How to disable specific shortcodes in Jetpack

Jetpack includes many shortcodes allowing you to embed videos, audio files, images, and other media into your posts.

If you want to deactivate a specific shortcode without deactivating the Shortcodes module, you can add the following code to your theme’s functions.php file, or to a functionality plugin:

function my_remove_shortcode_function( $shortcodes ) {
	$jetpack_shortcodes_dir = WP_CONTENT_DIR . '/plugins/jetpack/modules/shortcodes/';
	
	$shortcodes_to_unload = array( 'ted.php', 'soundcloud.php', );

	foreach ( $shortcodes_to_unload as $shortcode ) {
		if ( $key = array_search( $jetpack_shortcodes_dir . $shortcode, $shortcodes ) ) {
			unset( $shortcodes[$key] );
		}
	}
		
	return $shortcodes;
}
add_filter( 'jetpack_shortcodes_to_include', 'my_remove_shortcode_function' );

In the code above, you’ll need to add to or remove shortcodes from the $shortcodes_to_unload array. It requires the file name of the shortcode you want to deactivate.
