I'm pretty new to wordpress and CMS's in general and am testing it in xampp for Windows.
I was interested in a plug-in that required shortcodes. I found that it didn't work, so I tried to use generic shortcodes and found that those didn't work either.
I tried typing the
[contact-form] shortcode in the body of a page and when I go to view it, the text appears wrapped in <p> tags and no form is shown. Am I missing something?
Another thing, anything I type in the HTML view of a post becomes automatically wrapped in <p> tags. Is this normal? Could this be causing my shortcode problem? How do I fix this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
