Support » Plugin: Shorty - The Shortcode Manager » Awesome, and can be even better

  • Extremely easy to use plugin, should be must have for everyone blogger, who use repeating content (like ads or database). have some ideas for developer.
    First, you need to use additional prefix to shortcodes, bot like [ad], but [shorty-ad]. Why? Because in otherway it can ruin some page if user used brackets [ and ] before. Like in this example. Previously I used [ABOUT] to decrypted who I am. Not I create shortcode titled “about” and suddenly my page ruined because my previously interred [about] should not be shortcode, but should be title… Erm.. Hard to understand, I know..
    Second, what about widget support? It would be nice if I can post some shorty into widget to create text module in sidebar quickly.

    Great job! Will look forward into updating!

    Hey f4tal1st,

    thanks for your rating and feedback!

    About the widget: Themes must support placing shortcodes into text widget. If it’s not activated, you can add this to your functions.php

    add_filter(‘widget_text’, ‘do_shortcode’);

    About the issues you wrote: I cannot 100% follow your explanation. Feel free to contact me directly via then we will figure it out. I’m very interested in fixing it / improving the plugin.

    Best regards
