WordPress: calling PHP script/file in between two shortcodes

  • # April 5, 2012 at 11:27 am

    Hey everyone

    In WordPress, I am calling two NextGen Albums using these shortcodes in my Page content:

    [album id=1]
    [album id=2]

    Now I want something in between those two albums. This is fine if it’s just HTML:

    [album id=1]

    Here goes some awesome content


    [album id=2]

    So far so good, but what if I want to have some PHP code in there? Obviously I can’t add that in the CMS textarea. I tried creating a shortcode, so that it would be like this:

    [album id=1]
    [awesome]
    [album id=2]

    And then I would define the shortcode in FUNCTIONS.PHP. Then what happens? The results of the [awesome] code (no matter how simple) is placed BEFORE the albums?! I also tried defining the shortcode in the NextGen plugin functions, but no luck.

    So in essense, what I need to know….What’s the best way of calling a PHP script (or file) from the content area?

    Thanks all,
    mS

    Figured it out, needed some serious PHP scripting there.
