Shortcodes Blocks Creator Ultimate

Description

Create Gutenberg Blocks for custom created shortcodes.
A clean, powerful and lightweight way to generate and include custom shortcodes with:
* HTML/PHP code.
* CSS code.
* Javascript code.
* PHP backend code for Ajax calls.
* CSS and Javascript files.
* Other resources files: images, pdfs, …

  • The plugin doesn’t interfere with the wordpress database. Nothing is wrote there. Very lightweight.
  • Ajax calls are secured with nonces. (https://developer.wordpress.org/themes/theme-security/using-nonces/)
  • Shortcodes can be inserted in post, pages, text widgets and html widgets.
  • Shortcodes can be enabled/disabled individually.
  • Custom CSS and Javascript files required for the shortcode are enqueued in the head section.
  • Clean and efficient: Nothing about any saved shortcode is executed if the shortcode is not present in the current frontend page.
  • Shortcodes can be used to inject some kind of php, javascript, css or ajax (php) code.
  • Repository of already made shortcodes in the plugin page: http://shortcodescreator.com

***** WARNING ********
– Please, if you come from version less than 1.9.7 you must backup the shortcodes before upgrading the plugin and restore them after upgrade.

***** TIP ********
– Due to the flexibility of the shortcode creation, an invalid code can broke your site. If so, you can activate safe mode on a per-page basis by appending ?safe-mode=true to the URL. In this manner, it disables the execution of all the shortcodes created.

FAQ

Where are the shortcodes stored ?

Shortcodes have a fixed files an directories structure under the uploads directory. All data is stored inside each shortcode directory. The name of the folder is the name of the [shortcode].

Can I request a feature ?

Yes, you can contact with me at cesar@shortcodescreator.com.

Will I lose my shortcodes if I change the theme or upgrade WordPress?

No, the shortcodes are stored in the uploads directory and they are independent of the theme and unaffected by WordPress upgrades. They will be only erased if you uninstall the plugin.

Will I lose my shortcodes if I update the plugin?

No after version 1.9.7, because they are stored in the uploads directory which only will be removed if uninstall the plugin.
If you upgrade from version less than 1.9.7 you must backup the shortcodes and restore after the upgrade.

The plugin really goes above and beyond in the functionality it provides. Also the ability to add additional JS & CSS files removes the need for calling it into the header manually using hooks and only loads them when the Shortcode is used. Much more functionality rich than other Shortcode plugins.

I was looking for a lightweight shortcode manager, and I found him) Light, fast, free, functional, I'm happy with everything, seriously. In my case it is used to insert modal windows, which are repeated on many pages. Thank you for the product
