Shortcodes Broken in Text Widgets (4 posts)

    When placing the shortcodes into the Text Widget, they are not processed by the WordPress engine. I see the shortcodes displayed directly into the content. I do not have this issue on Pages or Posts.

    right.... I don't think shortcodes actually work in text widgets....

    I believe adding

    add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');

    to functions.php will allow it

    Thank you for the reply. I would say that version 1.2 of Grunion processed the shortcodes correctly in WordPress 3.0.3. I will try your suggestion to make this work.

    Adding that function call into functions.php in the theme directory solved the problem. Thanks, Rev. Voodoo.
