Get the Page Content,without generating HTML

I want to get the page content (so i can parse the tags/short-codes in it), but i don’t want to output the result itself to the browser (i.e. echo=0).

I tried get_the_content(); but its the same deal.

Where are you doing your code parsing? If you’re doing it directly in the template file, inside the Loop, then you should be using get_the_content().

However, it might be more efficient to filter the_content(), via the the_content filter. e.g. in functions.php:

function mytheme_filter_the_content( $content ) {
    // add code here to filter the_content
    // which is contained in the $content variable,
    // then return $content
    return $content;
add_filter( 'the_content', 'mytheme_filter_the_content' );


If, for whatever reason, you just want to parse the_content(), pull out the shorcodes, and execute them, use do_shortcode() (Codex ref). e.g.:

$page_content = get_the_content();
$page_shortcodes = array() // ...some array that includes whatever shortcodes you found

foreach ( $page_shortcodes as $page_shortcode ) {
    do_shortcode( $page_shortcode );
         query_posts( 'type=post&posts_per_page=1' );

           if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();


             <?php the_content(); ?>

             <?php endwhile;


You can try this :

$page_data = get_page( $page_id ); 
$page_content = $page_data->post_content;
