ISSUE: rewardStyle widgets are only showing the shortcodes

Some users may experience a bug in the rewardStyle WordPress plugin in which when the plugin is updated, it will sometimes deactivate. This has nothing to do with EmPress themes or their compatibility with the rS WordPress widget!

If your blog posts, Shop the Post plugin or Boutiques plugin are only displaying rewardStyle shortcodes, we recommend going to Plugins and ensuring your rewardStyle widget is set to Activate. Typically, if you have recently updated your rS Widget plugin, this is the culprit! Re-activating the widget should solve the issue completely.

If your widget is activated and you are still only seeing shortcodes, email us at, and we can assist you with troubleshooting further.
