Ever since my über vent over fake shortcodes that autoformat the output of real shortcodes, I realized that the intention was good but the execution was bad.
So, I wrote a quick plugin that I thought was a more elegant (and that did not affect expected, core WordPress behaviors).
This plugin allows you to create a library of raw HTML snippets you need to embed within post/page content, then uses the native shortcode API to embed them without them being auto-formatted by
It may not be as convenient as pasting directly into the HTML tab of the WYSIWYG editor, but it’s a solution that’s reusable, clean and does not interfere with the core functionality of WordPress or other possible plugins/shortcodes/content filters.
Give it a whirl, and let me know what you think!
