Under settings > DW Shortcodes Options, I disabled both css and js due to the fact my theme already has them. When I do so I get PHP errors. I tracked down the errors and found a workaround. Basically what happens is the 'dwsc_options' option in the 'wp_options' table gets set to nothing. Instead it should get set to zeros like so:
This fixes the php erorrs however the options screen should really be doing this.
