Sharedaddy fails after apply_filters('the_content'..) (4 posts)

    I created some shortcodes: tabs, accordions, slideshow, pricing tables. They are quite elaborated and can contain text: paragraphs, other shortcodes, videos etc. I use an additional tinyMCE editor to add content to the slides, the tab panel etc.

    To print the content of the shortcode I have to pass it though:

    $the_content = apply_filters('the_content', $the_content);

    So I'm sure all the default filters (wp_autop, do_shortcode etc.) and the filters due to the themes or other plugins will be applied to the output.

    Unfortunately, I guess because of these lines on Sharedaddy module:

    // Don't allow flair to be added to the_content more than once (prevent infinite loops)
    	$done = false;
    	foreach ( $wp_current_filter as $filter ) {
    		if ( 'the_content' == $filter ) {
    			if ( $done )
    				return $text;
    				$done = true;

    each time a shortcode has used in a post, Sharedaddy doesn't display the sharing icons at the end of the post itself... is there a workaround to this or simply Sharedaddy is not compatible with apply_filters('the_content'....

    TIA, Manuel :-)

    Ok, at this moment I've used this workaround (it is an example, I work with a class etc.): http://pastebin.com/HCfBYcHM

    But I don't think it's the best way... any tip is welcome. Thanks

    Out of curiosity, why are you firing it multiple times? Are you firing the_content filter inside of a filter on the_content? I'm not quite sure what you're trying to accomplish here.

    I apply the filters of the content to the value of a metabox: the shortcodes are saved as meta boxes, I simply pass the shortcode in this way [shortcode tabs="2"]. This print the raw content of the metaboxes, so I use the filters. :-)

    Do you think is a wrong approach? It is useful to crete complicated slides, or table prices etc.
