Landing Page Details

Visual Composer Shortcode Viewer allows you view, edit, add any shortcode/element on Visual Composer interface.

At the moment, you need to switch into Classic Mode and find the shortcode or shortcodes for individual elements or sections of content with hundreds of lines of shortcodes and all those confusing.

Disadvantage of Classic Mode:

  • You miss a tag each when cut and paste.
  • Copy from the wrong spot.
  • Select the wrong shortcodes all together.
  • You couldn’t find what you needed easily and quickly in classic mode.

Advantage of Visual Composer Shortcode Viewer:

  • Find shortcode would be easier.
  • Copy and paste would be exactly.
  • Edit / Update / Add any shortcode with JSON format easier.
  • Works fine on Back-end & Front-end
  • Do not need switch to Classic mode, allow show shortcode on VC interface

    Hi In VC if I create a link it gets ecoded in the shortcake to "||?" How will your plugin handle that? Will a migration tool like Duplicator able to find and replace those links? Regards Olle

    Hi, This plugin show any VC shortcode or text or 3rd party shortcode same as Classic mode. Ex: you switch from VC Backend mode to Classic mode, you will see all text, with this addon you will see it on Backend mode instead of switch to Classic mode. You can check video review to see this. Thanks :)

    I see. Have seen that. But my question was regarding the Json code I think. In Classic mode VC shortcode links is encoded to example||?” Migration tools like Duplicator can not find and replace that link. In the video I can see a link that have normal encoding in the Json format. So is Duplicator going to find that and replace it when migration a site to a new destination. Regards

    Not sure if this plugin is for me, or maybe one of your others is. What I'm trying to do is build a number of custom elements that I can reuse on other sites. Such as when you buy a theme and visual composer comes with custom elements from the theme author that they have added in. I would like to make some of those that I can re-use on multiple WP sites using visual composer. Basically they would just be HTML/CSS pre made elements. Thanks, Matt

    Hi, first of all thanks for this userful plugin! After working for a bit 'of time I still have a small problem: in visual composer 4.x and 5.x the shortcode view is too small compared to the shortcode window. If you would like I shared a screenshot. I experienced it with different themes and configuration. Thanks.

    SORRY AFTER 2 MONTHS I can't accept an answer like that. Sure you can expand the JSON tab but, as you can clearly see in the following screenshot, there is maybe a bug in the shortcode TEXT tab:

    Hello! Is it possible to edit the "shortcode" of a specific element without affecting the "shortcode" from the rest of other elements? Example: I need to edit each item to add a custom H4 class different to everyone: title-red, title-blue, title-green, and so on... Thanks!

    As you see in video preview, shortcode viewer can show json format of any shortcode (include all params and content element.) So you can view/edit/add any shortcode follow json format, then you can save it. This addon supported to convert from json format and save it into Visual composer. Please check video preview to ensure you know save funtion works fine with VC editor? Thanks for your interesting :)

    I found an incompatibility with a much used plugin called Massive Addons for Visual Composer: When I have your plugin enabled, the preview function of Massive Addons for VC freezes. When I disable Shortcode Viewer, the preview in the other plugin works fine. I have informed the other author as well. Maybe you guys can work something out.

    Well, it seems you have abondoned this plugin, but the author of the other plugin has found the cause of the problem. Your plugin is overwriting jQuery UI styles with this code: .ui-front {z-index: 19979 !important;} It is unclear why you use this style. I removed it and the problem is gone. Both plugins now work fine alone and together.

    Hello. I have watched some videos on how to copy Elements using this Plugin, but there is nothing that show me that this is possible to do between two different sites. (The videos just show how to do this within on site...). Are you sure it works, and do you hav a video for how to do this? I would be a very happy guy if you could confirm that this works - and even better make a short video for me while you are doing it.... Thank you! Best Regards; Morten S:)

    With export and import feature of Save Load Element addon, you can export all template saved on website-1 and import it into website-2. It will works fine when both your site use same shortcode/theme. That addon do not support convert shortcode between two websites. You can check demo video at here: Thanks
