Filter shortcodes from slider?

Is it possible to filter shortcodes out from the text displayed on the slider images? I often open posts with images, and my displayed text ends up being a lot of ‘[caption id="" align=“alignright” width=“150”]’ kind of stuff rendering the slider pretty much unusable.

You need to edit the theme a bit for this. Go to /inc/slider/slider.php and on line 61 find this:

<?php echo wp_trim_words( get_the_content(), 30, '[...]' ); ?>

Replace it with this:

<?php echo strip_shortcodes( wp_trim_words( get_the_content(), 30, '[...]' ) ); ?>

Thanks for your feedback, this will be added to the next theme update.

That did the trick perfectly.

Thanks for the theme it’s been great to work with while we’re getting things started!
