Hi all!

How would I go about calling a command (tag?) from within the WYSIWYG editor, in order to place a CMS menu within the page content. EG, in the way that placing "$UserDefinedForm" within the page content editor places the form where you want it to go, and lets you have text above and below it?

I have a menu within the template that currently sits below the $Content tag, but i'd like to be able to call it from within the actual content so that I can decide precisely where it goes, eg something like:

This is my heading

Some content


Some more content

Hope this makes sense - struggling to explain it!

Cheers, L x

Brilliant thanks Will! I just didn't know what terms to search for to find this info. Short codes will do exactly what I need, but the str_replace is good to be aware of too. Cheers :-)
