Shortcodes Creator Ultimate


A clean 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. (
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.
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.
Clean and efficient: Nothing about any saved shortcode is executed if the shortcode is not present in the frontend page.
Shortcodes can be used to inject some kind of php, javascript, css or ajax (php) code.
Shortcodes can be backed up via ftp.

Where are the shortcodes stored ?

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

No, the shortcodes are stored in plugins directory and they are independent of the theme and unaffected by WordPress upgrades.
