    All [QueryQuery] shortcodes have defaults set on install. Those defaults can be seen in the last column within the table under the "Default" tab. Each of these Default values can be overridden with corrisponding admin values. These defaults or override values function as "Global" when using [QueryQuery] shortcode. Any shortcode variables you place within a [QueryQuery] shortcode override admin values for that specific instance of the [QueryQuery] shortcode tag. Avalible shortcode values for [QueryQuery] shortcode are listed with the correct spelling on this same "Default" tab page. /assets/admin-default.png

How do the queries work?

All queries are base off of the WP_Query loop. This makes the call easy to access via a short code with overrieds.

All calls match up directly with what the name is in the WP documentation and Variable names are listed in the QueryQuery Defaults section.
