I’m looking for a shortcode plugin/framework, ideally with the following requirements:
- extendable - define new custom shortcodes
- file-based - for easier re-usage and deployment
visual - integrated in the editor: toolbar menu + some placeholder in the RTE, ideally editable – the way the default wp
The ones I managed to get by so far I found to be either too bloated for my liking, are storing the shortcodes in the db (ex Shortcodes Ultimate (Maker)) or are parts of other bigger frameworks (Unyson, Piklist – buggy on first try) I wouldn’t necessarily be keen on installing just for the shortcode capability.
Are there any alternatives you fine ppl would recommend?
PS. I started looking for shortcodes after stumbling upon Aesop Engine, after I realised something similar could be achieved with a collection of custom shortcodes.
