Three ways are provided to insert the shortcode. The value "xxxxxx" represents your Gist ID, and "name" is the filename of the file within the Gist.

  • Insert [gist id="xxxxxx" file="name"] manually.
  • By using the HTML Editor shortcode button.
  • By pressing ctrl+alt+g. *You can place these shortcodes in pages, posts or any custom content.
