Hi guys/gals

Really novice to this but trying my best.

All I want to do is capitalise the return of the function to then be replaced in the wordpress shortcode.
What am I missing here!

CODE

// Page Title Shortcode - page_title
function page_title_sc( ){
    return get_the_title();
}
$titleupper = strtoupper('page_title_sc');
add_shortcode( 'page_title', $titleupper );

You are passing a string instead of the function name, like this:
CODE
$titleupper = strtoupper(page_title_sc());

Hi!

Alas I'm not familiar with Wordpress, also I don't know from where you get the string(s) to capitalize from in the first place.

return get_the_title();

Where is the above function defined?

QUOTE
add_shortcode( 'page_title', $titleupper );

I suppose the above calls a WP function, but I don't know what arguments that function expects.
