    Hi there, everyone!
    Trying to embed a Gravity Form on a category page within the intro. text area. The standard shortcode didn’t work for me, so now I’m curious what I should try. Any thoughts?

    The page is located at:

    It’s a blog for a local cosmetic surgeon. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance! :)




    Try this. Not sure it will work but worth a try.

    add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');

    Thanks so much for the suggestion, Brad! Unfortunately, that didn’t do the trick. Piggybacking off your idea…I tried replacing “widget_text” with “term_description”, and that, too, didn’t give me anything usable.

    Any other ideas? Thanks again!



    Justin, were you ever successful in figuring this out? I’m trying to find the answer myself.
