MailPoet’s visual editor removes all shortcodes it finds in the posts you insert in your newsletter.
We have to do it because the majority of shortcodes insert HTML and styles that are not compatible with email clients.
The magic of MailPoet is that users don’t have to worry about consistent display across Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, iPhones, etc.
This is a huge advantage many email designers will recognize and appreciate. Not only does it save you time, but also a lot of frustration.
If there’s a very popular shortcode that you believe we should include nonetheless, let us know through the contact form.
What are shortcodes?
Shortcodes are little snippets that add all sorts of different things, like form, boxes, images, etc. in your posts.
They look like this: [myshortcode]
