Shortcode to include images from Screenshot Machine in your content.

Use the ssm shortcode in your content with the following arguments:

  • key="{customer key}"
  • url="{url}"
  • dimension="{width x height}" (default is 120x90)
  • device="{desktop|phone|tablet}" (default is desktop)
  • format="{jpg|png|gif}" (default is jpg)
  • days="{cache expiration}" (default is 14)
  • wait="{wait in ms}" (default is 200)
  • title="{href title}"
  • link="{yes|no}" (default is yes)
  • target="{frame name}" (default is _blank)
  • refresh="{yes|no}" (default is yes)

You can find the {customer key} on your Screenshot Machine customer profile.

The {url} is the web page URL you want to capture in the screenshot.

Example dimension values:

  • 320x240 - screenshot size 320x240 pixels
  • 800x600 - screenshot size 800x600 pixels
  • 1024x768 - screenshot size 1024x768 pixels
  • 1920x1080 - screenshot size 1920x1080 pixels
  • 1024xfull - full page screenshot with width equals to 1024 pixels (can be pretty long)

Example device and dimension values:

  • device="desktop" and dimension="1024x768" - desktop screenshot with size 1024x768 pixels
  • device="phone" and dimension="480x800" - mobile phone screenshot with size 480x800 pixels
  • device="tablet" and dimension="800x1280" - tablet screenshot with size 800x1280 pixels

The format {jpeg|png|gif} is an image format to use for the screenshot (default is jpg).

The {cache expiration} is a number of days a screenshot should be used before a new one is created (default is 14).

The {wait in ms} is a number of milliseconds to wait before capturing the screenshot (default is 200).

The {href title} is a title text for the image alt and title attributes.

The link {yes|no} value will determine if the image is linked to the web page URL or not.

The target {frame name} default value opens the link in a new window/tab. An empty string, "_self", "_top", "_parent", or an HTML frame name are also valid values.

The refresh {yes|no} value includes javascript to retry the image every second until it's available (for a maximum of 10 seconds).
