Currently, in Featured Articles PRO there is only one shortcode: fa_slider. Depending on whether you are using the Lite or PRO version of the plugin, the number of parameters that can be set for this shortcode varies. A basic usage for the shortcode is:

[fa_slider id=”slider_ID” singular=”0″ title=”” show_title=”” width=”500″ height=”300″ font_size=”90″ full_width=”1″ top=”10″ bottom=”10″ show_slide_title=”1″ show_content=”1″ show_date=”0″ show_read_more=”1″ show_play_video=”1″ img_click=”1″ auto_slide=”1″]

Shortcode parameters:

id: the post ID for the slider post type that must be displayed;
singular: display the slider everywhere (0) or display it only on single post pages (1);
title: a custom slider title; please note that some slider themes might not use this;
show_title: display the slider title (1) or hide it (0); please note that some slider themes might not use this;
width: slider width;
height: slider height;
font_size: percentual font size;
full_width: allow slider to cover the entire parent element width (1) or not (0);
top: margin from top that the slider should have;
bottom: bottom margin that the slider should have;
show_slide_title: display slides titles (1) or hide them (0);
show_content: display slides content (1) or hide it (0);
show_date: display slide published date (1) or hide it (0);
show_read_more: display slide read more link (1) or hide it (0);
show_play_video: display slide play video link (1) or hide it (0);
img_click: images are clickable (1);
auto_slide: slider will start sliding automatically (1);

To help manage all the above shortcode options, the plugin implements a visual interface when editing posts using the visual editor.
