This package is marked as retired

This package was designed to work with Umbraco v4 to v6 only.
Due to other package commitments, I am no longer maintaining this package.


Shortcodes for Umbraco provides a filter that will parse your content pages for shortcodes, replacing them with the appropriate value.

This initial release uses shortcodes that support Macro parameter syntax and enabled RestExtension methods.

Quick examples

  • Place the following shortcode anywhere in your content (RTE, Razor, XSLT or template), and [#pageName] will return the name of the content page.
  • To use a RestExtension, try the following syntax: [{alias}:{method}({parameters})] ... e.g. [Shortcodes:Today(yyyy-MM-dd)]


TinyMCE integration - most definitely open for collaboration!


This package is for use with Umbraco 4.7+ and .NET 4.0 only! (It may work with Umbraco 4.6, but it is untested.)

Thanks to...
