Using RewardStyle in custom fields & widgets

Several of our themes use custom fields to output your Shop the Post widgets in certain areas. If you're using RewardStyle (also known as LikeToKnowIt), there are a couple additional steps you'll need to take to use RewardStyle widget inside the custom field:

1. Install the RewardStyle WordPress plugin

Here's where to find the plugin and how to upload it onto your website: CLICK HERE

2. Use HTML instead of a shortcode

By default, RewardStyle gives you a shortcode to display each widget on your site. RewardStyle shortcodes look like this: [show_shopthepost_widget id="12345678"]

Custom fields (which are what display Shop the Posts in your theme) do not support shortcodes. If you add a shortcode to a custom field, the shortcode will display instead of the widget.

To display a RewardStyle widget in a custom field, you'll need to grab the HTML for the widget instead of the shortcode. The HTML can be found in the "Other" tab in RewardStyle (rather than the WordPress tab you're probably used to).

This also applies to use RewardStyle widgets used in Custom HTML widgets. For those areas, you'll need to grab the HTML instead of the shortcode for your widget.
