Howto: Using Shortcodes in Pods Templates

By default including a shortcode within a Pods shortcode (nesting it within the “pods” shortcode or building a shortcode within a Pods Template or Custom Template with Magic Tags) will not work. If you need this functionality to work, you need to include the following constant in your wp_config.php file:

define('PODS_SHORTCODE_ALLOW_SUB_SHORTCODES',true);

If you need to parse a shortcode within the Pods template, custom template or within your Pods shortcode, just add shortcodes=1 to the Pods shortcode.
