Support » Plugin: Display Posts - Easy lists, grids, navigation, and more » display-posts stopped working?

  • I am having trouble getting anything to display. The plugin used to work until recently, my plugins have not changed, so maybe the recent updates has something to do with it?

    1. have tried activating a different theme, still no luck
    2. have tried deactivating, deleting and re-installing the plugin

    A typical shortcode string for me would be:

    [display-posts post_type=”Artists” taxonomy=”artist-link” tax_term=”exhibition” taxonomy_2=”artist” tax_2_term=”yoko ono” orderby=”date” order=”DESC”]

    I have tried with just [display-posts] and still no luck.

    Appreciate your help! Thanks

  • Hey mossgreen

    I have had the same problem as you all morning, and I found out that I can’t use ANY shortcodes in widgets. Both title and text/content.

    So I wen’t into functions.php and added do_shortcode() to the filter-hooks: widget_title, widget_text:

    // Allow shortcodes in widget title.
    function hs_shortcode_widget_title( $title ) {
    	return do_shortcode( $title );
    add_filter( 'widget_title', 'hs_shortcode_widget_title' );
    // Allow shortcodes in widget text/content.
    function hs_shortcode_widget_text( $content ) {
    	return do_shortcode( $content );
    add_filter( 'widget_text', 'hs_shortcode_widget_text' );

    Sebatianks, how did you figure out these hooks, what might they look like for getting this to work on pages/posts? Do you run with canvas theme as well? Thanks

    Tried this, but doesnt work, maybe because im using custom post types.

    // Allow shortcodes in custom post text/content.
    function hs_shortcode_post_content( $content ) {
    return do_shortcode( $content );
    add_filter( ‘the_content‘, ‘hs_shortcode_post_content’ );

    NenadDim, thanks, but I am not showing the excerpt.

    I have just discovered that [display-posts] works on pages / posts but NOT on Custom Posts.

    Custom posts plugin has no settings that I can see that would allow or not allow display posts to work.
