membership signup not showing in sidebar widget?

I am trying to setup the skeleton of a site now with several of your tools and the membership plugin is a key piece.

I've gone through your pdf document & setup the membership plugin. Your documentation is great, but I think I am missing a fundamental piece. In Appearance > Widgets, I moved both Membership widgets (Membership Level Text & Membership Subscription Text) into my sidebar, but I don't see an actual "signup" button / link show up anywhere in that area of the sidebar.

What am I missing? Is there a piece of code I need to include for this to show? Sorry in advance if it's a painfully obvious question.

    Hello there @clarese and welcome to the WPMU-DEV Community!

    Is there a piece of code I need to include for this to show?

    You can add the following in your theme's functions.php file:

    add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');

    This will allow you to put shortcodes in text widgets and you'll be able to display the form there. :slight_smile:

    I hope that helps!

    I'm marking this issue as resolved.
    If however the above solution doesn't work for you or you need any further instructions/clarifications on this, don't hesitate to reopen it and post an update on your current status.
