How to use square brackets in WordPress

Posted by danblog on July 31, 2011 in How Tos & Tutorials |

wordpress-logoIf you have ever tried to use square brackets (e.g. [ and ]) in your posts it can be slightly frustrating when WordPress thinks that it’s a short code and tries to process it or simply remove it.

The solution to this is simple! All you need to do is add the HTML code for square brackets in the HTML editor or Source view of the post and insert “[” for the left bracket ([) and “]” for the right bracket (]).

So for example if you wanted to display [twitter] you would put [twitter]

Hope this helps!
