HOW TO CAPTURE THE AUDIENCE’S INTERESTS?

Croct can help you understand your audience’s interests based on posts and pages they visit. All you need to do is tell Croct what interests are related to each post in the section “Croct – User Interest” (on the sidebar menu, under Document) when publishing or updating a post. You can enter multiple interests separated by commas.

HOW TO INSERT DYNAMIC CONTENT?

This plugin introduces two new shortcodes that allow you to create personalized posts.

The [personalized] shortcode works as a placeholder for contextual information, while the [if] shortcode allows you to show a content block conditionally.

The following example shows a conditional content block that will be displayed only for people who are sailing from Brazil. The content of the block is personalized according to the visitor’s city, with fallback to “Brazil” in case the visitor’s location is unknown.

[if condition=”location’s country is ‘BR'”]
This paragraph is personalized for everyone who lives in [personalized value=”location’s city”]Brazil[/personalized].
[/if]

Although the example shows the use of the [personalized] and [if] shortcodes combined, they can be used standalone. For example:

Hello everyone from [personalized value="location's city"]Brazil[/personalized]!
