    I’ve never used that plugin before, so can’t say why it’s not working. But my recommendation is to use an output filter to modify the output of Display Posts Shortcode to display links the way you want.

    I have pinpointed the problem but don’t know why it happens.

    If [display posts] shows posts then everything is ok.

    If [display posts] shows my custom post types then the above problem happens. Also all line breaks in the text contained in the post are lost and i have to add <p></p>.. something i don’t really need to do without [display posts]

    I’m sorry, but this sounds like an issue with your External Links Plugin, not Display Posts Shortcode. My plugin is properly outputting your listing of posts, but external links isn’t properly filtering them the way you want.

    not really! even without a link, the format of existing text on the post is altered (i.e. line spaces are not preserved). This only happens when i use the [display-posts] shortcode and the output is custom post types.

    @bill Display Posts Shortcode should apply the_permalink filters (same with the_title)

    apply_filters( 'the_permalink', get_permalink() )

    Ah, I didn’t realize get_permalink() and get_the_title() didn’t have the filters already applied.

    I just updated the development version, which you can download here ( https://github.com/billerickson/display-posts-shortcode/archive/master.zip ).

    @neodjandre, can you test this and see if this fixes it for you?

    ok i will but it’s bad timing.. i am upgrading to a dedicated managed server and all my websites are down.. shows how much of a good provider i have.. then i will probably need to upgrade my databases, so it looks like i will be testing this next week – will keep you posted

    Hello Bill,

    Sorry for the late response. I just tested this and unfortunately i am still facing the same issues.

    i.e. the format of existing text on the post is altered (i.e. line spaces are not preserved)

    This only happens when i use the [display-posts] shortcode and the output is custom post types.
