Is there any way in which i can show custom shortcodes inside the editor panel, I have a bunch that I've created and thought it would be a good idea?

Not found anything online other than tutorials on how to create them - which I already know.

  • normally how shortcode work first thing is this so create a function and creat its short code by add_shortcode('shortcode','functionname') you can get detail on wordpress codex for this after that you can call the shortcode in this [shortcode] or if you want to call it in template then use do_shortcode([shortcode]); Commented Sep 19, 2013 at 10:45

Having stumbled across this (really late), here is the answer as posted on the wordpress forum by MichaelH:

global $shortcode_tags;
echo "<pre>"; print_r($shortcode_tags); echo "</pre>";

Putting it here so anyone searching here might find it.
