Thank you.

One of the best WP plug-ins available
By , for WP 3.8.1

I know that this has recently become unsupported by the author and that is unfortunate because I find this to be a very useful plug-in. The interface is user-friendly and allows users to test and debug shortcuts ahead of using them in their posts, pages, and widgets, which has allowed me much greater control of my content.

Very Useful
By ,

This is a very useful way to rapidly prototype shortcodes.
By combining it with other plugins, like the php browser detection plugin, I can see that I can more easily cut down on the number of bits emitted for mobile users while keeping the full-screen experience rich.

Thank you for your support of the whole WordPress community.

This plugin is just perfect for it intends to do, 5 stars!

My only suggestion is to add the choice of executing the code when the shortcode is implemented as a template tag within the loop. I needed this feature as I have included the shortcode in template files to automatically add the result to each post/excerpt.

Excellent work.

Best Plugin for PHP code
By , for WP 3.5.2

Its very simple and easy to use. It really works for me and I was looking for something where I can create my own PHP code inside wordpress and reuse it multiple times with sime shortcode. It really works.

This is my first comment on any plug-in in wordpress and I register my account to give them 5 stars :) Great Job Developers !!

Easy to use, just needs a video walk through or some nice screenshots for newbie
By , for WP 3.5.1

Easy to use, just needs a video walk through or some nice screenshots for newbie users.

The most important thing if you are using it in multisite is to go to network admin, then to go to settings/Shortcode Exec PHP
and make the code snippets and relative shortcodes there.
ALso remember to Make shortcodes global so that they work on all subsites or subfolders
