What i did :

  1. I have created a new staff member and addd some descriptions with image/caption under it (wordpress standard fonction)
  2. I have created a page to show this member staff with this shortcode : [ESPRESSO_STAFF id="2"]

i see the image, and the text, but the “shortcode” for the image shows this in the text in production mode :
[caption id="attachment_161" align="alignright" width="199"] THE ACTUAL IMAGE [/caption]

OK I have raised a development ticket for this to get it fixed in a future update.

In the mean time, you can resolve this by a simple code edit but it does affect a core file, so please be aware that it will be over written on update and to backup your files and database as a precaution.

in event-espresso/includes/shortcodes.php look for the end of the ESPRESSO_STAFF shortcode function, approx line 637.

Where it says return $buffer; above that line add $buffer = apply_filters('the_content', $buffer);

screenshot of code

This will display the caption correctly.
