WordPress Shortcode-Helper

Make your shortcodes easy to use for everyone. Doesn't matter how many or how complex they are.

WordPress Shortcode-Helper is a plugin that helps you to make your shortcodes easier for clients. Make them avialble through a dropdown-list in the WordPress-Editor.

Features include:

  • Unlimited shortcodes
  • Comes without annoying standard shortcodes
  • Choose your own description for every code
  • Multiple input-fields for attributes
  • Many settings to provide the best UI for your shortcodes

Comming soon:

  • Edit shortcodes using the WordPress backend
  • Multilingual descriptions
  • More input-fields
  • Any ideas?

First, you activate the plugin and create a json-file in the root of your template-folder or in the plugin-folder (standard directory is the root of your template-folder but you can change this in the settings of the plugin). This file contains the information about every shortcode with its attributes and descriptions. Then, the plugin creates a dropdown in your editor with the list of all available codes. That's it!
