[wp-hackers] Excerpt output

my website uses shortcodes to define the structure of each page (Visual 
Composer). Since I don't use excerpts, search results display the 
content generated by those shortcodes. Is there a way to tweak 
the_excerpt so that all but one shortcode are stripped from the output?


[vc_row][vc_column width="1/4" el_class="sidebar"]sidebar content 
here[/vc_column][vc_column width="3/4"][vc_column_text 
el_class="use-as-excerpt"]main content[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

When the excerpt is displayed, it should return just what's inside the 
vc_column_text shortcode: main content.

When inspecting the content passed to the function by add_filter( 
'the_excerpt', 'strip_shortcodes' ), 100 ) , I see the shortcodes have 
already been executed :/
