You cant use wordpress.com only shortcodes on your own hosted version of WordPress. This plugin i think adds that shortcode for you

WordPress Version: 3.8.1

Pagelines Framework Version: 2.4.4

 

I wish to have a dynamic "Child-Pages" list on my parent page and found the following shortcode @ WordPress.com support - I pasted the following in the Text Editor of the Page where I want the child pages list:

 

[child-pages sort_column='post_tile' sort_order='ASC']

 

But it only shows up as if I added it to the Visual Editor.

 

I have parent/child pages set up.

 

I'm not confident in messing around in the .php file and have been able to create site look with minimum additions to style Sheet, so am using the Custom Code admin tool instead of a child theme. 

 

I have read the following Documentation:

And this forum question:

Please Advise if the shortcodes list at Wordpress.com (not .org) is not supported on Pagelines or self-hosted sites.

 

If it should work, here's the link to the page that I'm trying to accomplish this on, for your persual: link removed

 

I've always been able to find the answer to any of my questions here, so this is my first post and I hope I provided all the information you need.

 

Thank you for your time/assistance.
