Widgetized Front Page


#1

Hello Vlad,

I’m trying to embed a PDF document onto the front page of the Intro theme using the DirtySuds embed PDF plugin. I added the add_filter(‘widget_text’, ‘do_shortcode’); to the functions.php file, then tried putting the shortcode into a text widget on the front page, but I still am not getting anything. Any ideas? Thanks,

cs

Hey,

Sorry, I don’t know how that plugin works, perhaps it only works on single posts. This should be asked on the plugin’s forum.

Ok will do, but theoretically there’s nothing within the theme itself that should prevent me from using shortcodes within the text editor?
