Shortcode options

Besides the general customization settings, it is possible to overwrite these settings per shortcode.

For example, to use a lightbox image effect instead of the globally configured imgpreview effect, this shortcode would make the difference:

[asa2 tpl="Vertical_box" image_effect="lightbox"]0744016312[/asa2]

Or to change the title color, use option “title_color”:

[asa2 tpl="Vertical_box" title_color="darkblue"]0744016312[/asa2]
