The [types] shortcode is not parsed after updating the site to WordPress 4.2.3


I'm having the same problem


Same here




How can this happen! Im runnning 10+ critical websites on Toolset, they are all messed up.
So fix this fast!


Here is a quick & dirt workarround:

copy a shortcodes.php from a wp 4.2.2 version to /wp-includes/


The older version of shortcodes.php workd fine to me...


Just finished a project early last night and emailed the clients. After WordPress automatically updated to 4.2.3, everything is broken. Shortcodes aren't being parsed, so images, URLs and so on are broken.


Me too, I downgraded my wordpress to 4.2.2

The probleme is the shortcodes.php who break View plugin.


This is ridiculous!!


It appears that the problem is with the WordPress update, not ToolSet. For folks who are freaking out, hurling angry demands and abuse at OnTheGoSystems is completely uncalled for.


same problem here


However I'll change to ACF.
The Toolset guys should have noticed this when working with the preview version of 4.2.3 -
not matter which side is responsible for this mess.


swap in the old shortcodes.php works well. quick fix.

I uploaded it here:
