  • With the new plugin repo, in my plugin’s page (see section “How to embed video and other contents”) I am experiencing a rendering problem due to an incorrect processing of the readme.txt file.

    In that FAQ there are some example of code with [embed] shortcodes escaped with backquotes. Unfortunately the shortcodes are rendered instead of being just displayed, and moreover all of the subsequent content of the page is messed up with a fixed-width font.

    In the old version of the repository, it has worked fine for years.

    That is indeed a problem. The reason it worked before is that the previous directory was bbPress 1.1 powered, not WordPress powered.

    You can escape built in WordPress shortcodes by using double brackets around the shortcode.

    Note that that double bracket trick won’t work here on the forums, we have a plugin that interprets double brackets to be a link to the codex. We’ll phase that out eventually. 🙂

    Hi Samuel,
    thanks for your reply. I’ve just noticed that this was indeed fixed recently, so that now built-in WordPress shortcodes are no longer processed in the readme.txt even without using double brackets. Can you confirm?
