rewrite the shortcode parser to support nested shortcodes and self-nested shortcodes

December 26, 2018 · 04:47 · Greg Schoppe
Description

The current shortcode parser is based on a single regular expression, making it error-prone and incapable of many useful features, such as nesting two instances of the same shortcode.

Here is a proof of concept parser for shortcodes that supports nesting and self-nesting out of the box: https://github.com/gschoppe/Better-Shortcode-Parser
