Reviews

Super useful for shortcode cleaning or shortcode parameter verifications

Well designed, I’ve used it to find:

1) what shortcodes were REALLY used on my site since I wanted to clean some shortcodes that were registered but probably not used
2) what parameters the used shortcodes were using, specifically gravityforms ID (I did lot of split testing on that site so I didn’t want to forget an old form not using the correct shortcode parameter).

Highly recommended for cleanups and verifications of both shortcodes themselves, as well as shortcode’s parameters.

Incredibly Useful Plugin

If you’ve ever had to go through a site page by page looking for instances of a shortcode from a plugin that you deleted or want to replace, you know that it’s a tedious process. Shortcodes Finder makes the process super simple. It even finds shortcodes from plugins that are no longer active. Excellent work here from a very responsive developer.

Featured on the iThemes Training Plugin Roundup, March 2018. Skip to 57:35 to see this plugin in action. Note that the feature to find shortcodes from inactive plugins was added after this webinar.
