This video will show you how to use the Beaver Builder shortcodes which were introduced in version 1.7 of the Beaver Builder plugin.

It may help inspire you on how you can add this new functionality to your website designs using Beaver Builder.

As noted in the video, WordPress does not support shortcodes in text widgets out of the box. Some plugins provide this, such as the popular Contact Form 7 plugin as well as some themes, notably Dynamik Website Builder.

If the theme you are using does not provide this functionality, you can add the following code to the end of your theme’s functions.php file:

add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');

However,  the correct way is to create a ‘child’ theme and then add it there. There are many tutorials available (Google search) to show you how to create a ‘child’ theme for WordPress.
