ShortCodes UI
[resolved] Advanced Shortcodes Not Displaying - Including Demo (3 posts)

    I've been playing around with Shortcodes UI, trying to understand how to build something there with PHP which I am brand new to, so I thought the fact that absolutely nothing was happening on the test posts where I was inserting a few widgets using some sample coding was me.

    I decided to try the demo for the PayPal donation button, and it won't display either. The shortcode for the PayPal demo is currently at the link below, and to point out WHERE it should be, I added two sets of lines like this ----------, one above and one below the shortcode:
    http://grassrootsne.com/testsite2/test-post/

    Using Safari's web inspector, I see this in the code, in the small blank space where the PayPal thing should be showing up:

    <a href="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_xclick&business=admin@bainternet.info&item_name=Donation for The most awesome WordPress Plugin Ever!!!" title="The most awesome WordPress Plugin Ever!!!"></a>

    Simple shortcodes WILL / DO display, however, such as one of the demos and a box I created, all of which you can see at the bottom of the same post.

    Any ideas about what's going on?

    Thank you

    This may very well be a problem with the theme framework I use, Catalyst Theme. I've deactivated this plugin for the present, and have added a second posting to a question I asked on there, which is more detailed.

    In the meantime, anything known about whether or not it is theme specific or if there is an emerging problem would be appreciated.

    Here is a general link to the theme framework site: http://catalysttheme.com/

    Can't say that I'm able to replicate since i don't have Catalyst Theme or access to the forum link you posted and I'm not aware of a problem using advanced shortcodes in general so i could be a theme specific.

    Try changing your theme and then see if it works for you.

    also it could be a conflict with another plugin...
