If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
Is it possible to use the shortcode generator which is available in article content editor in a widget?
You can enable debugging mode to see shortcodes you have created in pages using Advanced Layout Builder – http://www.kriesi.at/documentation/enfold/ (Purchase code hidden if logged out) /
You can switch to Default Editor and click on Magic Wand to see full list of shortcodes http://i.imgur.com/n4KXkdm.jpg
then you can create any of them and copy/paste shortcode into any other content element or into text widget.
Yes, I know I can build the shortcodes in add new article view for example and then copy paste to a text widget, but that wasn’t what I’m after…
What I’d like to know is that is there some widget what uses the wysiwyg article editor for wordpress? and if there is such widget, will the Enfold “Insert Theme Shortcode” button come there automatically?
And if not, I’d think it would be very usefull for Kriesi to create a wysiwyg widget what would simply be a text widget with the same editor as in create/edit article view.
With this addon it’s kind of possible: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wysiwyg-widgets/
I would prefer to have the editor in the widgets area itself, but I guess it’s better to manage the widgets like that.
Currently it is not possible. But please request such feature here – http://www.kriesi.at/support/enfold-feature-requests/ :)
