I have a class built for accessing my company's API. I want to build a set of shortcodes inside a class, which extends my existing API access class. I figure this would be more efficient and cleaner than writing a bunch of functions.
I started off with a couple of functions to get things rolling, and once they worked as expected I wrapped them up into a class. Now I keep getting the following error:
Fatal error: Using $this when not in object context in ...
I assume I am getting this because of how I am using
add_shortcode, which is by calling:
add_shortcode("shortcodename", array("classname", "methodname"))
I'm guessing this tries to call the method like this:
classname::methodname(), which requires my methods to be static, and any methods they call from within the class to be static as well? Is there any way around this? Or is there a different way to call shortcodes from a class without requiring them to be static?
