[resolved] shortcodes not working in event editor (3 posts)

    Thanks for the great plugin, it's exactly what my clients wanted. I would like to use a few shortcodes (from the plugin shortcode ultimate) in the event listings. The shortcode icon shows in the WYSIWYG editor, but does not function, and entering shortcodes in HTML doesn't work either. I'm having no luck in figuring out where the conflict is. The shortcode generator works on the rest of the site, ie post/pages/products. Also, is it possible to add social share buttons to events?

    Thanks so much.

    I have done a short test and I can see the problem with the shortcode icon. But when I enter the shortcode manually it is working.
    I think the problem with the shortcode icon is that the required javascript isn't included, but I must have a closer look.

    Social share buttons are not planned, because I don't like to use social networks.

    Thank you,
    Which shortcodes were you able to enter manually? I tried to enter some shortcodes manually, and it did not work with either of the shortcode plugins I tested.

    Here are the two plugins I tested. I tried both using the MCE icons and manually.


    I also tried to add social sharing with a shortcode which works on the rest of the site pages http://wordpress.org/plugins/social-media-feather/
    it did not work.

    Any help is appreciated, I want to stick with your plugin because of my clients preference for a list vs. calendar, and the ease of use for them moving forward.
