Hi everyone,

We are using shortcodes for a number of features on our site, and for
experienced users, they are super easy. However, for basic users, or for
people who only occasionally need to make edits, facing a page full of
[shortcode = , ""][/shortcode] is quite daunting. It's manageable to insert
a new shortcode, but trickier to edit ones that already exist, especially
if photos are involved.

Do you have any recommendations for how to make shortcodes either more
visual (on the backend) or more user-friendly? Have any of you tried
something like the Visual Composer <http://demo.wpbakery.com/vc/> with

Thanks for any ideas,
