Shortcodes are the “power house” of WP Symposium Pro, and once you’ve gone through the quick start buttons (in admin dashboard, WPS Pro->Setup) you may want to start changing the layout of your pages (for example, the profile page).
Here are some options of how this can be achieved.
Option 1, putting HTML around them
When editing a WordPress page (your profile page, for example), switch to “Text” in the editor, and use HTML for layout, including the shortcodes wherever you want.
Option 2, using a WYSIWYG content editor
Option 3, using other plugins
Use WordPress plugins like Easy Columns, to layout out page, using the short codes where appropriate.
