get_the_content() WITH formatting

Normally the get_the_content() tag returns the content without formatting. I found out a solution to make get_the_content() tag return the same content as the_content().

For me and others that can be a problem if you expect them to behave the same. I looked into the WordPress core and found a solution. Put this code into your functions.php in your theme folder.

function get_the_content_with_formatting ($more_link_text = '(more...)', $stripteaser = 0, $more_file = '') {
	$content = get_the_content($more_link_text, $stripteaser, $more_file);
	$content = apply_filters('the_content', $content);
	$content = str_replace(']]>', ']]>', $content);
	return $content;
}

In your theme, call the function within the loop:
