WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I encounter this weird problem.. I'm trying to create a simple & easy website for a client. He wants to embed video's into the page.

I use different customfields assigned to specific elements in the website. I hide the standard wordpress wysiwyg editor and registred a new one to put it in line with other customfields.

Here is the problem, when i use the shortcode icons made by plugins and i post them in the registered wysiwyg editor and i save the page, it doesn't work, it only shows the short-code.

Example short-code:

[pro-player width='600' height='600' type='video']http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-nOjUXGCREs[/pro-player]

But when i use the short-code in the original wordpress wysiwyg editor it does execute it properly.

Ofcourse when i call the plugins short-code throughout a .PHP file it definitely works.. But i want to keep it easy & simple for the client to understand, so an generated icon would be my best bet.

Why does he custommade wysiwyg editor execute short-codes as text ?

I hope someone can help me with this problem.

You're aware of oembed? Simply paste a youtube URL on its own line, making sure it isnt turned into a hyperlink, and itll be replaced with a full youtube embed on the frontend. Apply CSS styling to the embed so it fits correctly –  Tom J Nowell May 12 '13 at 0:20
    
Thanks for the response, strangely It doesn't work on a custom made wysiwyg editor... I tried it on the standard wordpress editor and it works.... –  Laurens May 12 '13 at 1:01

Yessss, I fixed the problem, i needed to apply a filter into the get_post_meta to make it work.

<?php  echo apply_filters( 'the_content', get_post_meta($post->ID, '_wenc_content_inhoud', true)); ?>

Thanks anyway!
