Support » Plugin: Weather Underground » After deactivating WP Underground, No other Shortcodes work in Text Widgets

  • Resolved mharpen


    Yikes, this is serious… After deactivating or uninstalling WP Underground, I can no longer use any other shortcodes that are available with my theme. This WP Underground plugin seems to have left something behind which kills the ability to use any shortcodes in widgets after the plug is uninstalled. I’ve proven it’s WP Underground plugin causing it, because if I reinstall WP underground, my other shortcodes in other text widgets work. But as soon as I deactivage WP Underground plugin, none of them work and I only see the shortcode text rendered. For example, my theme allows shortcodes such as: [icon image=”accepted” align=”left” width=”48″]. This works fine when WP Underground is activated, but when it’s deactivated, all I see is the shortcode text in the rendered widget area. It doesn’t matter what shortcode I use.

    In other words, shortcodes provided by my theme stop working after deactivating or removing WP Underground. I’ve tried deleting my other text widgets and re-creating them, but nothing works! The only thing I can do is activate WP Underground, even though I’m not using it anywhere.

    PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS ASAP. And let us know what we need to do to solve this. Something must be left behind in the database or somewhere by this plugin when deactivating or uninstalling it.

    This is not a problem with the Wunderground plugin.

    Wunderground adds the following line of code that enables that functionaly:

    add_filter( 'widget_text', 'do_shortcode' );

    If you add that to your theme’s functions.php file, it will work the same way.

    I’m so sorry Zack. Thank you! My bad for not finding that out myself.
