I want to use a shortcode for a table in a category description. It's my understanding that WP does not support this. I searched google and found some codes that i needed to add to the functions.php. But it's not working for me. What should I do?

adding those codes into functions.php (tested in a child theme of Twenty Sixteen) seems to work:

add_filter( 'term_description', 'shortcode_unautop' );
add_filter( 'term_description', 'do_shortcode' );
remove_filter( 'pre_term_description', 'wp_filter_kses' );
