What are shortcodes?

Think of shortcodes as glorified placeholder text. WordPress strips out scripts, iframes, and other code within the visual editor. To get around this limitation, you'd create a shortcode, which looks something like [this]. WordPress will then automatically replace [this] with the content of your choosing.

Why use Shortcode Manager?

The Shortcode Manager plugin provides a clean, simple interface for managing shortcodes. It even includes an import / export feature for painless migration!


  • Add shortcodes within Tools -> Shortcodes.
  • Use [sb name="My Shortcode"] within your posts or pages.
