    the short code does not produce a listing but just exchoes the shortcode

    HOMES FOR SALE (title of Text widget)

    Hi,

    Are you sure the plugin is enabled?

    Check through your Dashboard, clicking Plugins.

    Yes it was active but I missed the fine print about it not working within widgets, so I got a widget shortcode plugin and all is well, although I'd like to reduce that overhead of having to add a plugin to get a plugin to work.

    It is not one of the advertized features of the plugin. However, we might adhere to your suggestion in the future.

    Most likely a $35 add-on

    There is no need for a widget shortcode plugin if you want to do away with that.

    Just open your theme's functions.php file and place the following code:

    // Enable shortcodes in widgets
    add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');

    The aggregator shortcode will then work as usual.
