Remove Orphan Shortcodes

Description

This is a simple plugin which automatically hides inactive (orphan) shortcode tags you have used for previous themes and/or plugins. It uses the_content filter to search for shortcode tags which are not active and simply removes them from your post/page content (note the shortode tags won’t be deleted from your content, they will just be removed temporarily on your website frontend). It is a great solution if you want to avoid manual removal of old shortcode tags from your entire content.

Why would anyone want to leave a useless plugin after the cleaning? Make it so it cleans and can be deleted. Otherwise what's the point? SMH

Does what it promises and never has created problems. Recommended.

Great plugin which comes of use when migrating content. Why is this stuff not in WP core??

Perfect! In a development phase where some half-backed features are temporary disabled or if you disable plugins when troubleshooting, you might end up with unsightly shortcodes here and there. Of course you can ask a client just to ignore it, but its hard for them to focus with shortcodes scattered around. I really like that I can disable my Ajax Search, Forms, Tables, Related Posts etc temporarily without any trace on the front-end. Thanks!
