Plugin Description :
Preview and customize WooThemes shortcodes before inserting them. This plugin
adds the Shortcode Ninja button to the Visual Editor.

Click on the Ninja button and pick one of the many WooThemes shortcodes from the
list. You can set shortcode attribues and see a preview of the result before
inserting the shortcode into the post. The active theme must be from
WooThemes.com with a recent version of the WooFramework installed.

* **All Shortcodes In One Place**

    No need to memorize all shortcodes. Access all 18 built-in WooThemes shortcodes from the Ninja Button in the Visual Editor.

* **Live Preview**

    Customized shortcode or the default look – either way you see a preview of what the result will look like in the post.

* **Create Column Layouts Like a Pro**

    Decide how many columns you want. Click on the different column sizes to add them. Insert. Done.
