I wish for all my posts to be in masonry style.

    Hi Mick,

    Our Pro version and Lite version works the same way. So no much difference in the installation.

    Now you have got the shortcode. Please keep this in your page where you want to get masonry layout.

    I’ve come to the conclusion, tell me if I’m wrong,
    that this is impossible to do in normal blog homepage,
    which lists all the blog posts
    ,but one must create new page,
    and put it as static front page in order to have posts display like this.

    And this doesn’t pick up original theme’s css but has it’s own style.

    Hi Mick,

    I must say you are right but you just have some incomplete information.

    You can also keep it in normal home page, if you want to try it in theme files you can keep the shortcode like this way

    < ?php echo do_shortcode('[SHORTCODE HERE]'); ?>

    Hope this helps.

    What I want to know is where am I getting these shortcodes from? Am I creating them, because I’m looking for an easy plugin to change the layout of my blog that came with the theme I bought. I dont have the knowledge of creating shortcode, etc.

    Hi Shanna,

    Please check this document. And in no. 3 there, you can have the instructions to create shortcode.

    Creating a shortcode is important for this plugin to run. This is from where the plugin knows your preferences and shows the post as per it.

    Can you please clear this ? If portfolio is a different page in your site, please keep that shortcode in portfolio page from your wordpress editor. It it is on home page, edit that static page and place it.

    You should choose post for your blog post.

    Hi Surekha,

    You can just place that code in wordpress editor. For the placement, it depends upon your requirement. You can keep and check for that.
