Shortcode Disabler


Over time, plugins and themes tend to leave behind shortcodes. Shortcode Disabler allows you to “disable” those old shortcodes by replacing them with nothing on the front end.

Optionally, you can choose to display or hide the content of a shortcode. In other words, this: [some-shortcode]this is content[/some-shortcode] can become this: this is content on the frontend of your site.


  • View of the admin page
  • Editing a shortcode
