With this tutorial, we will create a shortcode that will return the results of a WordPress query.

We will be creating a add_shortcode shortcode that will contain the shortcode name and function as parameters.
With this example, we will call a query for a Video post type sorted by number of likes.

We edited the get option inside the shortcode if you have options. Then we run the new WP_Query.

// Creation du shortcode permettant de lister la liste des videos classées par nombre de likes
add_shortcode( 'viavideoslikes', 'via_videos_list_likes_shortcode' );
function via_videos_list_likes_shortcode( $atts ) {
	$options = get_option('via_video_name');
	$query = new WP_Query( array(
		'post_type'            => 'viavideos',
		'meta_key'             => '_post_like_count',
		'orderby'              => 'meta_value_num',
        'order'                => 'DESC',
		'posts_per_page'       => -1,
		) );
	if ( $query-&gt;have_posts() ) { 
	<?php while ( $query->have_posts() ) : $query->the_post(); ?>

        // Afficher ici votre contenu dynamique dans vos contenants div

	<?php endwhile; wp_reset_postdata(); ?>
	<?php $myvariable = ob_get_clean();
	return $myvariable;
