Upfront - Shortcodes for a different portfolio plugin

Trying to use Essential Grid plugin with Upfront. It uses shortcodes but I honestly have no clue how to insert shortcodes while working within the Upfront editor. I've tried to drag the html option and then place the shortcode in the CSS section, but that doesn't help. Any ideas?

    Hi there @David

    I hope you're well today!

    No, shortcodes will most certainly not work in the CSS editor, as only valid CSS can be added in there.

    Shortcodes can be added to Upfront elements, as well as posts, pages & custom post types, in the same way you add them to that content in the admin of your site: via the post editor.

    To add them while the Upfront is active, simply double-click in the content area of the page/post you want to enter the editing experience. Then paste in the shortcode & click Update or Publish.

    I hope this helps! And thanks for being a member :slight_smile:
