    Can you provide a link so I can try to figure out what is going on?

    Yes, here is a link:

    http://www.devwp.mywebpixie.com/fr/partenaires/

    where, after completing the creation of a new sponsor successfully, I added <?php wp_sfw_render(); ?> in text mode to this new page called Partenaires.

    I don’t think php is going to render in the wysiwyg area, can you try adding the shortcode instead? It would be something like the following…

    [flipwall
    id=”image-name”
    title=”Sponsor Name”
    url=”http://whatever.com”
    linktext=”Instead of whatever.com”
    image=”url to image”
    text=”description if singleline”
    class=”optional tile class”
    target=”_blank”
    ]
    Description with HTML
    [/flipwall]

    AS I said I added the php in text mode. Is that WYSIWYG? I thought text mode was NOT WYSIWYG
    Oh well.

    I read the plugin page installation instructions 1. says to add
    <?php wp_sfw_render(); ?> where you want it to appear…

    What does where mean? not in a post/page?

    I’m confused. Is this the same plugin as the flipwall shortcode plugin?

    In any case I inserted the shortcode you suggested using TEXT view of editor. Just shows the code.
    Perhaps it’s the editor?

    In regards to my wondering, maybe it’s the editor, I am using Ultimate TinyMCE editor.

    I noticed in Visual mode there is button for WP flipwall that insert this shortcpode
    [wp_sfw_render]

    What is that about?

    [wp_sfw_render] is what should be inserted.

    The button appears only in Visual mode in my editor. So if you are entering stuff in TEXT mode it is not available. Kinda counter-intuitive.

    Am I missing something?

    I find no mention of this [wp_sfw_render] in the instructions on wordpress.org plugin page or in the readme?

    Anyway, it now works.

    Best regards.

    I’m sorry for the confusion. Within the editor, what I referred to in the wysiwyg, you have to use short-codes and you cannot use php code regardless of what mode you are in. This is true for everything in wordpress.

    The reference you are seeing to “<?php wp_sfw_render(); ?>” refers to placing that in the actual template file within the theme.

    To be honest, I never knew that the short-code with the same name was supported. I didn’t write this plugin and only provide support b/c the person who made it left the company. I’m doing what I can to support this community in the same way it supports me.

    Good luck with the rest of your project. From what I saw, the site looks good.

    Thank you.

    The shortcode you suggested [flipwall]…[/flipwall] does not work for this plugin It is in fact used by an alternate plugin, which I use and works right away because the developer actually put that information in his instructions.

    This plugin would cut down on support requets considerably if the proper installation and use information was made available on the plugin site or readme file.

    In particular, if I had had acces to that information, I would not have had to put a negative review on it and move to a different plugin.

    I would suggest modifying the instructions to read something like this:

    To use the plugin in templates, insert the following code where you want it to appear: <?php wp_sfw_render(); ?>.
    To use the plugin on a post, page or widget, insert the following shortcode: [wp_sfw_render]

    Thanks. I do this support on my own time and am not afforded time or resources from my company to make this changes. There are a lot of things that I would like to do with this and our other plugins, but just don’t have the capacity.

    I’m sorry you had trouble with this, but this is a plugin that hasn’t been updated in over a year and hasn’t really seen wide adoption. I’d suggest looking at those two variables before you select plugins in the future. I’ve initially not updated this plugin b/c I don’t have time to provide real support and don’t want to give that impression.

    Again, sorry for the trouble you encountered and I wish you the best of luck with your site.

    Okay. Good information to know.

    When it didn’t work, after reporting it here, I did adopt the flipwall shortcode plugin on the working site.

    Thanks for your help.
