SR-Wrapper

Description

This plugin allows page authors to easily demonstrate shortcodes in their posts and pages by wrapping them inside a shortcode that does—well, nothing. It’s a NOOP.

Usage

Just wrap the shortcode you’re trying to demonstrate in enclosing [wrapper] shortcodes, like this:

[wrapper][shortcode_example][/wrapper]

Installation

To start using the [wrapper] shortcode, install it by uploading the sr-wrapper folder to your wp-content/plugins directory and then activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress. Then just start using the shortcode in your pages!

FAQ

Why did you do this?

Because when I tried writing instructions for my first shortcode plugin, I realized that describing its usage in a post or a page was going to be difficult, because WordPress kept trying to process it. So I wrote this plugin to take advantage of the fact that shortcode processing is not recursive, making it easy to write the instructions for my first plugin!
