I am using option tree. In textarea, i place shortcode

[layerslider id="1"]

its not working, i also found same post replied by plugin author allow shortcodes in textarea in option tree

still no solution


Got the solution.

you can use shortcode e.g. [layerslider id="1"] in textarea/textbox and call it by the name to the textarea/textbox use in option tree function files


get_option_tree( 'textboxname');

It will do.

do_shortcode(get_option_tree( 'textboxname' ));

The code will get the value whatever it is form optiontree textbox and execute the shortcode manager on it. If that string contains any shortcode it will be repalced by the output.
