Ga naar de plugin documentatie pagina voor de volledige lijst met FAQs.

What are the allowed characters for shortcode name?

Toegestane tekens zijn alfabetten, cijfers, koppeltekens en onderstrepingstekens.

Mijn shortcode werkt niet in mijn pagina bouwer!

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.

Mijn shortcode werkt niet!

Controleer het volgende als je merkt dat de inhoud van de shortcode niet wordt afgedrukt of als de uitvoer niet is zoals verwacht.

  • 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.
  • Als shortcode wordt afgedrukt, maar de output is niet zoals verwacht, probeer dan de shortcode inhoud in een geïsoleerde omgeving en te bevestigen of de shortcode inhoud correct werkt zoals verwacht. Soms kan aan het externe factoren liggen zoals thema, andere plugin zou kunnen botsen met de shortcode inhoud wordt gebruikt.
  • Er is een bekende beperking in shortcodes API wanneer er een combinatie is van niet-gesloten en gesloten shortcodes. Raadpleeg dit document voor meer informatie.

Kan ik PHP code in mijn shortcode inhoud invoegen?

Nee, op dit moment ondersteunt de plugin alleen HTML, Javascript en CSS als shortcode inhoud.

Kan ik een blok-editor of paginabouwers zoals Elementor en WPBakery gebruiken om shortcode te maken?

Ja, deze functie is beschikbaar in de PRO-versie. Je kan upgraden naar de PRO-versie om te ontwerpen met een aangepaste editor en daarvoor shortcode te maken.

Works well, but not compatible with WPML. So, it is good for local businesses only. Also, it did not work in the Cloud Templates (TagDiv/Newspaper), so I could not use it in the header or footer. I don’t know if there is a solution to this, I did not investigate this issue further as WPML compatibility is critical.

Thank you for this plugin. It is lightweight, intuitive, and effective. I have used several similar plugins in the past in an attempt to give my clients more content control. However, those plugins either have been abandoned or do not work in some contexts (e.g., in archive pages of custom post types). Shortcoder will be my new go-to.

I’ve searched high and low for a shortcode plugin to meet my needs. For some reason this plugin never showed up in the first few pages of my plugin search from the Wordpress add plugin page. Instead my searches were inundated with plugins that provided a selection of preset shortcodes for various functions. I was to the point of mapping out writing my own plugin with the features I’d like, sighing at the prospect of yet another project I don’t have time for, when I stumbled upon Shortcoder. All I can say is it’s exactly what I needed! Adding and managing custom shortcodes was never easier. I even had several instances of “Wouldn’t it be cool if this plugin did… oh wait … IT DOES!” I rarely find software that motivates me to write a 5-star review, well, Shortcoder is one. Kudos to the software engineer(s) and excellent work! By the way, contrary to other reviews, it absolutely works perfectly in Woocommerce product pages.
