I wrote a simpe PHP script and have been trying to return the results in WordPress shortcodes, but I can't seem to get it to work. Here is what I have:

CODE
function securetotal() {
    return $secure_total;
}
add_shortcode('secure', 'securetotal');


$secure_total is the predefined variable that I need to be displayed. I can display simple text instead of the variable, but the variable is not transferring any results. Am I missing something? Any ideas?

BTW, I did post this on the Wordpress forum, but didn't get any replies, so I'm hoping someone here can shed light on it. Help is much appreciated.

Okay, the problem was that the variable was not global.

I just had to make $secure_total global and that fixed the problem. Thanks!

Here's the code just in case anyone else has the same problem.

CODE

function securetotal() {
       global $secure_total;
       return $secure_total;
}
add_shortcode('secure', 'securetotal');
