    Hi,
    I’m new to shortcodes and wordpress, hope you can help.

    I have created a page using recent post shortcode to put the most recent post at the top in full width, then a separator, then the rest of the recent posts below the separator in two columns with thumbnails. This is what I would like to have as my home page, but when I change the reading setting to use a static front page and select that page, all the shortcodes disappear.

    How can I make this custom page my front page and keep the shortcodes functioning?

    thanks,
    -mark

    Well, for some reason it has now begun working. I didnt change a thing, just assigned “Static Front Page” to the alternate page I had created, having done this many times before unsuccessfully, and it is now presenting properly. Front page now displaying my alternate page including the active shortcodes.

    Hope it sticks πŸ™‚

    thanks
