I’m using the Magazine Pro theme and trying to use shortcodes in the Home-Top widget. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to work—all I see is the actual shortcode when I publish the page. I’ve tried numerous shortcodes from different plugins and nothing works.
Does anyone have any knowledge or advice about this issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Widgets are outside of the loop, meaning shortcodes won’t execute there. This article has two ways to get around that: http://thomasgriffinmedia.com/blog/2010/12/how-to-execute-wordpress-shortcode-in-widgets-and-template-files/. For the second you would need to enable php in widgets first.
