Support » Plugin: Advanced Ads – Ad Manager & AdSense » Shortcode error

  • Resolved jesa29


    I’m trying to add some blocks via shortcodes.

    First, I’ve added to category description (all is OK):

    add_filter( 'term_description', 'filter_function_name_386', 10, 4 );
    function filter_function_name_386( $value, $term_id, $taxonomy, $context ){
    	// filter...
    	return $value .= do_shortcode( '[the_ad id="1681"]' ); 

    After that I tried to do the same for tags, but it fails:

    add_filter( 'post_tag_description', 'filter_function_name_385', 10, 4 );
    function filter_function_name_385( $value){
    	// filter...
            //shortcode returns an empty string here
    	$aaa = do_shortcode( '[the_ad id="1681"]');
    	return $value. $aaa . 'ttt';

    So do_shortcode returns an empty string here, how can I fix it? Thanks

    Hi jesa29,

    thanks for reaching out.

    Please verify that the second filter is working without Advanced Ads involved. E.g., you could give $aaa some static value and see if that works. I believe it could be an issue with the function in general and not the shortcode per se.

    If returning a static string on the correct place works when please remove any conditions you might have set for the particular ad.


    Removing all stuff like Clearfix and type Adsense Ad helped, thnx
