[ubc_delicious_results]
[ubc_delicious_results limit=20 defaulttag='' defaultuser='' useor='false' view='list'  sort='rank' pagination=0]

This is a required shortcode, for if it is not on the page, how does the results know where to show up? It also sets a bunch of required fields that the other shortcode uses.

  • defaultuser* - (string)determines which account gets queried, if left blank the query will fail
  • useor -
    • false - (default) all tags will be combined in a “and” query
    • true - all tags will be “or’d”
  • view -
    • list - (default)displays results in a unordered list (aliases include list_unordered)
    • list_ordered - displays results in an ordered list
    • links - displays anchors separated by br tag
  • sort - what kind of sorting to the returned results will be applied to
    • rank - (default)displays results sorted by top saved link in delicious
    • alpha - display results sorted alphabetically by link title
    • none - displays results ordered by whatever is sent to the plugin from delicious
  • showcomments - shows the comments of each resource pulled from delicious
    • true - (default)either the string true or anything but the string false will display the comments of each delicious resource
    • false - either the string false or empty string will produce a false result

NOTES

  • all pages that use search/checkbox/dropdown must have only one [ubc_delicious_results]
  • any filtering shortcodes (search/checkbox/dropdown) can be used by itself
  • if you want to combine search with filtering shortcodes (dropdown/checkbox), then put it inside the search shortcode
  • [ubc_delicious_results_once] can be used as many times as you want on a page
