WOW Slider
[resolved] shortcode doesn't work in widget (3 posts)

    The shortcode works fine when inserted into a page or post but it doesn't not work when used in a widget. I need to be able to use the slider on a home page widget (using static home page with Catalyst theme). Am I missing somethig?

    aha! I figured out another way. I used a PHP widget and was able to get the php snippet to work in the widget area I needed.

    Actually, you need WOWSlider PHP code, not simple shortcode. You can find a detailed instruction in FAQ:
