Description

[my-shortcode] is a valid WordPress shortcode. If I'm on Visual Editor mode and paste the shortcode it's now a Shortcode, right. It's ok.

But now I want to say my visitors, hey this is my shortcode: [my-shortcode], you can use it., now when WordPress is rendering the page, it's thinking it's a shortcode, and producing a blank area there. I tried the HTML mode of the editor, and revamped the area with [my-shortcode] updated the page, it's working great, but...

If I switch back to the Visual mode it's forgetting that it's not a shortcode, making it shortcode again, and so so...

Try [[my-shortcode]].

Yes that solved the issue. In fact it worked in both the ways:

In visual editor: [[my-shortcode]]
In text mode: <code>[[my-shortcode]]</code>

Thanks a lot. :)
