I was recently working on my new blog, and I came across a shortcode I could use to display some content on the blog, but the problem I faced was using the shortcode in my theme file since shortcodes are special tags that you can enter into a post that gets replaced with different content when actually viewing the post on the website.
I made my research found the php function code that could easily help you echo a shortcode in a WordPress PHP theme file and decided to share it with you.
The WordPress do_shortcode() function is all you need to work this out.
Simply add the shortcode in this format.
<?php echo do_shortcode( ‘your-shortcode‘ ); ?>
All you need do is replace the blue text your-shortcode with the exact shortcode text you want to use on your blog’s theme file.
Hurray! You’ve successfully displayed your wordpress shortcode in your wordpress theme file.
