    Anyone knows how to use shortcode in excerpt?

    I tried adding filter as follow, but doesn't work.

    add_filter( 'the_excerpt', 'shortcode_unautop');
    add_filter( 'the_excerpt', 'do_shortcode');

    Make sure your theme is using the_excerpt and not get_the_excerpt :)

    Same issue, WordPress 3.3.1

    Childtheme of 'toolbox'

    Call is the_excerpt();

    In functions.php add_filter('the_excerpt', 'do_shortcode');

    I have tested by switching to the_content, and that is fine, so something is not happening with the_excerpt. Did you get resolution?
