How To Use WordPress Shortcodes Anywhere In Your Theme

I was editing the StereoType Records website and wanted to call a WordPress shortcode for a plugin from directly in the theme  – useful if you want to add things in places they weren’t to go, like a Flickr Gallery in a pop up or a music player in your header. Whatever you need to call from a shortcode, it’s really easy to accomplish with just one line of code:

echo do_shortcode('[myshortcode]');

Now you can pop your favourite shortcodes anywhere you like. I used it to call the Flickr Gallery shortcode on a custom page template here:
