Support » Plugin: Ninja Forms - The Easy and Powerful Forms Builder » Ninja Forms Lite – Shortcode Displaying Instead of Form

  • Resolved rebeccan


    I just installed Ninja Forms Lite after testing it on another WordPress site to make sure it would do what I want it to do. (It does!)

    But when I installed it on the live site and configured a form, the widget shows the shortcode, not the form:

    I’ve tried disabling all the plugins except for Ninja Forms Lite, but I was still just seeing the shortcode. I’m running WordPress 3.3.2 with a template called Red Fred by Mojo Themes.

    Any ideas?

    Text widgets by default do not parse shortcodes. I’m not sure if you were using a different theme or what but that;s the problem.

    Add this to your themes functions.php file and it should work just fine.

    add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');
