Numerous unsavvy theme developers have engaged in a bad practice of replacing WordPress' default Shortcode API formatting with a custom formatting function, which can produce unanticipated malformed plugin output. This plugin removes the faulty code that was unwisely suggested in a blog that unfortunately has been implemented by not-so-great theme developers.

Most of all, don't purchase a theme from ThemeForest - they're aware of the bad practice and have done nothing to proactively remove the faulty themes from their website. They say they're on the way to better quality control practices - well that starts with taking down the themes that utilize bad practices and they're not willing to even do that. Ugh.
