Support » Plugin: Remove Orphan Shortcodes » Prevents the Display of Literal Text In Square Brackets

  • The plug-in does what it’s supposed to do, which is to scan the text at some layer after the short-codes have been executed, and to remove any text in square brackets which may remain.

    But an unfortunate side-effect of this is also, that when we use the old trick, of putting text into square-brackets twice, which normally tells WordPress to put a literal piece of text which is in square-brackets once, your plug-in also causes that piece of text to vanish.

    It would be a good feature, to be able to deactivate this.

  • Sorry to bump.

    But I think that an important detail which I just left out above, is that I frequently need for square-brackets to appear in code-blocks, where the conventions of using ASCII-codes 91 and 93 doesn’t work – they’re displayed literally then.

    Hi Dirk,

    I can see your point here. It makes sense. I will address this to our developers and we will see what can be done in the upcoming updates.

    In the meantime, can you please give me an example or two of the text your are wrapping in square brackets so I can have a better picture?


    By now I have switched to using a different plug-in, to hide my orphaned short-codes.

    Therefore, wanted square brackets now appear correctly on my blog.

    Thank you anyway,
