some shortcodes not working (3 posts)

    I use shortcodes successfully in my site but the shortcode for one particular plugin (Social Sharing Toolkit) doesn't seem to work. I don't see the code but I also don't see the thing the code is calling for.

    Seeing as other shortcodes seem to be working, shall I assume this is a bug in the plug-in?

    It could be a conflict with another plugin. It's impossible to say without looking at the site, though.

    When a shortcode is created, it's basically a shortened version of a "call" function. So let's say the shortcode has its own "ID" and another plugin / theme has the same "ID." Which one is the correct one? Unfortunately, WP can't tell the difference so if there is a conflict that could be the reason. Or maybe a rule in your theme code or another plugin is overwriting the shortcode.

    So I wouldn't say it's a bug. All you can do is try to isolate the cause of the problem by de-activating plugins / changing themes and seeing if it works, or going to the plugin site and seeing if others are having a similar issue.

    Monrein,

    Try and enable "Include buttons in excerpts" option in Social Sharing Toolkit control panel. That worked for me, hope it will work for you too.
