  • Scan widget wizard to generate the shortcode with the options you need.


Manual installation:

  1. Upload the folder scancircle to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the scancircle plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Place the [scancircle ...] or [scancircle_results ...] shortcode in your posts


How can I change the styling of the scan button or the text?

See this post in the ScanCircle partner forum

What is the [scancircle_results …] shortcode for?

Using this shortcode, you can show the results in an IFRAME on your own website.
1. Set the « Own results page » to e.g.
2. On this page include the shortcode [scancircle_results partner= »PARTNER-CODE » param= »URL-PARAMETER » IFRAME-ATTRIBUTES], where
– PARTNER-CODE is your partner code (this prevents cross site scripting with non-ScanCircle URLs: only http(s)://… allowed)
– URL-PARAMETER is the URL parameter containing the results URL (in this example « advice »)
– IFRAME-ATTRIBUTES are optional IFRAME attributes (e.g. width= »X », height= »Y »)

Can I use the shortcodes in a template?

Yes, but you need the do_shortcode function as in: <?php echo do_shortcode(‘[scancircle…]’); ?>>

2.0 – 2020-07-23

  • Added shortcode [scancircle_results partner= »PARTNER-CODE » param= »URL-PARAMETERS » IFRAME-ATTRIBUTES]

1.43 – 2018-11-14

  • Load ScanCircle JavaScript using wp_enqueue_script to ensure jQuery is loaded (if needed)

1.32 – 2015-12-16

  • Generalized the plugin to cater for future options so new options do not require a new version of the plugin.
  • The [phpvar] shortcode has been deprecated as there are standard ways and plugins to do this (functionality will remain for the time being)

1.31 – 2015-11-02

  • For some reason, version 1.27 actually still used v1.24. Updated version number to force a new update and updated support to WP4.3.1.

1.27 – 2015-03-23

  • Changed https option to load scancircle.js using HTTPS by default unless https=0 is specified. Link to partner environment always uses HTTP (only used if JavaScript is not loaded correctly)

1.24 – 2014-10-13

  • Load scancircle.js and/or link to partner environment using https, https option added to select which: 2=both, 1=JavaScript only, 0=none (default)

1.23 – 2014-08-04

  • category option added to indicate the purpose of the scan page and/or reference code, entered data will be prepended to the reference code (separated by a colon)

1.20 – 2013-11-18

  • inputs option added to support multiple input fields (names separated by semicolon), entered data will be joined (separated by semicolons)
  • validation option added to check input field for required data, e-mail address, phone number, any regular expression or using a custom function
  • require option now deprecated (converted to prompt option and validation="required" for backward compatibility)
  • jquery option added to run script when document.ready (mainly for Joomla web sites which requires tag in header)

1.19 – 2013-11-04

  • Added [phpvar] shortcode to retrieve the PHP superglobals $_GET, $_POST and $_SERVER
  • Required to get the value of URL parameters, post variables, initiating web pages, etc.
  • Added because they may be needed for ScanCircle and I could not find an easy way or simple plugin to achieve this

1.18 – 2013-10-07

  • First release
