How to implement shortcode?

Recommended Posts

atwr

I've just started working with wordpress and I would like to know how to make use of shortcode. Here's the thingh. I have installed and activated plugin WPimageFlow2 as I want to show a rotating image gallery. The installation instruction tells me to just insert the shortcode [wp-imageflow2] anywher in the page or post. And that's where I get lost. Do they mean in the actual page file (the php document) or can I just place the code in a widget or on a page? If do, the code doesn't seem to work. Can anybody help me out? Thanks in advance. BTW I'm using PlatformPro 1.0.9

Make sure that the plugin is activated first. Then shortcode should go on the page/post editing box. (not in template files) e.g. the default "About" page. You can edit that and put the shortcode in there. (you may have to use the HTML instead of Visual editor)
