Nested shortcode for ID

  • UserCentrix


    I am trying to integrate BBPress into a site created with Toolset – Layouts, Types and Views.

    The following BBPress shortcodes require an ID parameter:

    [bbp-single-forum id=$forum_id]
    [bbp-topic-form forum_id=$forum_id]
    [bbp-single-topic id=$topic_id]
    [bbp-single-reply id=$reply_id]

    Each of the IDs required above are aliases for the post_id, which Toolset privides a shortcode for. In order to get the templates to work for layouts applied to single Forums, Topics and Replies I need to include the current post ID. The simplest way I can imagine to do this would be as follows?

    [bbp-single-forum id='[wpv-post-id]’]
    [bbp-topic-form forum_id='[wpv-post-id]’]
    [bbp-single-topic id='[wpv-post-id]’]
    [bbp-single-reply id='[wpv-post-id]’]

    Unfortunately I get the following output at the front end?


    This makes clear to me that nested shortcodes are not supported in the BBPress. Is there a straightforward way of extending this functionality, perhaps through the functions.php file? This would create full compatibility with BBPress and Toolset. I couldn’t find any solutions to this shared on this support forum but it seems to me as something that may be a common problem and could have been tackled before.

    I hope you can assist.
