Using a Theme's Shortcodes vs. a Stand-Alone Shortcodes Plugin

Using a Theme’s Shortcodes vs. a Stand-Alone Shortcodes Plugin

Shortcodes can help you stylize your website, add different functions (such as: tabs, tables, toggles, highlights, boxes etc.).

There are two main options to adding shortcodes to your website:

  1. Using a theme that has built-in shortcodes, for example: Headlines, Avada, OptimizePress 1.0 etc.
  2. Installing a stand-alone plugin such as: Shortcodes Ultimate

We personally have a “love-hate relationship” with shortcodes:

We love shortcodes because because they can really help improve users experience, the website’s look and feel and organize the content better.

We “hate” shortcodes because they can make the posts look messy if you use too many shortcodes in one post / page.

Using a Theme’s Shortcodes

The main downside of using a theme’s shortcodes is that it makes it more complicated to shift to a new theme if your content is wrapped with a lot of shortcodes, unless you are using a theme from the same company that supports the same shortcodes.

Just think about going over all the posts and pages of your website and changing their design and structure all over again…

Using a Stand-Alone Shortcodes Plugin

For the exact reason above we chose to work with a stand-alone plugin instead of relying on the theme’s built-in shortcodes.

We haven’t found any major downsides to using a stand-alone plugin, but there are two you might consider:

  1. If you don’t want to have too many plugins installed (though one more plugin won’t really make such a difference…)
  2. You are using a plugin that does not update on a regular and frequent basis. The WordPress platform releases frequent updates, so make sure you choose a popular plugin that has frequent updates, we recommend using Shortcodes Ultimate.

Here is a screenshot of Shortcodes Ultimate available shortcodes (enter a post and click on the “Insert Shortcode” button above the toolbar):
