Support » Plugin: jQuery T(-) Countdown Widget » Shortcode shows, not timer

  • Resolved Handyann


    I’ve just installed and activated T(-) and need to apply it as a shortcode with the homepage section 1 bit of the Canuck theme I’m using (I inherited the admin for the site, so didn’t create it myself.) The part I need to replace with the timer is where it says ‘Happening here’.

    I’ve put the shortcode together and it works fine when applied to a normal test page, but if I add it to the HTML box on the homepage section, it just shows up as code on the front end.

    The shortcode I’m adding is: [tminus t= “23-05-2019 10:01:01″ id=”Boogie” omitweeks=”true” jsplacement=”inline” style=”c-3po”]Let’s BOOGIE!![/tminus]

    Can anyone tell me where I’m going wrong please?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    It looks like the HTML box on your homepage section is not processing shortcodes.
    this might be an option within the theme options, or maybe this homepage section offers different blocks that can be used?

    Thank you for your fast reply and you hit the nail right on the head!

    There is indeed a shortcode block available in this section, but it’s accessed via a drop-down which doesn’t make it clear that it’s the way to go to find it.

    I’ve got the timer working perfectly now.
