I pasted a shortcode line in a page. After updating and viewing the page, only the shortcode line is visible in the said page and not the expected result, which should be a slideshow (a la youtube window). This is the example of the shortcode line: [houzz=http://www.houzz.com/pro/viridis/espaces-viridis w=300]
I manage another wordpress web and shortcodes work without any problems in that case; curiously, both webs have identical versions of wordpress installed with the same photocrati theme. I've tried a WP forum suggestion of deactivating my plugins, clearing the cache and trying to make it work that way, but no dice. is there something obvious I've overlooked? Kind of a newby here, so I'm at a loss with this one.
Any suggestions, help or insights would be appreciated.
