  3. Save !
  4. Now insert the shortcode [sc name="my_shortcode"] in your post/page.

  2. Paste the adsense code in the box given and save it.
  3. Use [sc name="adsenseAd"] in your posts and pages.
  4. Tada !!! the ad code is replaced and it appears in the post.
  5. Now you can edit the ad code at one place and the code is updated in all the locations where the shortcode is used.

Allowed characters are alphabets, numbers, hyphens and underscores.

My shortcode is not working in my page builder !

Please check with your page builder plugin to confirm if the block/place/area where the shortcode is being used can execute shortcodes. If yes, then shortcode should work fine just like regular WordPress shortcodes.

My shortcode is not working !

Please check the following if you notice that the shortcode content is not printed or when the output is not as expected.

  • Please verify if the shortcode content is printed. If shortcode content is not seen printed, check the shortcode settings to see if any option is enabled to restrict where and when shortcode is printed. Also confirm if the shortcode name is correct and there is no duplicate name attribute for the shortcode.
  • If shortcode is printed but the output is not as expected, please try the shortcode content in an isolated environment and confirm if the shortcode content is working correctly as expected. Sometimes it might be external factors like theme, other plugin might conflict with the shortcode content being used.
  • There is a known limitation in shortcodes API when there is a combination of unclosed and closed shortcodes. Please refer this document for more information.

I can't customize my page/post without this wonderful plugin. Thank you very much for your great effort and time to bring this plugin to us.

An absolutely useful plugin to display content. When used in a clever way, you can even fetch content dynamically, and it's a turning point for WordPress-based websites. The best feature: you're allowed to include javascript in your shortcodes. And the support is awesome!

Great little plugin that saved me a lot of headaches adding small scripts to Woocommerce product pages which don't allow for much customization without extensive PHP knowledge. The author is very active in support as well.

I LOVED this plugin. Used it all over my site. One day got a call that vital functionality wasn't working and... it was Shortcoder. The total rewrite into v5 corrupted all my shortcodes. It removed style and script tags, changed the way for loops work in my JavaScript. It's been a mess. Should have had those backed up but I didn't, and now I'm paying for it.
