ShortCodes UI
[resolved] Multisite settings option and Shortcodes in shortcode option (3 posts)

    I like this plugin for everything except that it does not have global network settings.
    What I mean by this is instead of having to create shortcodes and settings per site, an option to create global shortcodes that can be used in posts on all sites network wide. Even an option to make a particular snippet global(a check box to tick when creating shortcode?)

    A good example or this type of plugin is ShortCode Exec Php http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/shortcode-exec-php/ , This plugin has settings only in Network admin.

    Shortcodes in shortcode, ability to include other shortcodes(from other plugins as well as other shortcodes created by this plugin itself. This option will create many other possibilities. For example my use case is I want to have a welcome page with just 1 post with many shortcodes in it(primary purpose is these shortcodes display a message or messages and announcement or announcements. Each message and announcement is made possible by a shortcode.

    [main_shortcode]
    [sub_shortcode_1]
    [sub_shortcode_2]
    [sub_shortcode_3]
    [/main_shortcode]

    Now let's say I want the [sub_shortcode_1] to be modified. I just edit this snippet and job is done. 1 edit is all that is needed to change the content globally instead of editing each post. I can even edit this shortcode and save it without any content. When there is no content the plugin ignores the shortcode and gracefully outputs the remaining 2.

    This plugin is so promising and I think making it do above things in addition will prove very useful.

    Thank you for this nice plugin.

    First thanks for the kind words,

    Now making it work on a network wide install shouldn't be that hard and I'll look into it.
    As for running Shortcodes in shortcode, the plugin already does that.

    Was the multisite issue ever resolved? I'm interested in using this plugin but not setting up duplicate shortcodes across many multisites. Thanks
