Several years ago I started using a "visual page builder". You just couldn't create complex pages that fast and easy without one. The time and effort to write the html/css was just not worth it. Fast forward to Gutenberg and my slow, clunky page builder became obsolete. I started the meticulous task of removing short-codes and editing hundreds of pages. As I came across them-I would fix them, hoping one day-I would get all of them-but how would I know for sure? Then I came across this plugin and gave it a shot. Glad I did! It easily found hundreds of short-codes with a link to each post/page. It took me a few days-but I just finished removing the last one. I was so impressed I came here to write a review. This plugin is just great. If you need to find/remove/edit short-codes, there is nothing better. Just perfect.

The plugin did exactly what it advertised! It didn't take over the menu (having a top level menu!), it was hidden under the "Tools" menu where it should be. +1 to the devs of this plugin.

The plugin works as intended, and as of the latest version (1.5.2) it also works with weForms. I've left my old review below in case anyone encounters the same problem, but this problem has no longer occurred on the latest version, so everything is working as intended. The author was very responsive in dealing with my concerns (as you can see from our exchange below), and even took the extra step to add support for weForms. A well-deserved 5 stars. -------------------------------------------------- The text below is my old review (before 1.5.2) and is left up only in case anyone else encounters the issue. The plugins, today, works as intended. Right after installation, this plugin caused WordPress to generate an infinite 302 redirect loop for any logged-in user trying to access the admin dashboard. The front-end worked fine. None of the admin pages were accessible. The infinite redirect loop caused the page to never load, making the browser show an error because it realizes it's never going to end. Removing the files of this plugin via FTP or other external method fixed the problem. It may be due to an incompatibility with another plugin (most plugins installed are well-known ones like WooCommerce, LifterLMS, WP Fastest Cache, Rank Math SEO, Redis Object Cache). Either way, it shouldn't be doing this. Adapting the following code in the file shortcodes-finder/admin/class-shortcodes-finder-admin.php: if ( is_admin() && get_option( 'activated_plugin' ) == SHORTCODES_FINDER_PLUGIN_SLUG ) { delete_option( 'activated_plugin' ); exit( wp_redirect( admin_url( 'tools.php?page='. SHORTCODES_FINDER_PLUGIN_SLUG ) ) ); } to: if ( is_admin() && get_option( 'activated_plugin' ) == SHORTCODES_FINDER_PLUGIN_SLUG ) { delete_option( 'activated_plugin' ); //exit( wp_redirect( admin_url( 'tools.php?page='. SHORTCODES_FINDER_PLUGIN_SLUG ) ) ); } which disables the redirect, also fixed the problem. After enabling, a second concern shows up: Although it recognizes some shortcodes (like LifterLMS and WooCommerce), it does not suggest the shortcode for weForms. "Find by Content" does find the used weForms shortcodes, but also lists all other shortcodes on all pages. Two stars since applying my manual edit makes the plugin run, and although it doesn't recognize weForms shortcodes it does help to eventually get there (with false positives) via "Find by Content".
