I had a text widget with [upcoming_list days=14 show_title='FALSE'] that worked just fine until very recently. Now all it shows is [upcoming_list days=14 show_title='FALSE']. Any suggestions? The directory seems to work just fine.
The birthdays do display fine if the shortcode is added to a page. Why did the text widget stop working?
This is unlikely related to Connections. By default the text widgets do not support shortcodes. Usually the theme or a plugin will add a filter which enables the processing of shortcodes. Connections never added this filter, so something else did. Have you updated any other plugins, removed a plugin, updated the theme or changed themes?
You can manually re-add this filter by adding the following to the theme’s
add_filter( 'widget_text', 'do_shortcode' );
I hope this helps!
If you have a moment, I would truly appreciate a review as they really do make a difference. Many thanks in advance!
