CSS GALLERY SHORTCODE
For displaying the gallery of a category, you must add a new page/post with the proper shorcode. Add a new page or post and type of copy/page (personally, i have saved the shortcodes as snippets. You don’t need to remember them!):
This is the simple version of this shortcode, there are some additional attributes:
sites_per_page (default 9 post per page)
no_pagination, accepts values true or false and if true it disables the pagination! The default is false.
NOMINEE FORM SHORTCODE
This is a simple one, you just add a page of post and use the shortcode [nominee_form] and save! So simple!
