I have a page which has several "Video" dataobjects related to it..
I can insert a list of video titles into the page by placing the following in the page template:
<% control Videos %>
<% end_control %>
However, I wish to insert the list using a shortcode, so that it is possible to position the list anywhere within the page content.
I have setup the shortcode, but the $VideoTitle variable does not appear to work within the shortcode template. Only the <p> tags are pulled in.
How can I get the $VideoTitle variable to work within the shortcode template?
(I have simplifed the HTML code for this example, I'm actually inserting a full video thumbnail, title etc, but that's not neccecary for the question).

Thanks Johannes, that was actually that tutorial I followed to implement the ShortCodes, but I could never get object variables to work inside of the shortcode template, have you managed to get this to work?

I'm not quite sure what you mean by object variable.
If you wan't to use $VideoTitle in your template you need to set it like this:
$data = array();
$data['VideoTitle'] = "What ever";
return $template->process(new ArrayData($data));
Is that what you are looking for?
