Support » Plugin: Show/Hide Content at Set Time » Shortcode will not function within a Formidable View – but did before?

    Your plugin is perfect (and the only one like this that I can find)! I had it all working and then a few days later it did not and will not.

    It works as it should when used on a page. I had set it up to be part of a “View” created in Formidable Forms (just some HTML coupled with dome field content from a form that creates a “view shortcode” placed on a page. It handles shortcodes within the view fine and it worked perfectly with your shortcode – ubtil it didn’t. There was no change in the Formidable product or yours during the time it did and didn’t work. I reinstalled both plugins (yours and Formidable) to be sure. I created the simplest test but still when the view is on a page your shortcode returns the current time like 18:45:50 instead of executing the shortcode. The exact same code that is part of the view is what I also placed literally on the page and it works as expected.

    You can see the two results on this page: http://businessnaples.com/assoc/holiday-display-test/

    Here is what is happening in the two scenarios. For sure this is not an issue with your shortcode as it works on a plain page. Just thought you might have some idea what could be causing this (especially since it was working)

    Display using the Formidable View Shortcode

    [display-frm-data id=11455 filter=limited]

    When page is displayed this appears (the 18:45:50 is the current time when page is opened. The Christmas & New Year content comes from a field id – [1265]):

    Display using the Formidable View Shortcode
    18:45:50Christmas[/time-restrict-repeat]
    18:45:50New Year[/time-restrict-repeat]

    Display using the same shortcode as page content

    [time-restrict-repeat type=”annually” onmonth=”November” offmonth=”December” ondate=”22″ offdate=”10″][1265][/time-restrict-repeat]

    When page is displayed this appears Correctly functions – [1265] is the content field code:
    Display using the same shortcode as page content
    [1265]

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

    I’m afraid I don’t know. It’s especially baffling since it did work, but is no longer. My gut instinct based on what I’m seeing is that the Formidable View plugin isn’t processing shortcodes inside its own shortcodes, but I don’t know I’m afraid.
