Shortcodes Pro
Shortcodes with Select attribute no longer working with 3.9? (16 posts)

    I know this is a long shot since the plugin author seems to have gone AWOL for a while, but...

    I recently upgraded WordPress to 3.9, and now my shortcodes that use a Select attribute (i.e. a pulldown list) no longer work. I still get the pop-up with the pulldown menu, but when I click on Insert, I get this:

    Shortcode not found. Please verify your settings

    Does anyone know of a way to fix this? Shortcodes Pro is an incredibly useful plugin, and I can't find anything that can replace it. :(

    Thank you cdoo, your solution worked like a charm!!

    Anyone else who has this problem, I highly recommend that you drop cdoo a note. It's a simple fix.

    Hopefully the plugin author will fix it one day!

    It's a very simple fix. Version 3.9 of WordPress incorporates a new version of TinyMCE. This new version (TinyMCE 4) no longer includes one of the functions required by Shortcodes Pro.

    You simply need to edit the following file:
    shortcodes-pro/inc/shortcodespro-overlay.php

    And replace the following line:
    window.tinyMCE.execInstanceCommand('content', 'mceInsertContent', false, shortcodeContent);

    With this:
    window.tinyMCE.execCommand('mceInsertContent', false, shortcodeContent);

    I couldn't understand why cdoo didn't just post the solution to this thread. But then I found out he was asking for donations for this very simple fix.

    We worked for several hours to solve this problem (try & error).
    The idea about the "donate button" was like "a beer for solving the problem".

    However: If anyone have integration issues - just contact us/me.

    btw: before you edit a php file in your wordpress installation - backup the original one!

    I think the author didn't developed this Plugin in a couple of hours, but he contributed it 4 free ... So, in my opinion, even a bugfix should be free to cherish all the work and make the Plugin work in the current Version for everyone!

    Thank you dazbot!

    Unfortunately I tried dazbot's solution but it's still broken. Any other ideas to solve this?

    Shortcodes Pro is such a nice plugin, it's sad that I cannot use it anymore.
