I am using your wonderful, great plugin SHORTCODER as a CSS “template” to output some data in the style I want it
Here is the example of my “template”
The shortcodes prt01 – prt 07 contain HTML inline css style code
Then I fill in text in my “template” in the example below I name it my text 01 – 06
In reality I fill in data I want to show on my web page later
Each set of “my text 01 – 06” I save as a new SHORTCODE to use it later in my web page elementor short code section
my text 01
my text 02
my text 03
my text 04
my text 05 = url
my text 06
An example of the real web page on my website is found here
I will have some 50 shortcodes based on that “template”
- My question
I would need the data I am writing in my text 01 – 06 manually at other locations on my web site too
Is it possible to save and retrieve that data other than creating for each one a own SHORTCODE which would result in some 300 more shortcodes and that would make the management of all these shortcodes quite tiresome and unorganized
Do you have an idea of how to solve that problem
1) I would be a very useful feature to allow several values in one shortcode
x values (probably: x = 1 – 9)
2) Allow groups of Shortcodes to better manage large amounts of shortcodes
Thanks again for such a superb and helpful plugin

Thanks for using Shortcoder. Happy that you like the plugin.
So as I can understand, you will be creating multiple shortcodes for the text “my text 0x” which has to be used elsewhere.
So my suggestions are
1) Utilize “custom parameters”
i.e Create 1 shortcode, have placeholders in them and change the value when you are using them in posts/pages. See below page for the documentation.
b) https://www.aakashweb.com/docs/shortcoder/shortcode-parameters/ (shortcode enclosed content)
2) Manage multiple shortcodes by assigning tags using which you can filter.
Regarding your proposal, I’m happy that you have taken time and have shared it with me. I’ll sure evaluate and consider them based on the multiple user requests and efforts needed from my side to implement the same.
For now please do try above suggestions which I think would be helpful.
