Unfortunately, there is no automatic solution to correct this problem: you should either return to the old theme you were using, or manually adapt the content of your site using the tools provided by your new WordPress theme.

- Take the time to test and evaluate the quality of a theme before using it and adapting all of the content of your site
- Find and automatically delete unused shortcodes (article in English)
