I have created a custom post type which doesn't use
the_content() to display anything in the front-end, just using echo's.
The user enters data into a text-area field in the plugin admin back-end, the CPT does some data manipulation and everything is output through a template file using a shortcode.
How can I get short-codes to fire when a user enters them into a CPT text-area in the backend admin. I can't see any filters being used. Also since it's an admin area text input field, php snippets won't work.
Perhaps a better question is how to implement
the_loop properly in a custom post? My code currently;
<?php /* Template Name: Article */ ?> <article class="article-single"> <?php echo do_shortcode('[banner]'); ... loads of shortcodes to build up html... echo do_shortcode('[info]'); ?> </article>
