Why does Google Optimizer not work on my website?

Check the “Add JavaScript code” field in the options page of Content Switcher. Check also the “Google Optimizer Account Tracking ID” field in the same page. Check the “header.php” and “footer.php” files of your WordPress theme. Make sure that the first contains a call to “wp_head” and the second contains a call to “wp_footer”.

How can I use shortcodes in my WordPress theme?

Insert into the PHP files of your theme a code like this:

<?php echo do_shortcode('[your-shortcode]'); ?>
How to use shortcodes in comments?

Edit the “functions.php” file (create it if it doesn’t exist) of your WordPress theme and add this line of code:

add_filter('comment_text', 'do_shortcode');
