Support » Plugin: Genesis Featured Widget Amplified » Post Info places " from shortcode

  • Hey Nick

    Great Plugin by the way!!

    Having an Issue with the post info shortcodes.

    This is what I have placed in the post info section [post_categories sep=”, ” before=””]

    what shows up on the site is : , “”PROJECTS, “”RENOVATION

    I’m trying to remove the filed under section so have left the before=”” blank.

    I’ve used a html blank space call ( ) without the “” which leaves the blank space but if I have 2 lines of categories there is an indent on the first line which doesn’t look to good.

    Any ideas

  • I just ran into the same issue with the widget messing up when there are quotes in the shortcode. It really jacks up dates when you try to add a custom format with quotes around it.

    Comparing it to the featured widgets that come with Genesis I see the problem is an extra esc_html in the do_shortcode function with this plugin.

    In the plugin folder, if you open widget.php you can make 2 edits to fix your problem. The first is in line 1122. Change this:
    printf( '<p class="byline post-info">%s</p>', do_shortcode( esc_html( $instance['post_info'] ) ) );
    to this instead:
    printf( '<p class="byline post-info">%s</p>', do_shortcode( $instance['post_info'] ) );

    Then in line 1159 change this:
    printf( '<p class="post-meta">%s</p>', do_shortcode( esc_html( $instance['post_meta'] ) ) );
    to this instead:
    printf( '<p class="post-meta">%s</p>', do_shortcode( $instance['post_meta'] ) );

    Hopefully Nick will see this and incorporate it into his plugin so it will start handling the shortcodes properly.

    Thanks man

    I managed to get a work around with my client, but I’ll use it on the next projects for sures.

    Thanks for the fix
