Process the [embed] shortcode.

Syntax Syntax

WP_Embed::run_shortcode( string $content )

Description Description

Since the shortcode needs to be run earlier than other shortcodes, this function removes all existing shortcodes, registers the shortcode, calls do_shortcode(), and then re-registers the old shortcodes.

Parameters Parameters


(string) (Required) Content to parse

Return Return

(string) Content with shortcode parsed

	public function run_shortcode( $content ) {
		global $shortcode_tags;

		// Back up current registered shortcodes and clear them all out.
		$orig_shortcode_tags = $shortcode_tags;

		add_shortcode( 'embed', array( $this, 'shortcode' ) );

		// Do the shortcode (only the [embed] one is registered).
		$content = do_shortcode( $content, true );

		// Put the original shortcodes back.
		$shortcode_tags = $orig_shortcode_tags;

		return $content;
