Handling Shortcodes

As we have seen above that you need to add shortcodes after creating the class’ instance, but if you don’t want to do this again and again, then there is yet another option for you.

This way, you will not need to add the shortcodes again and again. For more clarification, please check the __construct() object of the class.
