Support » Plugin: bbPress2 shortcode whitelist » I can not get my shortcode to work on bbpress

  • Resolved csmithny06


    I have installed both bbPress2 BBCode and bbPress2 shortcode whitelist. The short code I am using is from the Google Doc Embedder plugin the code is [gview file=”https://path to file name here”] I have tried adding the full short code to the white list and just [gview] but in both case the bbpress still just show the short code text. The short code works fine outside of bbpress.

    In the ‘settings’ page for the whitelist, have you added gview to the list of safe codes without the [ brackets?

    If this is the only extra shortcode you need, it should read simply:


    Otherwise a comma delimited list, such as:


    I had planned to make a more friendly admin interface at some point…

    Hello, antonchanning.

    I have the same issue. I want to use [slideshow_deploy id="250"] in the forum.

    So, in the ‘settings’ page, I have tried slideshow_deploy, slideshow_deploy id="250" and slideshow_deploy id=250 but it doesn’t show.

    Can you please help me? Thanks you in advance.

    On the settings page you only need to add:


    The whitelist doesn’t know about attributes, so putting them in the list would just confuse things. All attributes and possible values should be enabled if the shortcode tag is enabled. If you want the slideshow with id=250 enabled, but not the slideshow with 249 or some other number, then I’m sorry but I can’t really help just now.

    Again, sorry for the basic settings interface. I will get around to improving this in time.

    i had the same problem with leaguemanager (match and standings shortocodes), but it was a w3 cache problem…

    if you use any cache system/plugin try to purge/refresh it
