Support » Plugin: Shortcodes Finder » “Find Unused Shortcodes” shows a lot of incorrect entries

  • Resolved Marc Bernard


    When using Gutenberg blocks that store content in pages as JSON, the plugin mistakes the JSON for shortcodes and lists fragments of the JSON as “Unused Shortcodes”.

    – Install and activate YOAST plugin (very popular)
    – Create new page with “YOAST FAQ” block
    – Enter some FAQs
    – Go to Shortcodes Finder > Unused Shortcodes > Pages

    Example content of such page:

    <!– wp:yoast/faq-block {“questions”:[{“id”:”faq-question-1559039990865″,”question”:[“Who should use “,{“type”:”em”,”props”:{“children”:[“Marc Bernard Tools”]}},”?”],”answer”:[{“type”:”em”,”props”:{“children”:[“Marc Bernard Tools”]}},” are best for professionals – at customers or consulting partners – who are customizing and developing a data warehouse with SAP BW or SAP BW/4HANA. If you want to make your life easier, then you need “,{“type”:”em”,”props”:{“children”:[“Marc Bernard Tools”]}},”.”],…
    <!– /wp:yoast/faq-block –>

    Needless to say, the [ ] are not shortcodes but JSON data.

    Hi @luxxor!
    Take a look to new 1.4 version 😉
    Your problem with Yoast (and other false positive unused shortcodes) should be resolved; give me a feedback if don’t.

    I’ve included some other good functionality, like the shortcode source informations that you suggested and developed in April.

    Thanks again! I’ve mention you in 1.4.0 changelog for your help 😉
    …and I would really appreciate your plugin review.
