You remember Symple Shortcodes right? Your favorite free shortcodes plugin? Well what was a pretty awesome plugin just got better. Welcome to Symple Shortcodes 2.0 – more features, builder compatibility and more!
Feature Packed Free Plugin
First a bit about the plugin…
We realize there are a lot of free shortcode plugins out there but we’ve set out to make ours one of the best. By including full support for the TinyMCE editor so you can easily insert shortcodes without having to memorize them (or their parameters), including many shortcodes not normally found in free plugins (post grid, post slider, post carousel, pricing table, image carousel, image slider..etc) and proving full support for the Visual Composer page builder, Symple Shortcodes will definitely stand out from the crowd! Plus we’ve added support for auto updates via WP-Updates.com to make sure our users always have the latest version of the plugin as we strive to make it even better and bug free.
So What’s New In v2.0.0?
So instead of rambling along about all the awesome stuff (it’s best if you just download it and test it out) here is a little bullet list of the updates done in version 2.0.0 (you can also head over to the changelog if you prefer).
- Plugin re-structuring – aka moved some files around and changed the way some core functions work
- Updated included scripts
- Updated the buttons to be flat and more modern
- Updated the social icons to use a different set (soon to become font-icons instead)
- Added some new modules previously available in the premium version only (Post Grid, Post Slider, Post Carousel, Image Slider, Image Carousel, bullets, font icon)
- Added support for the Visual Composer page builder for most modules (tabs, accordions, toggles haven’t been added do to their complexity)
What You Shouldn’t Do…
I have seen a lot of developers carelessly dump the Symple Shortcodes plugin into their WordPress theme’s to make it look like they spent a lot of hard work and time adding great shortcodes to their theme (wrong). If you want to include the plugin for your customers please use the TGM Activation script and let your users know about the plugin so they can take advantage of all the features and updates. Plus, I have spent a great amount of time creating and updating this plugin, so a little bit of credit would be nice (as opposed to you taking full credit for something you didn’t do – shame on you!).
Update your plugin or if you aren’t using it yet and want to give it a try download it via the button below. It’s important to note that not everyone will be able to update their plugin automatically because auto updates wasn’t added until recently, so if you don’t see an update notice in your dashboard please re-download and install the plugin (sorry for the inconvenience).
