Ad: Bluehost hosting

Spotlighter is a powerful tool that will help you to divert/guide the readers attention in various ways. With Spotlighter you can convert the content to Modal-esque Boxes & Highlighted Text (as seen in the live preview link).

Creating the spotlights is pretty simple, and requires no prior knowledge in any coding language. Its done either using the shortcode generator, or simple [spotlight] shortcode.

How does it work ?

With Spotlighter you can convert parts of your post/page’s content to ‘switches’ that toggle a spotlights/highlights on other parts of the content.

It basically means that clicking on those ‘Switches’ will highlight or spotlight other parts of the content (that you choose).

Plenty of examples can be seen in the Live Preview.

Example Uses
