[Solved] Gallery doesn't work in Agentpress 2 slider widget

Problem: I am migrating a website to a new host with a new URL. The new site's slider widget in AP2  gallery only shows the shortcode text input into the text box (see http://jackielovesrealestate.com). However, the gallery works perfectly when the shortcode is input on a page or other area of the site...it doesn't work specifically in the text box Slider widget area.  I am running version on this site.
I've tried downgrading genesis, downgrading the gallery version to no avail. I'm currently running genesis 1.8.2.

It does work on the old site (http://simplynashuanh.com) and is set up the same way (using shortcode in the slider widget text box). This site runs genesis 1.8.0 and gallery version 1.1.1.

I am looking for a solution to getting the gallery running in the Slider widget on the new site.

    Found Success!
    I also posted this issue to Studiopress support forums and got this successful reply: "Shortcode does not ru nin text widgets by default. You need to add this to your functions file PHP code: add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');<code><span style="color: #000000"><span style="color: #007700"><br></span></span>

    Hi Terri,

    Thank you for your post and your follow-up.

    Yes, WordPress text widgets don't parse shortcodes automatically.
    You have to add this support with the code as mentioned.

    Or even better/easier, here is a plugin which will make it possible: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/parse-shortcodes/

    All the best,
