oik [null] Shortcode

The Oik plugin shortcode [bw_shortcode_event] is designed to expand and process specific functions within your WordPress content. It checks the current filter and tag, determines whether to expand, and identifies the shortcode function to apply. If a post-processing function exists for the result, it applies it. The shortcode ensures seamless content processing, enhancing your site’s functionality.

Shortcode: [null]

Examples and Usage

Basic example – Displaying a shortcode by referencing its unique identifier.

[bw_shortcode_event id="unique_id" /]

Advanced examples

Displaying a shortcode by referencing its unique identifier and setting the ‘expand’ attribute to true. This will allow the shortcode to be expanded and its content to be displayed.

[bw_shortcode_event id="unique_id" expand="true" /]

Using the shortcode to display a specific event by referencing its unique identifier and setting the ‘tag’ attribute. The tag attribute allows you to specify a particular event that you want to display.

[bw_shortcode_event id="unique_id" tag="event_tag" /]

Using the shortcode to display a specific event by referencing its unique identifier, setting the ‘tag’ attribute, and applying a filter to the shortcode attributes and content. The ‘oik_shortcode_atts’ and ‘oik_shortcode_content’ filters allow you to modify the shortcode’s attributes and content before they are displayed.

[bw_shortcode_event id="unique_id" tag="event_tag" oik_shortcode_atts="filter_atts" oik_shortcode_content="filter_content" /]

PHP Function Code

In case you have difficulties debugging what causing issues with [null] shortcode, check below the related PHP functions code.

Shortcode line:

add_shortcode( $shortcode, "bw_shortcode_event" );

Shortcode PHP function:

                    function bw_shortcode_event( $atts, $content=null, $tag=null ) {
		global $bw_sc_ev, $bw_sc_ev_pp, $bw_sc_te;
		// bw_trace( "<$tag>", __FUNCTION__, __LINE__, __FILE__, "tag" );
		if ( ! isset( $tag ) || $tag == null ) {
			$tag=bw_array_get( $atts, 0, null );
		if ( $cf == "the_title" ) {
			$expand=bw_get_shortcode_title_expansion( $tag );
		} else {
		bw_trace2( $cf, "current_filter $tag $expand $shortcodefunc", true, BW_TRACE_DEBUG );
		if ( $expand ) {
			if ( isset( $bw_sc_ev[ $tag ]['all'] ) ) {
				$shortcodefunc=$bw_sc_ev[ $tag ]['all'];
			} else {
				if ( empty( $cf ) ) {
					$cf='all'; // was 'wp_footer';
				if ( isset( $bw_sc_ev[ $tag ][ $cf ] ) ) {
					$shortcodefunc=$bw_sc_ev[ $tag ][ $cf ];
		//bw_trace( $tag, __FUNCTION__, __LINE__, __FILE__, "tag" );
		$result    ='<span>&#91;</span>' . $tag . ']';
		//bw_trace( $cf, __FUNCTION__, __LINE__, __FILE__, "current_filter" );
		if ( $shortcodefunc ) {
			//bw_trace( $bw_sc_ev, __FUNCTION__, __LINE__, __FILE__, "bw_sc_ev" );
			$atts         =bw_cast_array( $atts );
			$atts         =apply_filters( "oik_shortcode_atts", $atts, $content, $tag );
			$content      =apply_filters( "oik_shortcode_content", $content, $atts, $tag );
			$shortcodefunc=bw_load_shortcodefunc( $shortcodefunc, $tag );
			$result       =call_user_func( $shortcodefunc, $atts, $content, $tag );
			$result       =apply_filters( "oik_shortcode_result", $result, $atts, $content, $tag );

		 * Regardless of what routine we used to expand the shortcode we still need to check
		 * if there's a specific function to post process the result. e.g. remove attrs in admin processing
		//bw_trace( $result, __FUNCTION__, __LINE__, __FILE__, "result" );
		if ( isset( $bw_sc_ev_pp[ $tag ][ $cf ] ) ) {
			$ppfunc=$bw_sc_ev_pp[ $tag ][ $cf ];
			if ( function_exists( $ppfunc ) ) {
				$result=$ppfunc( $result, $cf );
			} else {
			    /* translators: %s: function name */
				$result.='<b>' . sprintf( __( 'missing post processing function: %1$s', 'oik' ), $ppfunc ) . '</b>';

			//bw_trace( $result, __FUNCTION__, __LINE__, __FILE__, "result" );

		bw_global_post( $saved_post );

		return $result;
