What is this plugin and why do I need it?
The StagTools provides extra functionality to any WordPress theme. It includes shortcode builder, font icons and several widgets along with custom post types (only for Codestag Themes). This plugin is not requirement to use Codestag themes however it extends the theme functionality.
Can I insert shortcodes manually instead of using shortcode generator?
Yes; although we have a shortcode builder you can also see a list of all available shortcodes and use it manually in any supported area.
Can I use this plugin with other themes?
The StagTools was developed to work with any WordPress theme as it includes default styling. However, we provide our extra bit of styling to all of our themes at Codestag.
Why shortcodes are prefixed with stag_ ?
Simply to avoid any conflict with other shortcodes on your site enabled via any third-party plugin or theme.
I love this plugin! Can I contribute?
