‘Book Tickets’ Button Shortcode


If your website is already packed full of reviews, blog posts, and juicy theatre gossip then you may want to just pop a ‘Book Tickets’ button on one of you existing pages, rather than linking people through to the product page first.  Or perhaps you want to create a booking link for a product that isn’t imported on your website.

Well, the London Theatre Direct WordPress plugin has a solution for that.  The plugin has a built-in ‘Shortcode’ builder for making buttons that you can put on any post, page or widget.  Just select the product you’d like to link directly to and add the button text.  Then copy the shortcode and paste in anywhere on your WordPress website.

If you want to find out more about shortcodes, you can read up on the WordPress documentation.
