    By external database, could you please give more details ?

    If you have the shortcodes in CSV format, then there are certain other plugins which can import shortcodes/posts from CSV file. Please follow this doc for the same – https://www.aakashweb.com/docs/shortcoder-doc/import-export/#import-other-sources

    I am using multiple database. One of them wordpress database, second is mine. I want to create a shortcode with my second database. It’s connection string is different.

    So I cannot use $wpdb, I need to prepare query on second database. However, as I understood, shortcoder does not support it in easy way.

    Ok then. In that case, is it possible for you to export the shortcodes from the source website and import it in the target website ?

    Please refer do below to export and import.

    I dont need it. My request is different.

    My wordpress website has 2 database. But only one of them include wordpress files.

    Second is just my database and it has not any wordpress data.

    I think “shortcoder” plugin need to has multiple database option.

    hmm… I don’t see a reason why this should be a feature as a part of shortcoder as it is a very unique requirement.

    What you could do is, import the database to the server to a different name where wordpress files are there, change the wordpress configuration so that the wordpress points to the database, export the shortcodes/posts, switch back to the original DB and import.

    Thanks,
