  12. Shortcode_Atts_{$Shortcode}
    ● Override the default shortcode attributes
    ● Ignore certain attribute values from the user and instead
    use the defaults
    ● Generally modify the behavior of a shortcode without
    modifying the original shortcode function.
    For example: You could add a copyright to all
    image captions from the Gallery shortcode.
