  • Where is your site, show us a page that it isn’t working on and what plugin you’re using

    My site requires login to enter, so:

    First login: http://sorholmen.no/wp-login.php/
    Login information:
    Username: guest
    Password: guestpass

    Then go to: http://sorholmen.no/kontakt/
    – This is one example, this plugin is FS Contact Form.

    Another example: http://sorholmen.no/bilder/
    – This is another example, here the plugin is Facebook Photo Page.

    @gitominoti, do you know whats the problem?
    -The shortcodes was working until today.

    I posted this yesterday, but still no answer from Gitominoti… Someone else can help me maybe?

    I’ve had this happen a few times. When shortcodes fail, it is either because the plugin that drives them has become deactivated/failed or because the text representing the shortcode was turned into HTML.

    Go to the Post/Page editor and look at the Kontakt page, click on the HTML tab to edit in HTML view and look at the page content. Do you see it marked up with HTML tags around it? Or is it put in a line with other text?

    You say it was working until recently, has anything been introduced in that time? A plugin that does code validation for example?

    As usual, it is best to disable all plugins and revert to the stock twentyten or twentyeleven theme if you are troubleshooting. If you want to go that route, there is a build-in shortcode you can use to test:

    Okay, I’ve now checked if there shortcode was text representing with tags around it, but no it isnt. I’ve actually not tried any other plugins recently, so I dont think that would be the problem… – The only thing I did before it failed was that I activated the plugin FS Contact Form after an update, may caused the fail? – But Ill try: As usual, it is best to disable all plugins and revert to the stock twentyten or twentyeleven theme if you are troubleshooting.
