I’ve tried using this code inside the widget code Code: <?php echo do_shortcode (‘[slideshow]’) ?> . The problem is the shortcode is not executing, it is being outputted as text. Any idea what the problem is? Thanks May 21, 2012 at 8:00 pm #75575 DevinModerator I believe you would need to do something more along lines of this example: // In case there is opening and closing shortcode. echo do_shortcode('[iscorrect]'.$text_to_be_wrapped_in_shortcode.'[/iscorrect]'); From: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/do_shortcode So that the shortcode is opened and closed.
