I created two columns in my pages and on several of them, the second column was occupied by what appears to be a sidebar, but is actually all part of the same page. Using a sidebar was not an option for me, and I had wished I could use a simple include instead, which also wasn't an option, so this was the perfect solution! Now if I have to update that content I only have to do it in one place rather than on several pages. Thanks!!!
Have used this plugin for years and it still amazes. Recently used it to create shortcodes to update over 500+ posts. Worked flawlessly. Thank you for a great resource.
Thank you for this helpful plugin ;)
This is one of the handiest plugins I have ever used. It works great, it's simple and intuitive to use (see caveat at bottom of this review), and the UI is quite neat and functional without being overbearing.
If you are not into custom coding, I would say you really should have this in your plugin repertoire for every site, along with "User meta shortcodes" by Richard Vencu.
The example parameter of
%%someParameter%% should be changed to
%%someparameter%% or even
%%some-parameter%%. I used a mixed case parameter name like that example, and spent 4 hours trying to figure out why the plugin was not working. Most people would have just deleted the plugin.
After cursing PHP because the
preg_replace() functions no longer worked, and cursing the developer of this plugin for not keeping it current (none of which were relevant, as it turns out), I ran across this in the WordPress Codex for the Shortcodes API:
IMPORTANT TIP - Don't use camelCase or UPPER-CASE for your $atts attribute names $atts values are lower-cased during shortcode_atts( array( 'attr_1' => 'attr_1 default', // ...etc ), $atts ) processing, so you might want to just use lower-case.
I knocked a star off for that because of how much time it took to figure out what was going on.
This is fucking amazing. Thank you !!
Thanks for this plugin, it allow me to integrate new features to wordpress very quickly!
Worked like a charm straight out of the box.
Wanted an adsense 728x90 in a certain spot on a page, added the script to text editor and the ad never shows. So I installed Shortcoder, created shortcode, added custom shortcode to text editor on that page and voila! the adsense is appearing as expected.
This plugin is going to work great to create ad shortcodes for authors to place on the bottom of their own posts.
FYI: Using Divi by Elegant Themes (Page builder/modules)
Excellent plugin, the only missing functionnality is default value for empty parameters. Add this feature and you will have the best plugin for wordpress ever, and it's kind of easy todo that.
Ability to not have every time the "sc:" prefix if we dont want will be awesome.
