Shortcode Creator

Create your own shortcodes for Shortcodes Ultimate

Features Overview

Replace Default Shortcodes

You don’t like the way some shortcode works? Not a problem! Create your own shortcode with the same name, and it will replace the default one.

Simple HTML or Powerful PHP

Create simple shortcodes using HTML code. You can use other shortcodes in your HTML code to facilitate the work even more. Besides, you can use all capabilities of PHP code in a special mode to create flexible, yet powerful shortcodes.


Attributes are settings of a shortcode. They make shortcodes powerful and easy-to-use. With the help of attributes you can change colours, add various texts, upload images, and many other things. Maker allows you to create unlimited number of attributes for each shortcode. Do you want more control over your shortcodes? Then improve them with attributes!

Comfortable Editing

Maker uses Ace code editor. This makes code editing incredibly convenient and quick. The editor features highlighting of the code and handy variable insertion.

Import / Export

You’ll easily import created shortcodes from one site to the another. You’ll even be able to share your shortcodes with a friend.
