    Is it possible to use [bgmp-map] shortcode in category description?

    It throws error:

    Basic Google Maps Placemarks error: JavaScript and/or CSS files aren't loaded. If you're using do_shortcode() you need to add a filter to your theme first. See the FAQ for details.

    Hi Ian, I really tried, but I'm not sure, what exactly from FAQ, Installation or Other notes should help me :( I might be blind or stupid :)

    I'm not using do_shortcode, simply [bgmp-map]...

    Just use this instead, it'll enqueue the scripts on every page:

    add_filter( 'bgmp_map-shortcode-called', '__return_true' );

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately it works only with do_shortcode("[bgmp-map ...]") in template code, but not with shortcode [bgmp-map ...] in category description.

    At least it doesn't write this error anymore:
    Basic Google Maps Placemarks error: JavaScript and/or CSS files aren't loaded. If you're using do_shortcode() you need to add a filter to your theme first. See the FAQ for details.

    But map is not shown anyway. BGMP CSS file is loaded correctly, but in page source there is no BGMP JS code.

    Any ideas? TY!

    Does it just display "[bgmp-map]" instead of showing that map? If that's the case, then that would probably indicate that WordPress doesn't parse the category description for shortcodes by default. There are probably solutions for that if you search around, but it's a generic WordPress question, rather than something specific to this plugin.

    no, unfortunatelly it doesn't display anything - no error, no "[bgmp-map]" etc :(
