    Hello, I need to embed shortcode for two different plugins in one page. One is an FAQ plugin I’d like for the left side of the page, the other is a document display plugin for the right side. Unfortunately neither of these plugins work as widgets (as far as I know), so I assume I would need to have two separate sections on the page, with one for each shortcode. With every Celestial Reloaded page template that I try for this, the FAQ appears above the document display plugin, not to the left of it. Any idea how I could make the shortcodes display in different sections from left to right? Is there a way to modify an existing template to accomplish this? Thanks for your help.

    If I understand this correctly, you have 2 plugins, one is to go in a sidebar column (left I am guessing?) and the other is for the main content part?

    What are the plugins you are using? Also, do these plugins provide documentation on how to insert these into your website (or page)? I would recommend checking that out first.

    Thanks. The plugins are WP Awesome FAQ and Document Gallery (http://wordpress.org/plugins/document-gallery/installation). I wasn’t able to find anything in the documentation about how to use the plugins without using shortcode, which is really the problem.

    So yes, I need the FAQ to be on the left side of the page, and the Document Gallery on the right. But since they both require shortcode (which requires a content area, as opposed to a widget, which I could put in a widget area), it seems that I would need two separate content areas, and put one shortcode in each, in order to do that. Am I off base with this assumption? And/or is it possible to have separate content areas which support two different plugin shortcodes on one page? I’m just thinking I’ve never seen a page with more than one content editor, so not sure about this.

    If they use shortcode, then you would add the shortcode to a text widget for the sidebar column and then the shortcode for the content part in the page editor…or however, you plan to set this up as I’m not sure really how these plugins work and never seen them function. The document gallery one has a shortcode as [dg] which goes in your page. Their installation page has a ton of info, so best half a coffee while you go through it.

    I did read that you mentioned about having two content areas…not really or easily possible, but the closest you can get is using inline columns. http://demo.styledthemes.com/celestial-reloaded/content-columns/

    Ok, good idea using the text widget. That should take care of it. Thanks.
