  • Resolved energykick


    So far I love this plugin but I use shortcodes in my title and access them with get_the_title() which has always worked. I have the title to shortcode enabled on my site. My problem is I cannot figure out where (if it is possible) to change the title output to do my shortcode. I tried this:

    $zg_get_title = get_the_title($value+0);

    and this:

    echo "<a href=\"". get_permalink($value+0) . "\" title=\"". $zg_title_out->post_title . "\">". get_the_title($value+0) . "</a>\n";

    but both give a sql error so I am missing something about the loop. I would love to see if this can be done.

  • Now I have found some nice way to format my output with a photo and all like this:

    echo "<div style=\"width: 550px;\"> <div style=\"float: left; width: 100px;\">";
    echo "<img class=\"floatLeft\" src=".get_the_post_thumbnail( $post_id, array(100,100));echo "</div> <div style=\"float: left; padding-left: 10px; width: 430px;\">";
    echo "<a href=\"". get_permalink($value+0) . "\" title=\"". $zg_title_out->post_title  . "\">". $zg_title_out->post_title . "</a>\n";
    echo "</div>";
    echo "<br style=\"clear: left;\" /><hr>";

    but still cannot get the title to calculate my shortcode. I also tried this:
    $zg_get_title = do_shortcode('[exercisetitle]');

    but it also gives and error. Does anyone have ideas how this can be done.

    Another neat way to do this is to find out the function used to add shortcode your will find function name in the add_shortcode line inside your functions.php or the plugin that generated the shortcode.

    add_action('exercisetitle', 'function_name');

    use that function like this

    $zg_get_title = function_name();

    Oh, thank you for answering so quick. I understand some things but not how the title shortcode works. I just added this to function.php

    add_filter( ‘the_title’, ‘do_shortcode’ );

    and it works. Do you know if there is a way I can use your $zg_get_title to tie into that somehow.
