Shortcode Manager

Description

Add javascript, iframes, php, flash, and other code to posts, pages, and widgets with ease.

What are shortcodes?

Think of shortcodes as glorified placeholder text. WordPress strips out scripts, iframes, and other code within the visual editor. To get around this limitation, you’d create a shortcode, which looks something like [this]. WordPress will then automatically replace [this] with the content of your choosing.

Why use Shortcode Manager?

The Shortcode Manager plugin provides a clean, simple interface for managing shortcodes. It even includes an import / export feature for painless migration!

Usage

  • Add shortcodes within Tools -> Shortcodes.
  • Use [sb name=”My Shortcode”] within your posts or pages.
