    I tried to avoid shortcodes in themes and plugins as much as possible.

    What if I added some features to my blog posts via theme shortcodes or using plugin and then after some time I want to change plugin or theme.

    What if author stops updating and supporting theme or plugin. Or plugin starts to conflict with other plugins.

    What then? I am left with hundreds of post I need to manually edit.

      If you plan to add only a few shortcodes, adding them via functions.php is fine, but anything more than that you should create a custom plugin specifically for shortcodes, to avoid issues later on when deciding to switch to a different theme.

    Thanks for this! I love using shortcodes. I write a lot of blog posts and website copy. It saves me so much time. Thank you for this list, I’ve learned a lot and look forward to trying out a few new ones!
