Works very well
By , for WP 3.8.1

Hi,

This plugin works very well fo me.
Even the link to the icons worked (http://www.petefreitag.com/cheatsheets/jqueryui-icons/)

Although sometimes I had to View Page first after editing before I could update and save changes.But I think that due of WP itself.

So, as far as I'm concerned I can recommend this plugin.
See for yourself.
It's dutch, we're working on it, but you wille get the picture.

Blew up my site; completely unusable
By , for WP 3.8.1

Like other reviewers, this plugin did nothing but blow up my site, most likely because it conflicted with other plugins or the theme (Enfold, which is extremely common). I was not able to access any admin functions, so I tried to delete the shortcode plugin folder via FTP. Still dead. I deleted ALL of my plugins and the plugin folder itself, and reinstalled everything from scratch. Site works again but at half the speed of before.

Avoid this plugin at all costs.

Mini-Review
By , for WP 3.8.1

Works well enough, but various menus and interfaces are kind of heavy on the upsell messaging (to the point of spammy). I appreciate and support the plugin development community, but it is a bit much and ultimately went with another solution.

Waste of time

Basically, doesn't do what it claims to do. Hopeless :(

Does not work with Churchope theme
By , for WP 3.6

Plug in causes conflicts with the Churchope theme. Stopping Churchope Shortcodes from working.

Can't remove cleanly
By ,

Had this plugin installed.

Then installed new theme: http://themenectar.com/demo/salient

Plugin breaks the themes features so need to remove plugin. However when removing plugin it corrupts the themes features. Seems to be no way of removing the plugin cleanly. Have tried removing all themes, plugins, reinstalling everything but to no availl. Very frustrating.

Very useful, if you don't need to customize it
By , for WP 3.5.2

Does everything I expected it to. Only problem is it's EXTREMELY difficult to alter through CSS. Very poor choice in naming the divs and id's. Took me hours to figure out how to alter the look of the tabbed menu alone, not to mention the columns.

Typography Not Included
By , for WP 3.5.2

It seems the typography features I was looking for are not available with the free version.

It's ok but severely overloaded
By , for WP 3.5.1

For a simple program that converts shortcodes into text in the backend, I cannot comprehend how it needs to load so many css and javascript files on the frontend!

Massive overkill in a CMS that already has too many external file calls... This one is far too top heavy for me

So far sooOOOoooOOo gooood!
By ,

Strongbad would give synved 4 stars I bet, maybe even 5. So far, Synved shortcodes has worked beautifully. I even managed to to get the accordion plugin to fire during a hover event instead of a mouseclick. (more on that here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/get-accordion-to-open-during-hover-event-onmouseover?replies=1#post-4200649 ).

Cheers!
