shortcodes not working on sidebars

  • Hello, shortcodes works well when I put them on the pages, but when Im trying to put them on the sidebars, its not working.

    Heres the example:

    shortcode: [bbp-forum-index] is on the page and on the sidebar, but working only on the page.

    I tried this on many templates, and its always the same.

    ps: I also have another site, and the whole bbp shortcodes works there very well, even on sidebars, I have no idea what is the reason.

    Shortcodes don’t naturally work in sidebars. :) Possible your theme has them enabled?



    Also, why attempt to use the shortcode in the sidebar when it would be much better to just use the forum list widget?

    Yes, I found one theme where everything works fine. (short codes can be placed in sidebar by pulling there text bar and shortcode on it)

    How to make it work on other themes?


    How to make new widgets for bbpress plugin? There is default login, list of topics etc, but I need let’s say Tag Cloud on the sidebar.
