Function Reference/do shortcode


<?php echo do_shortcode( $content ) ?>


(string) (required) Content to search for shortcodes

Default: None

Return Values

Content with shortcodes replaced by the output from the shortcode’s handler(s).


add_filter('the_content', 'do_shortcode', 11); // From shortcodes.php
// Use shortcode in a PHP file (outside the post editor).
echo do_shortcode('');
// 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');


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.
