The dropdown on our Members page (https://scopevc.com/scope-members/) is not dropping down, though “Select Category” is visible.

How can I get it to work on the Members page?

[connections]. You did not paste the HTML in the post did you? You can not do that as it will not work.02/13/2019 at 1:33 pm #484556Joel MorrisGuest
How would you like me to submit the HTML that was used? How can I attach something to send to you?02/13/2019 at 1:52 pm #484557
I’m sorry, but you should not use the HTML generated by the shortcode on it is own … you should use the actual shortcode itself. Using the generated HTML makes it “static in the page, it will not, as an example, show newly added categories. Which is pretty much the reason you do not see categories on that page, the category options are completely missing.
Edit the page in the admin, remove the HTML, and use the

Hi Steven – Somehow the source code migrated to text of the page. I replaced it with the short code and all is well. Not sure how this happened. I thank you for your help.02/14/2019 at 8:49 am #484624
