    The syntax is like this: [widget id="meta-1" before_title="<h3>" after_title="</h3>"]
    This is working for me. What seems to be the problem?

    If you look at the word “test” and the links below it, it’s not acting as it should.

    This is what I have in the init.php file:

    ‘before_widget’ => ‘<ul class=”top-sub-menu”>’,
    ‘after_widget’ => ”,
    ‘before_title’ => ‘<h3>’,
    ‘after_title’ => ‘</h3>’

    None of this is taking.

    Oh, you enter it in the actual code, my bad. Next time can you make sure to point this out in examples on your plugin?

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    My code on the page looks like this:

    [widget id=”recent-posts-2″ before_title=”<h3>” after_title=”</h3>”]

    This put an actual <h3> before the title and a </h3> after the title on the page as if they were part of the title. Like I called the widget “<h3>title</h3>?

    What am I doing wrong?

    Nothing, that’s how it’s supposed to work. How should it be?
    If you don’t want the before_title and after_title parameters just set them to nothing:
    [widget id="recent-posts-2" before_title="" after_title=""]
    So now nothing will wrap the widget title.
    Let me know if you need any help.

    Instead of using the <h3></h3> tags to control the title font and size it actually puts <h3> and </h3> as part of the title.

    like this

    This is what my code looks like on the page:
    [widget id="archives-2" before_title="<h3>" after_title="</h3>"]

    Have you entered the shortcode in Visual mode in editor? Because in visual mode the editor converts less-than and greater-than signs to their unicode equivalent so they show up as you typed them.
    Try that in Source mode and let me know if that helps. I’ll update the plugin with a fix to solve this.

    Yes I was entering the code in visual editor mode.

    It does seems to work when in html editor mode. It then makes the visual editor mode look really funky, but seems to work.
