Some WordPress themes users experience the following issue: when placing shortcodes in Text widgets, WordPress automatically adds paragraphs for the text, which in some situations may cause the shortcode to display incorrectly. These additional "unnecessary" paragraphs may result in incorrect widget styling.

The best way to solve this problem is to use a Custom HTML widget instead of a Text widget. For the Custom HTML widget, paragraphs are not added and the shortcodes will be displayed 100% correctly.
