    Hey Jamie,

    I’m using a testimonials plugin which generates short code to “put in the page”. so far with nae luck :(

    Is there something I should know about using shortcode (with Canvas)?
    is there a resource for using short code (best practice) you can point me at?

    If you go to, latest testimonials you will see one of the problems…the short code is being displayed (and also working, coz what is underneath is supposed to be there)???

    Hi Keith,

    I think this could be because you’re putting the shortcode in the visual editor and not the text editor (the two tabs to the top right of the WordPress editor).

    The shortcode needs to look something like this:
    [hms_testimonials template=”13″ order=”testimonial_date” direction=”ASC”]

    and make sure you paste it into the the ‘text’ editor.

    Let me know how you get on,
