It appears there are still a large number of users making use of shortcodes in WordPress. The version 1.7 of Editus adds a new feature for post using shortcodes. When you enter the edit mode for a post containing shortcodes, it adds “Edit Shortcode” buttons to allow you to edit shortcodes from the frontend. This option can be disabled in the Settings page under the “Misc” options. If you would like to add a new shortcode, you can use the “Insert HTML or Code” button under the edit mode.
