No, that doesn't do it.
I've got a function, called by a shortcode, that takes the content of all pages with the tag "soon" and puts them on the News page. Part of the function runs like this:
$soon_text .= $soonlink . get_the_title().'</a></h3>';
$thiscontent = get_the_content();
$coded_content = do_shortcode( $thiscontent );
$soon_text .= $coded_content;
If there is a shortcode inside that page's content, "do_shortcode" processes it so it displays properly on the News page.
However, if I have a boilerplate on that page, it is *not* processed, and
[boilerplate plate = "foo"] is right there for all to see.
I need a way to nest the boilerplate within a *shortcode*, not just within another boilerplate.
