Shortcode outside Simple Page


I recently installed the ShortcodeCarousel plugin and I have managed to change its style and play with it a little but I'm still restricted to having it inside a simple page.

I would like to place it outside but I have little php knlowledge and I don't know how to do it.

What I really need to know is if this is possible and how can I acheive it.

I would really appreciate any help.

When you say "outside" do you mean on an item page or an exhibit page or something else?

This sounds like it calls for a small modification to the theme's file for where you want to output the shortcode result.

Something like this in your theme's views will produce the shortcode. More info is in this tutorial on shortcodes.

echo $this->shortcodes($text);

where $text contains the output including shortcodes you want.

Or, more directly,

echo $this->shortcodes('[my_shortcode]');

Depending on the pages where you want the shortcodes to appear, you might want to consult the tutorial on modifying themes.

Thank you!
