Support » Plugin: Shortcoder ā€” Create Shortcodes for Anything » Links to third party script

    Hello Aakash,

    I am sorry to have to say this, but version 5.x is a regression. It does not offer anything new, but it does introduce some problems and unfortunately also a security issue.

    1. There seems to be an icon missing in the menu on the left. Please see this screenshot. Also, why exactly did the icon change from Tools, where it should be, to its own menu entry? We have enough plugins that clutter the menu on the left already. Please don’t do this.

    2. It is not possible to insert a shortcode, unless you allow the following javascript to load:

    https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1/jquery.min.js

    Why does this plugin depend on javascript loaded from a third website? Why is the javascript not simply included with the plugin itself? This can be a serious security issue in the case of DNS spoofing.

    Apologies, I see that version 4.6 had the same third party javascript issue already. Question would still be the same though. I have no other plugins that depend on scripts from other website.
