If you have a WordPress website or are thinking of setting one up, taking Rentle in to use is easy.

The steps are the following:

  1. After adding WordPress to your website go to the plugin section and search for Rentle. Install and activate the plugin by pressing the button in the top right corner of the plugin.

2. Go in WordPress to an existing page or create a new one

3. Click on add section and either using Gutenberg blocks add the Rentle shop block or a shortcode. The needed shortcode is [rentle_shop].

Using Gutenberg blocks

Only shop id is mandatory in order to use the Rentle WordPress Plugin. In order to embed a product, shop, location, category and product have to be defined.

The shop id can be found from your own Rentle Account (my.rentle.shop) => Settings => Channels => URL name

  • Location id is the name of the location you want to specify the plugin to use. It can be found from:

1) Your own Rentle Account (my.rentle.shop) => Settings => General => Locations

2) rentle.shop/YOUR_STORENAME => choose your location and then the ID is in the selected location's URL

  • Category id is the id of the category you want to show. It can be found from:

1) Your own Rentle Account (my.rentle.shop) => Products => Categories and then the ID is in the selected category's URL

2) rentle.shop/YOUR_STORENAME => Choose location => choose category and then the ID is in the selected category's URL

  • Product id is the id of the specific product you want to show. It can be found from Your own Rentle Account (my.rentle.shop) => Products and then the ID is in the selected product's URL

  • Padding is the amount of vertical padding of the shop block. It can be one of the following: no-padding, small-padding, medium-padding, large-padding
  • Under the Advanced -section there is a possibility to define additional CSS classes that are applied to the Rentle shop block.

Using shortcode

The attributes of the shortcode uses are:

  • shop
  • location
  • category
  • product
  • padding
  • class ==> if you want to wrap the element to custom class

The shortcode attributes are the same as the ones used for the Gutenberg blocks.

They can be used as an example:

Shop embed:

[rentle_shop shop="rentlelab"]

Category embed:

[rentle_shop shop="rentlelab" location="Rentle HQ" category="2VWYAlqM7t5y172HVMnB"]

Product embed:

[rentle_shop shop="rentlelab" location="Rentle HQ" category="2VWYAlqM7t5y172HVMnB" product="yKNkCC48YDJOmJNyZamu"]
