That line of code you mentioned, will allow shortcodes to be used in any of the themes sidebars. So basically, shortcodes should work no matter whether you’re using them in the blog sidebar areas or in the footer widget areas
Thanks for the reply Anthony.
Yes, that line of code will activate shortcodes for any of the widget areas (sidebars & such); but it doesn’t seem to do anything for the “footer content area” that’s set within the Theme Options panel.
So, I don’t mean footer widgets, but the extra text area in the Quark theme options where you can enter content that will display at the very bottom of the site’s pages.
YES. That works perfectly. Thank you so much! Since this credits section is often used for a copyright, it’s nice to be able to create a “[year]” shortcode that displays the current year and use it in this area. Thanks again (for this & the great theme)!
