    Hey anmari,
    I have come across a couple of forum topics lately that are about needing to change shortcodes, either for exporting content with galleries using the correct new IDs or switching to a new plugin with a different shortcode or wanting to update legacy content to look more like blocks (again with the galleries).
    What people seem to need is a plugin that can find all their shortcodes and either expand them to HTML to replace the shortcode or change the name of the shortcode. I know the name change can be done with a Search/Replace plugin, but getting the parameters all correct wouldn’t really be something to do manually. I’m not sure about the galleries using IDs that change when importing to another site…

    Anyway, this content manipulation aspect seemed like a natural extension for this plugin that already deals with all the shortcodes.

    Thanks Joy, however i imagine the same problems with parameters would arise which ever way one tried to do it. Plugins with similar features tend to work differently so writing code to generically do this would basically end up being some kind of search & replace code anyway.
