Shortcode multiplies when used

I created and added a shortcode [paidmedia] to protect a video I want users to sign up to view. When I place it in, it goes crazy. Seems to affect all the shortcodes on the site. I’m using Supermassive from Themeforest. See attached screenshot. Thanks!

    Hi billstinnett,

    I haven’t seen that happen before myself. Is that shortcode one you specified in Membership > Edit Options? And does it do that regardless of what content you have in there?

    As a way to rule out a theme conflict, would it be possible for you to switch to Twenty Ten for a moment to see if the shortcode content still doubles up like that?

    Do you have short codes protected by default in the options? Have you enabled access to all the other short codes if that is the case? Alternatively if you only want that shortcode protected, then leave them unprotected by default and just set your stranger level to protect that one shortcode.
