Shortcodes are just that, short bits of code that cut down on repetitive strings of HTML, and can be inserted anywhere in your site.

For instance, you could create a shortcode to insert a call to action button, or to display a Google AdSense ad, or to create 3 columns of content without any HTML markup.

What do shortcodes look like?

A shortcode is a descriptive bit of text wrapped in square brackets, e.g. [adsense] – which could be dropped into your WordPress post to display a block of Google ads.

Definition of "Shortcodes" by Chat GPT: Shortcodes are special codes used in web development and content management systems to perform certain functions or display specific content on a website. They are typically enclosed in square brackets, such as [example_shortcode], and can be used to embed multimedia, execute functions, or display dynamic content without the need for complex coding. Shortcodes are a convenient way for users to add functionality to their websites without directly editing the code.
