Generating Screenshots with code

If you want to create screenshots in a theme using this plugin then you can do so using the BrowserShots::get_shot method.

For example:

<img src="<?php echo BrowserShots::get_shot( 'https://prothemedesign.com', 600, 450 ); ?>" />

Keep in mind that the plugin must be installed and activated for this to work.

The get_shot method has 3 parameters.

  1. The url.
  2. The width.
  3. The height.

The other parameters, from the shotcode, can be implemented manually when outputting the html.

Multisite Compatibility

The Browser Shots plugin is compatibly with WordPress Multisite, just use the Network Activate feature to enable the shortcode on every site. If you only want to enable the shortcode for a specific site, activate the plugin for that site only.
