Support » Plugin: Page Builder by SiteOrigin » Shortcodes from other plugins

  • Resolved Marcoevich


    Not really an issue at the moment, but more a question: Have you ever used shortcodes in your panels, and especially shortcodes from other plugins?

    I have now tried to put shortcodes from a slideshow widget and from advanced custom fields in your panels. I tried both text and content widgets, but I never get the desired output on the page. So do you have any experience with this? Any tips/tricks maybe?

    Thanks in advance!

    This is one solution to getting shortcodes working in the text widget.

    When I add the WYSIWYG widget (hopefully coming this month), I will be sure to make it process shortcodes.

    Works perfectly! Thanks Greg 😉

    Oh Greg, when you add the WYSIWYG editor, could you add a function for syntax highlighting to it? That would surely be helpful when editing html/css inside your widgets 🙂

    I will use the core WordPress WYSIWYG editor. This will allow other plugins to handle things like syntax highlighting.

    Ok m8. Thx for the heads up 😉

    Hi Greg, may I ask you for a status update? How far are you with implementing the WYSIWYG widget that can handle shortcodes properly?

    Thx m8!

    Hey Marcoevich

    The latest version of Page Builder is compatible with Black Studio’s TinyMCE widget, which is a full WYSIWYG editor with shortcode parsing.

    Update to the latest version of Page Builder, then in the Page Builder interface click the add widget button. At the bottom of the dialog, you’ll see a button “Recommended Plugins and Widgets”. From there, install Black Studio TinyMCE plugin.

    You’ll now have a TinyMCE widget that should make you smile 🙂
