Vertical box

On this page, the ASA 2 managed template “Vertical_box” is used. This template has a narrow design optimized to use in column layouts, tables or sidebars. It is inspired by the “Text and Image” type of Amazon’s link builder.


This first example is built with the following shortcode:

LEGO Star Wars Imperial Shuttle Tydirium

Shortcode options

Besides the general settings, it is possible to overwrite template options per shortcode.

For example, to use a lightbox image effect instead of the globally configured imgpreview effect, this shortcode would make the difference:

Or to change the title color, use option “title_color”:
Option Type Values Description
button_target string
  • "shop" (Shop page)
  • "buy" (Buy page)
Button target
image_effect string
  • "0" (None, no linking at all)
  • "lightbox" (Add lightbox tag and link to large version)
  • "imgpreview" (Image preview to large version on mouse hover)
  • "link_to_shoppage" (Image links to shop page)
Image effect
title_link_to_shop_page bool "yes" / "no" Title links to shop page
