    I figured this would be a big deal for a lot of users, however I’ve been swamped with users submitting issues of conflicts with the [pullquote] shortcode.

    By changing the shortcode to something more unique, there is far less a chance of conflict between this and other plugins.

    There are two options going forward:

    1. [RECOMMENDED] Update the plugin to version 1.7, and yes, you will need to update all previous [pullquote]...[/pullquote] shortcodes to the new format: [perfectpullquote]...[/perfectpullquote]. I realize this can be a pain if you have a large number of shortcodes to replace. The good news is that there are fairly easy methods to update all of your previous posts. I’d recommend trying Shortcode Removal Method #1: Search RegEx, however there are other similar plugins available. The RegEx plugin (and others like it) are fairly standard, just make sure you carefully fill out the form before submitting. If you need some help, let me know; it’s fairly straightforward.
    2. If you want to downgrade your plugin in the meantime in case don’t have time to update all posts at the moment, simply delete the current version of the plugin you have installed, and then download the previous version I have made available on GitHub. To install from your Dashboard, go to Plugins > Add New and upload the .zip file. Just make sure not to update to version 1.7 until you’ve successfully updated all of your shortcode tags. Notice, however, that you will not receive future updates if you don’t take the time to update your shortcodes, delete this temporary version, and install the most current version of the plugin.

    I apologize for any inconvenience this major change will cause, however it will prove to be more stable and reliable going forward.

    If using the Search RegEx plugin, use the following keywords:

    To replace the opening shortcode tag, search for

    \[pullquote
    

    and replace it with

    [perfectpullquote
    

    (notice both are missing the closing bracket).

    To replace the closing shortcode tag, search for

    \[/pullquote\]
    

    and replace it with

    [/perfectpullquote]

    UPDATE – USE THESE KEYWORDS:
    If using the Search RegEx plugin, use the following keywords:

    To replace the opening shortcode tag, search for

    [pullquote

    and replace it with

    [perfectpullquote

    (notice both are missing the closing bracket).

    To replace the closing shortcode tag, search for

    [/pullquote]

    and replace it with

    [/perfectpullquote]

    Okay thanks for this info. I’ll take a full back up before attempting any of this and hopefully the changes go smoothly. Thanks.
