Support » Plugin: Hide Broken Shortcodes » Will potentially break any plug-in using 'associative array' names for inputs

  • Resolved Stephen Harris

    (@stephenharris)


    Hide Broken Shortcodes removes anything matching WordPress’ shortcode syntax that is left over after parsing shortcodes. Unfortunately this includes false positives such as [world]

    <input type="text" name="hello[world]" />

    which may have either been added by the user in the post content or added via another shortcode from another plug-in.

    There have been previous reports of it breaking MailPoet and WooCommerce (You can add Event Organiser Pro to that list too). As the above shows, the issue is much wider than that.

    Hi @stephenharris,

    Sorry for the belated follow-up to this. I greatly appreciate your report!

    The issue was fixed in v1.8 of Hide Broken Shortcodes back in May 2016, though I neglected to follow up here about it until now. The plugin no longer attempts to identify potential shortcodes within HTML attributes.

    Cheers!
