Getting the shortcode to work if placed in theme ? (4 posts)

    I want to have the short code render in part of index.php.

    Does anyone know how to do this so it actually works? When I put the shortcode in the index php (even in a div), it just renders as the code - instead of the list of posts.

    Thanks

    nknews as alchymyth said, you can use the do_shortcode function on your index.php file.

    Use something like:

    <?php
        do_shortcode('[catlist id=5]');
    ?>

    Hi there... i know it's an old tread, but i'm having problems on using do_shortcode in my index.php file. Is it possible that this function only works into templates?
