I am used to using layouts but have moved to Toolset Blocks.

I need to be able to disable the_content filter as a plugin inserts an audio player every time any element of that CPT is shown resulting in multiple audio players in one content template. When elements were inserted in layouts there was a handy checkbox option for this. Am I able to do this with Toolset Blocks?

Hello and thank you for contacting Toolset support.

Toolset adds hooks to the the_content filter for content templates and when displaying the post's content/body. When using the Single Field block to display the post's content/body, there is an option to suppress filters. But when inserting a content template block, this setting is not available.

You will need to include content templates using a shortcode instead of the content template block. This way, you can pass the  argument. For example:

[wpv-post-body view_template="Name or slug of the content template" suppress_filters="true"]

Read more about the shortcode here

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.


Thanks; that works!
