I am needing to pull shortcodes into the layer section in the slide I am working on. In the HTML area I cut and paste the shortcode from Events Calendar Pro (i want to call the latest event in the slider area on the homepage. But the shortcode is simply printed on the slider.
Can the slider handle shortcodes? If so how?
Yes, LayerSlider is shortcode aware. You will need to enter the shortcode to the HTML layer content tab and the corresponding content will be displayed on your front-end. Please note that shortcodes usually won't display in the preview area only on your live site.
If you need further assistance please show us your site or a test page where we can check on this.
Yes. that is what i am doing and its simply outputting the shortcode. *see images
The shortcode that is generated by the calender plugin might not be valid. Please show us your site or a test page where we can check on this.
