[resolved] Problems with Shortcode in normal posts [newbie] (3 posts)

    Dear mates, I am totally new to WordPress on my own home server.

    I tried to use the WordPress shortcodes in one of
    my posts,
    e.g. like
    [youtube=...]

    but got no correct result. The shortcodes used were not
    interpreted as I would assume.

    I switched off all plugins and switched back to the wordpress 2010
    standard theme.

    My questions are:

    1) What could be the reason for this problem?
    2) Is there somewhere a list of standard shortcodes for this release?

    By the way: I also tried some latex plugins and had no success as well.

    So either I missed totally the conception or there is really something
    wrong.

    Would be really great if somebody helps me out of this mine field.

    Thx a lot, mates, in advance and sorry in case I should not
    use the terminology correctly (I am really a complete greenhorn)

    Cheers

    Stephan

    No worries, [youtube] is a shortcode that only works on WordPress.COM sites. When you have a self hosted WordPress site, it's not available by default. This plugin looks promising: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/youtube-shortcode/
