    In doing some troubleshooting for a new plugin we're trying to use, I've discovered that CCTM is a bit of a troublemaker with other shortcode plugins - particularly with Shortcodes Ultimate - makes it fail on a 2nd insert into a post. It also messes up the Caldera Engine plugin, but only if it is added after CCTM.

    I haven't done any deeper digging to see what's going on with the init, but CCTM appears to be the one doing the pushing and shoving.

    WP's event-based architecture here is extremely vulnerable to conflicts. There's no pushing or shoving, you just have different actions registered to the same events, and there's always the possibility for unexpected behavior -- you don't know who gets to the party first. Given the limitations of the WP architecture, conflicts are impossible to avoid. I can't comment on the other plugins you mentioned, but understand that the CCTM alters a lot of the WP functionality, and sometimes very hacky approaches are required to keep the WP core from crumbling apart. This is one of the key reasons that I do not consider WP appropriate for production websites.

    If you want to file a bug report, please provide the URLs of the plugins and the exact steps to reproduce the problematic behavior: https://code.google.com/p/wordpress-custom-content-type-manager/issues/list

    No guarantee that these types of things can be fixed though.
