PHP Shortcode Help Needed!

I’m just getting into PHP and really don’t know much. I’m trying to figure out how to create a shortcode tag. I’m not sure if that is the correct term for it but below is what I’m talking about.

I want this:

<?php echo $myVariable; ?>

… to look something like this:




Is there a simple way to do this with PHP code? Any help would be appreciated!

Or <?=$someVariable?>
(requires short_open_tag to be enabled in php.ini, which it is by default)

Simply do this


echo "{$myVariable}";


Thanks for the tip [COLOR=#336633][B]felgall[/B][/COLOR]

The {} are superfluous in that statement since $myVariable and {$myVariable} are two different ways of specifying a variable reference within a “” string.

If you actually want to have the {} appear around the content you’d need


echo "{{$myVariable}}";


Thanks guys. I realized that I won’t be able to do what I was hoping to do, but thanks for help.
