Third-party shortcodes in bbPress posts

    @yo35

    Hi,
    Is it possible to use WordPress shortcodes in bbPress posts? (I mean either native WordPress shortcodes such as [caption][/caption], [gallery ...], or shortcodes defined by third-party plugins).
    To be more precise, I’m the author of a WordPress plugin that allows to insert chess diagrams and/or chess games in WordPress posts/pages (see https://wordpress.org/plugins/rpb-chessboard/). I would like to extend to have chess games/diagrams in bbPress posts.
    Thank you beforehand.

    This used to work, see no reason why it should not still be fully functional!

    you may need to add this to your functions file to get it for particpants

    add_filter (‘pw_bbp_parse_shortcodes_cap’ , ‘publish_topics’ ) ;

    Hi!, I need to do this in my wordpress. I’ver already installed rpb-chessboard and bbpress-do-short-codes plugins, but i don’t know where i have to call function
    add_filter (‘pw_bbp_parse_shortcodes_cap’ , ‘publish_topics’ ) ;

    When I active bb-press-do-shot-codes [pgn] and [fen] sections were disappeard.

    Thanks!

    @Robin W: thanks for your answers. The “bbPress – Do Short Codes” plugin do the job.

    However, there is still a problem: bbPress seems to have a kind of postprocessing that adds several <p></p> tags within the post content, including the sections that result from shortcode processing. Is it possible to disable this behavior?

    @Martin: there is a workaround for the [fen] sections in the last version of RPB Chessboard. But [pgn] sections still do not work.

    @yo35: It can be done. But, you’ll need to either mod the plugin or insert a custom function inside your child theme (while deactivating the plugin to avoid conflicts).

    the original plugin code is:

    function pw_bbp_shortcodes( $content, $reply_id ) {
    	
    	$reply_author = bbp_get_reply_author_id( $reply_id );
    
    	if( user_can( $reply_author, pw_bbp_parse_capability() ) )
    		return do_shortcode( $content );
    
    	return $content;
    }
    add_filter('bbp_get_reply_content', 'pw_bbp_shortcodes', 10, 2);
    add_filter('bbp_get_topic_content', 'pw_bbp_shortcodes', 10, 2);
    
    function pw_bbp_parse_capability() {
    	return apply_filters( 'pw_bbp_parse_shortcodes_cap', 'publish_forums' );
    }

    What needs to change is the section returning the do_shortcode( $content ) as follows:

    	if( user_can( $reply_author, pw_bbp_parse_capability() ) ) {
    		$content = shortcode_unautop( $content );
    		return do_shortcode( $content );
    	}

    This will remove the autop filter that adds <p></p> to the shortcode text.

    Good luck.

    Hi @chadschulz. I Tried with that code but it didn’t work with [pgn] and the chessboard plugin.
    @yo35 any Idea?

    Thanks a lot!
