Description

Hello,

Just wanted to flag that the shortcodes which are present within Plugin Description work on the Plugin Directory but not in the 'View Details' popup in the Plugin listing on an install, screen;

  • Component changed from General to Plugin Directory

  • Keywords 2nd-opinion added

What security implications would this have (ie rendering shortcodes within the API)?

Is this a regression from the old API?

I believe the limited whitelisted shortcodes did work in the previous API.
Core has a wp_kses() over the API output which may strip/block/prevent the embeds though.
