    I created a table with 3 images.  The 3 images show fine on my website, however through the VS plugin it appears [table id=13 /]  Why?

    Hi,

    This is happening because [table] is a shortcode in WordPress, and shortcodes cannot be used in syndicated posts.

    Shortcodes cannot be used because the shortcode connects to (usually) a plugin that

    1. Is installed in your WordPress, but probably not in The Soup, and definitely not in Facebook etc
    2. The shortcode uses an id=13. This ID was created on your website but is not known by the Soup or wider internet

    Now I will admit Tables are an absolute pain in HTML, I would probably recommend instead a 3 column layout using Elementor for the photos.

    Thanks Francis for the explanation.  Makes perfect sense.
