Is there is any plugin that can help me to rid of inFocus Theme shortcodes?
The main problem is image resizer shortcode: http://themes.mysitemyway.com/infocus/shortcodes/image-frames-effects-shortcodes/
I used this shortcode in about 1k posts.
It works like this: I put the image URL and specify the size i want ( let’s say 960×180).
[image_frame style="framed" align="left" height="180" width="960"]http://domain.tld/1.jpg[/image_frame]
The shortcode use the timthumb script and produce the HTML code like this:
<img class="framed" src="http://domain.tld/../timthumb/thumb.php? src=http://domain.tld/1.jpg&w=960&h=180&zc=1&q=100" title="" alt="" width="960" height="180" />
I appreciate any help, thank you.

Hi, I might be able to help, please contact me through my profile page.
You just need to loop through content of each post in database and do a string replacement. It’s not hard or time-consuming work for PHP developer, the WordPress has even regular expression to find and parse shortcodes http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_shortcode_regex
There is also a plugin – http://forteweb.us/shortcode-cleanup-plugin/ , but I haven’t tried it.
My guess is that if he is trying to get rid of inFocus shortcodes, it’s because he is switching themes. In this case, get_shortcode_regex will not work as it searches for registered shortcodes only.
To make it work, you need to enable inFocus again, run the script that will use get_shortcode_regex to remove them, and then reactivate your new theme.
The reason to put short codes in plugins
Good luck with it!
