    Hi , I have just upgraded our test site to wp 4.7.1 and see the short code for the posterboard is not resolving in a text widget.

    it just shows as text: [event_board]

    It works fine on a seperate page.

    Any suggestions on how to fix this ?

    thx

    WordPress doesn’t render shortcodes in text widgets. So there must have been a plug-in or theme that provided that feature.

    That being so, its best that you first ascertain that that plug-in (or theme) is still active and functioning correctly. (Do any of the WordPress shortcodes work? Does [eo_calendar] work?

    If it is, double check the posterboard plugin is active. If so uninstall the posterboard plug-in and re-install it and activate it

    If it is still does not fix the issue, you may want to try deactivating other plug-ins. There was nothing in 4.7.1 that would cause this problem, so if there is a conflict that is preventing the shortcode from rendering it, it’s likely to be a third-party plugin.

    Add the following to a custom plugin or your theme’s functions.php file:

    // Enable shortcodes in text widgets
    add_filter('widget_text','do_shortcode');
    

    Now you can put shortcodes in a Text widget.
