Shortcode works in post, widgets, but not in page content

Hi there,

I have tried various contact form and gallery plugins, their short code don’t work in the page content but it works in a post or in the sidebar widgets.

I paste the short code in the page [wd_contact_form id=”10″] and that is what display in the browser too.

What do I miss here?

Hi @chrisfourie,

I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

I have tested it on my test site using and it’s working fine for me using latest version of Unite theme and the shortcode provided by following plugin as displayed in the attached screenshot.

Have you made any changes in the theme files or using child theme?

Please make sure you are adding the shortcode in the text mode of page content editor.

Best Regards,


Thank you for the reply.

No I haven’t changed anything on the theme. I’m using Unite Version: 2.0.2.

I added the shortcode in the text mode of the page.

The other plugins I use is: (May this have an effect?)

BulletProof Security Version .54.1
Contact Form Maker Version 1.8.37
CPT Bootstrap Carousel Version 1.9.1
WooCommerce Version 2.6.4
WooCommerce Helper Version 1.7.1
WooCommerce PayFast Gateway Version 1.4.0

trust to hear from you shortly.

regards Chris

Yes this can be due to plugin conflict on your site so please try temporary deactivating all plugins and see whether everything works fine and then enable the plugins one by one to see which plugin is conflicting if any.
