Codex / mycred/game / Shortcodes / mycred_lottery_quickpick


This shortcode allows quick purchases of lottery entries with or without a custom price. You can for example use this shortcode for a “Quickpick” feature for “pick numbers” lotteries where the lottery will pick x numbers randomly for your user.

Furthermore this shortcode allows you to set a custom price for entering the lottery. If the price is set for the shortcode then the user will be charged this amount each time they click on the button. Note that the shortcode is bound by the same rules as you setup for your lottery, so if you have selected to exclude certain users or limit entries, these rules will be enforced by this shortcode as well.

Requires the Lottery add-on to be installed and enabled.

Available since version 1.2.2
