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"]');
