I have dozens upon dozens of shortcodes nested within Custom Tabs and other tabbed meta data typed posts. First I tried solution from Scribit (, but it failed to detect my shortcodes that were nested within different post's metadata (Custom Tabbs, Responsive Tabs, etc.), it only indexed the regular post types such as Posts, Products, Portfolio etc. This solution found them all and listed all information about the type and whereabouts of the shortcodes in nice and detailed tables. Deserves more downloads.
