How I do it on my live demos is just by writing them with span tags. The span tags will make it so WP doesn’t see them as shortcodes, but and then obviously span tags are html tags and won’t show on the front end of your site.

So this:

[<span>example_shortcode</span>]

Will output this on your WP post:

[example_shortcode]

Use two brackets instead of one:

[ [ shortcode ] ]

It only displays [shortcode]
