    Hi. I need to display dynamic content stored in custom fields from a specific post on another page of my site. (I’m using the Advanced Custom Fields plug-in.) In Enfold, I’m using a Code Block element along with shortcodes to keep things simple.

    The custom field content contains fully qualified URLs. Ideally, I would like to display these links using a Button Row element, but I’m having problem when nesting shortcodes.

    In the Code Block, using an ACF shortcode within plain HTML works fine:

    <h3>Current Show Daily Forms</h3>
    <li><a href= '[acf field="release_form" post_id="530"]'  target='_blank'>Show Release Form</a></li>

    But, when I try to nest this shortcode within your Button Row shortcode, it breaks:

    [av_buttonrow alignment='left' button_spacing='5' button_spacing_unit='px' av_uid='av-jo6idxj2' custom_class='chs-button-row' admin_preview_bg='']
    [av_buttonrow_item label='Release Form' link='manually,[acf field="release_form" post_id="530"]' link_target='_blank' size='medium' label_display='' icon_select='yes' icon='4' font='entypo-fontello' custom_bg='' custom_font='#ffffff' av_uid='av-1fbifpm' icon_hover='']

    Anything I am missing, or is this just unsupported? Thank you in advance.



    Hey Gary,

    Nesting shortcodes is not possible by default, maybe this will help you out though?

    Best regards,


    Thank you Rikard, that information was quite helpful.

    All the best,
