#34090 closed enhancement (fixed)

Prevent Registration of Invalid Shortcode Names

Reported by: miqrogroove Owned by: wonderboymusic
Milestone: 4.4 Priority: high
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Shortcodes Keywords: roadmap has-patch
Focuses: Cc:


All versions of the Shortcode API have allowed registration of any shortcode name, even though certain characters would be impossible to use inside of a shortcode.

In addition to specifying which shortcode delimiters are reserved, we also need to prevent any use of HTML special characters in shortcode names.
