Searches content for shortcodes and filters shortcodes through their hooks.
<?php echo do_shortcode( $content ) ?>
add_filter( 'the_content', 'do_shortcode', 11 ); // From shortcodes.php
// Use shortcode in a PHP file (outside the post editor). echo do_shortcode( '[gallery]' );
// In case there is opening and closing shortcode. echo do_shortcode( '[iscorrect]' . $text_to_be_wrapped_in_shortcode . '[/iscorrect]' );
// Use shortcodes in text widgets. add_filter( 'widget_text', 'do_shortcode' );
// Use shortcodes in form like Landing Page Template. echo do_shortcode( '[contact-form-7 id="91" title="quote"]' );
// Store the short code in a variable. $var = do_shortcode( '[gallery]' ); echo $var;
If there are no shortcode tags defined, then the content will be returned without any filtering. This might cause issues if a plugin is disabled as its shortcode will still show up in the post or content.
