Why do shortcodes do nothing?

    @ocelot0526

    On this page http://codex.bbpress.org/shortcodes/ they say “To use any of the shortcodes simply insert the desired shortcode into any WordPress page.”

    So far I’ve tried these three

    [bbp-forum-index]
    [bbp-single-forum id=1]
    [bbp-topic-index]

    nothing happens except they show up as text. Why?

    Hi,

    A couple of reasons why the shortcodes won’t work.

    1. Make sure the bbpress plugin is installed an activated.
    2. The theme strips out the any use of shortcodes in the write panel.

    Have you tried using the shortcodes in the “Text” panel rather than the “Visual” box?
