    I must be missing something —

    Why won’t shortcodes work in widget areas?

    For instance, in Home Top I’m trying to do 3 colums, but


    [one_third]<h2>What </h2>[/one_third]
    [one_third]<h2> Partnters</h2>[/one_third]


    doesn’t work – it comes out exactly like you see it above, except the h2 tags are huge


    You need to firstly add support for shortcodes in widgets.

    Add this code at the end of your child themes functions.php file:

    add_filter( ‘widget_text’, ‘shortcode_unautop’);
    add_filter( ‘widget_text’, ‘do_shortcode’);
