Enable Shortcodes in other Shortcode Attributes (1 post)

    I'm looking for a way to use a shortcode as the attribute of another shortcode. I've already created a shortcode to display a user's display name (defaults to currently logged in user, or ID can be specified for specific user).

    EX: [display-name] shows currently logged in user's display name or [display-name id="1"] would show user 1's display name and so on.

    What I'm trying to do is enable the ID parameter to process shortcodes. It would go something like this...

    [display-name id="[shortcode]"]

    The embedded shortcode would output a number for the user ID parameter which would then be used in the [display-name] shortcode to show the corresponding user's display name. Is this possible?? Can someone please help me with this???

    Thanks in advance,
