– View all posts/pages where each shortcode is used
– Revisions to view all changes and restore previous versions
– Search and filter shortcodes
– Export and Import shortcodes using the WordPress Tools
– Delete shortcodes to disable them on the frontend

Q: Can I insert PHP code in shortcode content?
Q: What are the allowed characters for shortcode name?
A: Allowed characters are alphabets, numbers, hyphens and underscores.
Q: My shortcode is not working in my page builder!
A: 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.
Q: I’ve added some code and it crashed my site. Please help!
A: If your code crashed the website and you can no longer access it, add the following into your wp-config.php file to temporarily disable the output of the shortcodes:
define( 'SHORTCODES_MANAGER_DISABLED', true );
This will allow you to disable shortcodes on the front-end of the website, but you can still access the wp-admin area and edit or remove the problematic code.
To enable shortcodes on the frontend again, simply remove the code from wp-config.php file.
Q: My shortcode is not working!
A: 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.
