    Hello forum,

    I want to create a shortcode that gets a custom URL in the blog posts. For this I have created the shortcode [sc name="pdf_url"]. After that I created the personal attribute %%url%%.
    In the blog editor, I now want to assign a URL to this shortcode, which will be included in a button on the post page (elementor pro theme).
    [sc name="pdf_url" url=""]
    Unfortunately the system gives me an error message:
    Safari cannot open the page “http://!–%20Shortcode%20is%20missing%20name%20attribute%20–“.
    what am i doing wrong?
    Thanks for your support – Elias

    Hi Elias,

    Thanks for using Shortcoder.

    When a shortcode is missing the “name” attribute it will print “shortcode is missing name attribute”. I can see the same on your side.

    For somereason I guess the “name” attribute is stripped while saving the post? Please use the “shortcoder” block if you are using block editor.

    Please share a screenshot of the usage if issue persists.
