Pagelines Button Shortcode not working with WPTouch

Recommended Posts

cboq

I've done a bit of simplification of the mobile phone version of our website cboqyouth.ca via the WPTouch plugin.  I'm liking the results except that the Pagelines Button shortcodes (pl_button) don't seem to be coming through well on mobile phones.  On an iPhone 4S for example, instead of a clickable button, mobile phones display a string of pl_button code instead.  (e.g. http://cboqyouth.ca/empowerment/compassion/sixnations)  I'm guessing the WPTouch plugin doesn't recognize this shortcode and therefore displays this code as if it were text. Is there any way you'd recommend to remedy this problem?

Hi,

 

I'm not sure why this is happening, but I'm not seeing it on my Android.  This leads me to think that the issue is browser specific, though I don't think that in this case our Browser Specific CSS plugin is going to help.  It's more likely some setting that's prohibiting the shortcodes from rendering correctly.

 

Were it simply a CSS issue, then the buttons would render, but not properly. Since the code itself displays, most likely it's a coding issue, which tells me either a setting is not correct on your phone or in the OS itself due to WP Touch.

 

In fact, this might answer the issue:  http://mysitemyway.com/support/topic/wptouch-pro-shortcode-problems

 

It appears to be a WP Touch issue:  http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-wptouch-shortcodes-show-up
