    You have to go to Appearance > Widgets (see: https://codex.wordpress.org/Appearance_Widgets_Screen) and add your widgets there. The shortcode is displayed below each widget.
    Checkout the screenshots in the plugin’s page: https://wordpress.org/plugins/widget-shortcode/

    No need to go to Appearance and Widgets because it is shortcode!
    What is shortcode? Right, it is some keyword you can place anywhere in your web site, not only spesific places listed in Appearance and Widgets page!
    So, when I place [widget] in my editor – I see nothing instead of it…
    Just for example ‘Ultimate Social Media Icons PLUS’ plugin works well, just let drop [DISPLAY_ULTIMATE_PLUS] shortcode any place in your code. It works without hassle and conflicts with other plugins. I’m using Page Builder and some other plugins.

    The problem is [widget] (the shortcode you’re using) doesn’t mean anything. What widget should be displayed? With what settings?

    So the way the plugin works is: it “turns” your widgets into shortcodes. Your existing widgets become shortcodes you can put anywhere. So go to Appearance > Widgets, select a widget you want (see this screenshot: https://ps.w.org/widget-shortcode/assets/screenshot-1.png) and then copy that shortcode that you see below the widget settings. Now paste that anywhere you like and the widget will appear there. Magic!

    Please could you leave some mark of this all you wrote on the info/FAQ/installation page? I guess it is not hard for you and may help many other new users like me.

    The problem is [widget] (the shortcode you’re using) doesn’t mean anything.

    It was great if [widget] does mean basic help or short instruction what to do further ).
    The problem is – no information… just empty space.

    You are giving direct instruction ) Please correct this
    if [widget] doesn’t mean anything.
    Also I see the same instruction in FAQ page!

    Where I can see the list of available shortcodes (fuctions)?
    Couls you please provide it to Description page?

    I corrected 1 star feedback to 3 stars.
