Tonight I ran into the same issue that other forum goers have experienced as well:
I’m trying to use Shortcodes Ultimate within the Text Editor popup for Beaver Builder. The button is there – for a menu that’s quite important due to the number of options – but clicking it does nothing.
There is nothing of interest in the js console. This issue replicates with the free version of SU and the free version of BB in a clean dev environment. (Though I own a premium BB license and it was originally observed in the pro.)
Several other people have reported this but it was not resolved:
Rich Brooks stepped in tonight and assisted with some in depth troubleshooting and what we found was that in the WP backend, SU is able to load correctly. However, when front end loaded while running BB, several of the scripts are never called or loaded.
We were able to match this up to a very similar report – and fix – of another front end theme here: https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/shortcodes-ultimate-doesnt-pop-up-in-editor-anymore-after-coursepress-update
There is code changes from the creator of the editor as well as what appears to be a highly important code block provided by the author of Shortcodes Ultimate.
I need this plugin combination to work and am hoping that the above enables you to make more rapid progress on it.

Installed this plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/shortcodes-ultimate/
But when I click to insert a shortcode nothing happens, which apparently is not compatible with BB.
I wonder what shortcode plugin is 100% compatible with BeaverBuilder.
I am new to Beaver Builder but have spent the last 2 days familiarising myself with it and rebuilding 40 pages from my site / LMS (moving from Runway Framework + Visual Composer). I have used the BB theme and Beaver Builder to re-create some really complex pages and I love it; complex full width layouts are very simple and quick to produce…
Unfortunately, however, I am having problems using BB on pages which have additional HTML functionality and shortcodes embedded into them (ironically, they are actually quite simple layouts but have more interaction)…
I am using shortcodes to hide sections of premium content in the page (subscribers only) and some simple HTML snippets for addition of ‘goodies’ (such as a bootstrap modal which works really well).
I have experienced a few problems though – as soon as I embed shortcodes and HTML snippets into the page, it seems that all of the rows get ‘messed up’ and BB builder becomes unusable as I cannot select some rows or modules – here are links to a couple of screenshots:
- http://screencast.com/t/OP2hiAeF4IS (HTML module overlays accordion module and all subsequent modules)
- http://screencast.com/t/CPfbWEpx (3 rows are all highlighted when hovering over one and do not behave normally – again selecting rows/modules is problematic)
This seems to happen as soon as I put an HTML module on the page. When I remove the HTML module the rows start behaving normally again. This seems to be a problem only with some HTML snippets / shortcodes (some shortcodes/HTML does not cause a problem).
I have two questions:
1) How can I use a two part shortcode eg [loggedin]xxxx[/notloggedin] that hides premium content? As BB runs the shortcode, BB hides the content I am trying to edit (and I have to be logged in to edit it).
I could ‘comment out’ the shortcode and add it back in but some pages have numerous shortcodes to hide various panels and this is quite a time-consuming approach.
Is there any way I can make it so that the shortcode does not actually render (other than commenting each one out)?
2) I also wanted to use a two part shortcode from a third party plugin such as Shortcodes Ultimate (for example, a nice box layout or a tabbed section or accordion [that is not one of your modules]). They work if I put the whole shortcode in a text/html module but I wanted to have the start/end shortcodes in separate HTML modules then use BB to edit the content inside it…however, this does not seem to work as the row / module overlays / selections see to go awry and on some occasions the closing shortcode seemed to disappear completely. Is there any way I can fix this?
What would really help is if there were a simple tick box option on the HTML module to stop it rendering / running when in edit mode…or a ‘developer mode’ option somewhere at the module or page level that could be toggled on or off…
Does this make sense? If so, do you have any suggestions that would make my development of these pages using BB a bit easier?
Any help is gratefully received.
There is a conflict between BB and Shortcodes Ultimate that I’d like to remedy with Plugin Organizer. At least in part due to Font Awesome.
I’m using BB on the home page, but Shortcodes Ultmate on custom post types (courses, lessons) from an LMS.
Question: does BB CSS and other code load on post types that I do not enable in BB settings?
I’m testing this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/plugin-organizer/
This plugin allows you to do the following: 1. Change the order that your plugins are loaded. 2. Selectively disable plugins by any post type or wordpress managed URL. 3. Adds grouping to the plugin admin age.
