How to customize resulting posts with built in shortcodes?

You can use the following shortcodes in post title and content editing:

How to work with 'Random Sentence Generator'?

You can use the Random Sentence Generator by inserting list of sentences to the 'First List of Possible Sentences (%%random_sentence%%)' text field. Here, you can add full sentences, or sentences with variables. Variables are structured as: %something. A possible list of sentences can be:

You can define variables in the 'List of Possible Variables:' textfield. Here you can define values to variables, values which will be used in the random sentence forming. Variables can be defined as follows:
variable_name1 => variable_value1;variable_value2;variable_value3

variable_name2 => variable2_value1;variable2_value2;variable2_value3
You can also use variables in variable definition. Example:
noun_with_adjective => %noun;%adjective %noun
An example of variable definition:
adjective_very => %adjective;very %adjective;

adjective => clever;interesting;smart;huge;astonishing;unbelievable;nice;adorable;beautiful;elegant;fancy;glamorous;magnificent;helpful;awesome

noun_with_adjective => %noun;%adjective %noun

noun => plugin;WordPress plugin;item;ingredient;component;constituent;module;add-on;plug-in;addon;extension

nouns => plugins;WordPress plugins;items;ingredients;components;constituents;modules;add-ons;plug-ins;addons;extensions

love_it => love;adore;like;be mad for;be wild about;be nuts about;be crazy about

family => %adjective %family_members;%family_members

family_members => grandpa;brother;sister;mom;dad;grandma

sentence_ending => .;!;!!
These random sentences can be used in post titles or post content, by adding the %%random_sentence%% or %%random_sentence2%% shortcode.
