<?php echo do_shortcode('[mingleforum]'); ?>

inserts the mingle forum into my content!

is it possible to use add_filter() on that?

  • To filter what? What are you trying to achieve?

  • This plugin uses a lot of weird and bad inline styles like <div style="padding:10px" etc. I want to get rid of that on the serverside. I just wonder if that's possible! Apr 3, 2011 at 14:47

You can change your code to this:

$shortcode = do_shortcode('[mingleforum]');
echo apply_filters('my_new_filter',$shortcode);

and then you can interact with that filter


function my_new_filter_callback($shortcode){
    //to stuff here
    return $shortcode;

As of 4.7 two filters pre_do_shortcode_tag and do_shortcode_tag have been added which you can use.
