My post from yesterday is gone. The problem - square brackets don't work in text widgets. It is not a plugin problem - tried on a new blog with NO plugins. Not specific to anything else that I can see - tried gallery as well as merge codes in a plugin - different site. Have tried with different themes - free and premium. Tried with wp ver 2.7 adn 2.8.
Is this feature gone from wordpress???
Hope this post is not removed. This is a real problem and I've seen several others who asked similar questions with no answer.
