We know how not easy to edit content inside shortcode especially when the shortcode has repeatedly content such as tabs or something similar.

The majority of bloggers are not experts with codes and brackets.

And sometimes big shortcode forced the blogger to remove and rewriting the content inside the shortcode from scratch again.

Our team decided to work on solution to make shortcode easier for bloggers.

This idea to make the shortcode easier for bloggers as much as possible.

We’ve implemented about 90% of the user friendly and editable shortcode and we’re still working on it until we achieve perfection and it will be released soon.

Watch this video to get the whole idea in action

I had the same idea some time ago, but messing with TinyMCE is the worst thing in WordPress, I wasn’t able to accomplish it, but it looks great. Will it support columns and resizing the shortcode area?

It’s good idea, I thought about it a while ago. I think it’s great if your users will add few shortcodes to content but if you are planning to build the layout you will need to find a way to represent a grid.

Cool ! Just like everyone else here, thought about this too, but as purethemes said, avoid messing with tinyMCE as much as possible :D

Looking forward for the release!

Nice Job! :-)

Since the shortcodes / generator demonstrated in the video are probably already a separate plugin due to the (not so) new TF theme guidelines, do you have plans to offer it stand-alone as a CodeCanyon item as well?

I would be very interested in purchasing it as a CC plugin rather than as an inextricable part of a theme I may not care entirely for. Those that purchase your new theme could just get the CC item bundled as (free) bonus then. Why limit your audience (for such a potentially use item)?

TinyMCE was not a picnic for us, we faced a lot of problems and we had to figure out our self.

Our focus was entirely on the content management elements and not on the layout building elements.

Columns and resizing will be a part of page builder, we are working on it in the near future.

Thank you :)

Yes I agree, that was our idea about this shortcode management, just for content elements only.

Thank you :)

I’m really appreciate your opinion.

We thought about that before, but the problem to release it now as a CC plugin is we don’t have enough shortcode to fits any blog in general.

The main 4 shortcode we have now are unique features of our theme, and the rest is usual shortcodes.

I think the near future we will work on a decent shortcode and we will release it in CodeCanyon.

Thank you :)
