Perfect but: missplaced ads, some bugs
By , for WP 4.5.2

Why are your hover-ads so missplaced? Everytime you just hover some milliseconds, the ads go over the textarea.

If I save a shortcode, I would like he stays open. Instead of this, Shortcoder everytime goes back to the "main-menu".

A little bug:
open a already saved shortcode. Go to "text" mode and save the shortcode. Your changes won't be saved. You have to go to the "visual" tab before you can safely save your changes.

But: I really like this plugin. It provides everything what I coded long time ago very stupid by hand.

I just removed the adverts everywhere because they are not placed very good.

Great Plugin But...
By , for WP 4.4.1

With the new syntax [sc name="my_shortcode"] , I cannt put the shortcode in theme file,

<?php echo do_shortcode("[shortcode-name]"); ?>

Any solution?
Thanks,
Bless

Works Great
By , for WP 4.3.1

I love this plugin. handles my javascript and php code with no issues.

the interface when I go work with it sometimes bugs me.
Why is it under the settings tab? And when I save a shortcode it closes and I have to open it again.
but ... little things compared to it working great!

A must-have but watch out for camelCase parameters!
By , for WP 4.1

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.

NOTE:
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 str_replace() and 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.

A small and clear plugin that does the job
By , for WP 3.8.1

Something obvious with this nice plugin, which makes exactly what is expected. A negative point : not ready for translation, many texts are directly written inside PHP code.
