    Hi Dans,

    The SiteOrigin Tabs isn’t able to display shortcodes in the base widget. To be able to use shortcodes you’ll need to upgrade to SiteOrigin Premium which includes an upgrade for the tabs widget which allows for shortcodes and even widgets to be added to tabs. For more information on the SiteOrign Premium Tabs addon, please click here.

    Kind regards,

    Ok! In a few minutes i have install Dislpay Posts plugin and it works!
    With SO Premium in Tabs can i use pagebuilder in content area to make fields with all widgets in WP? Now(without premium) it only text editor.

    Hi Dans

    Thanks for the update. We’re glad to hear you’re making progress.

    With the Tabs addon activated you’ll have the option to select Layout Builder or Text. Layout Builder provides a mini-instance of Page Builder where you can insert rows, columns, and widgets.

    Here is what to expect https://imgur.com/a/XlE8DBa.
