ShortCodes UI
[resolved] Conflict with OptinSkin!! (7 posts)

    I am using your Shortcodes UI plugin and it is great - I love it.

    However, I noticed today that it conflicts with OptinSkin and causes the plugin to post 4 mailing list forms scattered around the website instead of in just one area like normal.

    Basically. It is supposed to put a form at the bottom of each post, but it actually puts one at the bottom of every short code usage too.

    Do you know how I can fix this?

    What shortcode is used for OptinSkin?

    Do you have a similar shortcode defined in ShortCodes UI?

    My guess is that the problem is with their plugin.

    I don't know - it puts that in itself.

    I haven't got a similar one no.

    The problem must be with Shortcodes UI, as another plugin that does the same thing also posted 4 forms instead of one when using Shortcodes UI.

    Is the other plugin free? I'd be glad to test if it is.

    Yes: https://wordpress.org/plugins/magic-action-box/

    I also had problems with Digg Digg floating social bar not appearing when short codes UI was present in the ubermenu. Uber's team said it was a problem with short codes UI too.

    It seems that the way short codes UI is implemented makes other plugins think there are several "pages" in one post - which must be why I'm seeing 4 optin boxes when I have 3 short codes on the website page. (1 for the actual post, 3 extra for the 3 short codes). Plugins that are made to identify and do something with the presence of a post content area must be mistaking short codes ui for one too.

    I could not duplicate your issue after installing Magic Action Box. The fact that you have little or no control over the insertion of the OptinSkin content seems to be a problem. Is it a widget? Something is not making sense here.
    I find it hard to believe that the ShortCodes UI is the non-standard plugin in this mix...
    Is there any alternative for OptinSkin?
