Ok So I have been looking around for an answer here for some time and really an coming up short of a solution. So here is the issue!
I created a custom theme. I am using no plugins on it. I installed contact form 7 and set up a contact form. I ten placed the shortcode in the editor for the page.
WordPress is not phrasing the shortcode and just displaying it as the shortcode tag.
Here is what I have done to track down the issue.
- Created a very basic blank theme and tried shortcode using the editor for a page. This still just output the shortcode tag
