WordPress Shortcodes

An amazing set of great shortcodes: SEO-ready tabs, sections, buttons, links to any content, author cards, lists, layouts, conditionals and more!

No instructions, manual, or help menu
By , for WP 4.5.2

I installed Social Media Feather and WordPress Shortcodes (same plugin author), but neither provides onscreen instructions or help menus, and I could not find manuals, FAQ, or a community forum on the author's website for the plugins. I tried to reply to his most recent blog post about WordPress Shortcodes, but the captcha is malfunctioning so I could not reply.

Mini-Review
By , for WP 3.8.1

Works well enough, but various menus and interfaces are kind of heavy on the upsell messaging (to the point of spammy). I appreciate and support the plugin development community, but it is a bit much and ultimately went with another solution.

Very useful, if you don't need to customize it

Does everything I expected it to. Only problem is it's EXTREMELY difficult to alter through CSS. Very poor choice in naming the divs and id's. Took me hours to figure out how to alter the look of the tabbed menu alone, not to mention the columns.

It's ok but severely overloaded

For a simple program that converts shortcodes into text in the backend, I cannot comprehend how it needs to load so many css and javascript files on the frontend!

Massive overkill in a CMS that already has too many external file calls... This one is far too top heavy for me
