    Hi,

    Ok, I’ll see if I can replicate the error.

    But I would also suggest you try another approach.  I think a little code in the theme file would work better than trying to embed shortcodes into the category descriptions.

    For example: you could indicate that a category needs a map by using “*” as the first character in the category name.  In the theme file if you see an “*” in the name then output the map for that category using do_shortcode().

    This would also help to determine if there’s a general issue or if it was just a problem when embedding shortcodes in the descriptions.
