    I’ve used vslider for many of my slides. I’d like the shortcode to work in the category description.

    For instance I have categories; city1, city2 etc.

    I’d like to have the shortcode in city1 be a slider for that city, and a different shortcode that pulls a different slider for that city.

    Unfortunately I can’t seem to make shortcodes work inside the category descruption.

    I didn’t try but I think you need to add this to your _functions.php

    add_filter( 'term_description', 'shortcode_unautop');
    add_filter( 'term_description', 'do_shortcode' );

    Thanks Jean_Francois. I did try that and I just get a blank screen.
