If I create a new page and include this shortcode, the Civi User Dashboard displays correctly.

[civicrm component="user-dashboard"]

If I create a new page but nest the same short code inside of an outer shortcode, several JS files do not get loaded. A section titled "<!-- CiviCRM html header -->" (present in non-nested output) does not output.

[civicrm component="user-dashboard"]

"get_shortcode_regex" doesn't seem to work when nesting CiviCRM shortcodes. I found 2 hacky workarounds.

  • Can you elaborate on your hacky workarounds ?

I ended up using page tags to tell a php script which pages need to force CiviCRM resources to load.

if ( function_exists('has_tag') && function_exists('get_the_id') && has_tag('logged-in-no-cache', get_the_id()) ) {
    add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', array( civi_wp(), 'front_end_page_load' ), 100 );

This goes in functions.php.

  • @samuelsov here's what I've come up with.
