Shortcodes stop working after 3.4.1 upgrade
Whatever this is, it’s specific to your sites. Have you tried:
– deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).
– switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.
– resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.
– re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress.
All plugins were deactivated. Most plugins were completely removed from the server and then re-installed problem still occurring.
Sites were switched back to Twenty Eleven problem still occurring.
Plugin folder was reset problem still occurring
All files except the wp-content folder re-installed problem still occurring.
It’s not just my site. Take a look at all these conversations. Everyone is thinking the plugins are at fault but all these plugins fail after upgrading to 3.4.1
All of those issues are completely different. This particular issue is specific to your sites.
If it’s specific to my site then can you give me some scenarios why shortcodes might stop working. We’ve already gone through your recommended actions. I can’t be the only person on the planet to have ever had shortcodes stop working. What should I be looking for? How can I get shortcodes to work again?

You’re the only person running 3.4 that I’ve seen with this particular problem here. Have you tried a vanilla install on another server?
No plugins or themes installed – ie as it came out of the box following the install process.
In order to resolve this issue we had to role back the PHP upgrade from 5.3.14 back to 5.3.13. We also switched the PHP ini short_open_tag from off to on. I would appreciate it if WordPress would review the new PHP upgrade to see why there might have been this conflict.
I’m using PHP 5.3.14 on a couple of my sites without any problems.
Not that I recall but I’d be happy to try one for you. Are these embedded videos from (day) YouTube? Or self-hosted videos? If it’s the latter, what video player plugin are you using?
I would appreciate you doing that test. These are self hosted videos using mediaelement.js (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/media-element-html5-video-and-audio-player/) but once that failed I also tried Secure HTML5 Video Player (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/secure-html5-video-player/). I was getting a black box with a “Download File” link in it.
Have you tried http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/jw-player-plugin-for-wordpress/ It’s a little more recent than either of the other two.
The video was just to most obvious issue that was resolved by rolling back the PHP version. There were other minor shortcode issues throughout all of the sites. Do you have any issue when you install either one of my suggested plugins or the JW Player?
