Shortcodes Are Not Working on My Blog Page

I loaded in all the plugins you suggest and I copied the shortcode you have on the site and pasted it in the text side of the page I want it in and nothing happens.

Shortcodes work on ever other page except on a statically assigned blog page. Here is an example.
The shortcode or any content inside the WP Editor will never get displayed. This is because you are telling WordPress that this page needs to be used as a blog, and to display the code that resides in the template file of index.php. This file loops through each of your posts and displays them.

If you want your blog page to display blog posts using a shortcode instead of the template index.php file, simply command WordPress not to use your page as your ‘posts page’.
Once you do this, your blog page will display just like every other page.
