A small plugin which allows you to use nested shortcodes (i.e. a shortcode within an enclosing shortcode) by implementing a simple “do_shortcode” filter as per the WordPress Codex to content and widgets – see https://codex.wordpress.org/Shortcode_API#Nested_Shortcodes and https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/do_shortcode
Install automatically through the ‘Plugins’, ‘Add New’ menu in WordPress, or upload the ‘nested-shortcodes’ folder to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory.
Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
Test by nesting a shortcode within an enclosing shortcode.
