Supercharge your WordPress theme with mega pack of shortcodes
This is a great plugin, and I would have been happy to rate it at five stars for functionality. BUT! It got downrated to three stars because of the incessant nag screen urging me to rate the plugin.
Even if you click on 'later', or 'no thanks' it keeps coming back every time you go to the Plugins page. How can you expect a new user to give you an honest review before they have even played with the plugin?
So there you go Vlad, three stars instead of five for constantly annoying me! You managed to annoy me that much that I have deleted the plugin, and will install one of your competitors' plugins instead. So hopefully you will take the hint and back off with the nag screen in a later version.
This is a very good plugin but it does need more descriptive help on how to use the shortcodes. The plugin is lacking in tutorial help for people who are not as code literate and requires some extra options that would make this plugin great!
It is very good and worth using but just needs a bit extra.
I updated this plugin to the newest version and all of my shortcodes broke, because the author renamed the shortcode from [example] to [su_example]. I had to manually fix all of them. Otherwise, good plugin.
This Plugin is an awesome idea and it opens up many customization possibilities. But there are parts that do not work as expected!
Like displaying posts. I am trying to display latest three posts in a category or that has a specific tag both do not work. this is the generated shortcode:
[su_posts template="templates/default-loop.php" posts_per_page="3" post_type="post" taxonomy="category" tax_term="9" tax_operator="0" offset="0" order="desc" orderby="date" post_status="publish" ignore_sticky_posts="no"]
I haven't had any problems with it yet. I'm rather new to WP
I love this plugin because of the variety and versatility of the shortcodes. Only issue is that there are sooooo many updates and many times when I update the plugin the codes are changed and I end up having to go through alllll of my posts and pages to correct the codes to reflect the lastest verson... only to have the next update go back to the original code. It is extremely fustrating. The current version (4.5.2) now does not work at all. THere is no versatility for the plugins. I love this plugin and there are no others that I can find with the same variety as this one but this issue is making me want to stop using it.
I keep running into problems with several shortcodes. And, I have yet to get any help or suggestions with the first one I reported. The no-help is expected - it is free afterall. But, the bugginess is frustrating.
Before committing to using this plugin by scattering some of these shortcodes among your website(s)/blog(s), test thoroughly. For each shortcode, presume it does not work until you completely test it. For example, try out "posts" shortcode with the default settings and it will work fine. But, change most anything and it breaks.
I've been using this plugin for sometime now... every time there is a new update, all of the code from the shortcodes display on my site after the update. I have to go back and change pre-fixes or sift through the support forum to figure out how to fix it - and I wish I could be doing other things with my time.
I like this plugin, does lots of good things, but most people need to use an auto linker like seo auto linker to easily add links across their site, but this plugin does not work if you have the tabs shortcode on page sor posts. Other auto linking plugins don't work with it either. Sort that out and i'm happy. Perhaps the ability to change the colour of tabs and the like to make it more interesting.
works good, but sometimes it doesn't works .
