There are many shortcode plugins, but I found this one quite useful in comparison

I have a completely custom-developed theme from a previous developer and didn't provide any option to create certain widgets or layouts. Adding any plugin had deep concerns of compatibility and design customizations but "WordPress Shortcodes Plugin — Shortcodes Ultimate" worked without any issue and provided easy customization so that I easily matched the design requirements. Very happy with the plugin and highly recommend it.
