Trigger a shortcode created outside Shortcodes Pro:

Shortcodes Pro works with shortcodes created trough it’s UI, however there are ways to work around this as you can do advanced things using PHP to process the shortcode. When selecting PHP all the attributes are available in the $atts array and the content/selection in the $content variable.

Here is a simple example ( using PHP ):

$content = do_shortcode($content); // process shortcodes
return $content;
