Get List Of All Available Shortcodes

WordPress shortcodes allow you to run a small function of code must by placing the name of the function inside a tag, such as [shortcode].

The best thing about WordPress shortcodes is that you can use them anywhere in your WordPress theme. They are very useful for running PHP code inside a WordPress post on your blog.

But the problem is that after a while of running your blog they can slowly start to become a large and unmanageable list of codes.

This WordPress snippet is a quick way of display all the WordPress shortcodes you have available on your blog.

All you have to do is create a new page in your WordPress theme and add the following code.

<?php
        global $shortcode_tags;
        echo '<pre>'; 
        print_r($shortcode_tags); 
        echo '</pre>';
?>

If you want to turn this into a WordPress plugin which creates a page for you to display all the shortcodes available all you have to do is use the code below to create your own plugin.

Just create a new folder in the wp-content, in this folder add a new php file and copy the following code.

<?php
/*

if(is_admin())
{
	// Create the Paulund toolbar
	$shortcodes = new View_All_Available_Shortcodes();
}

/**

	public function Admin(){

	/**

			array(&$this,'Display_Admin_Page'));
	}

	/**
	 * Display the admin page
	 */
	public function Display_Admin_Page(){
		global $shortcode_tags;

        ?>
        <div class="wrap">
        	<div id="icon-options-general" class="icon32"><br /></div>
			<h2>View All Available Shortcodes</h2>
			<div class="section panel">
				<p>This page will display all of the available shortcodes that you can use on your WordPress blog.</p>
        	<table class="widefat importers">
        		<tr><td><strong>Shortcodes</strong></td></tr>
        <?php

	        foreach($shortcode_tags as $code => $function)
	        {
	        	?>
	        		<tr><td>[<?php echo $code; ?>]</td></tr>
	        	<?php
	        }
	    ?>

			</table>

		<?php
