I discovered that many purchasers don’t notice that visible mode of wordpress is working not as plain mode. So, once you copy one thing from different websites and paste snippets in content material, you may get not anticipated outcomes. Let me clarify

For instance, I’ll copy shortcode of S2member from their docs.

I copied shortcode in visible editor in wordpress and what I bought? Nothing. It’s as a result of I copied simply html code of codebox from their website as an alternative of plain code. To make certain, I change to textual content mode of editor and that is what I see

It doesn’t look the identical factor which I copied. It is because visible editor, by default, renders additionally any html code.

What’s the correct manner to insert copied shortcodes?

WordPress has good button “Paste as textual content”

That is what you want to use for correct inserting shortcodes and another textual content from different websites.
