How to add short codes to dms


Question

Posted · Report post

Hi I need to add a simple optin form on the landing page on the right of the slider. I want to have a background graphic. I was able to add the image background to the column, but adding the short code in the text box nested in the column did not work for Firefox, but seems to work in Chrome http://buff.ly/1ktuPpP

 

How would I add a small opt in form to the right of my slider. I do have Gravity forms but wondering how to add the short code to the landing page of DMS. thanks

try the shortcode in the title of the textbox rather than in the html field.

Most shortcodes should work, as both the TextBox and MediaBox sections use the do_shortcode() function. However, if your shortcode isn't working, its likely caused by the shortcodes code itself. What shortcode are you trying to implement or plugin?

[gravityform id="3" name="Landing Page Opt In" title="false" description="false"]. Correction it views in Chrome dms but not when you log out and view website. As per the above email I want a small form to opt in on he right of the slider

 

But I have the gravity short form on this page [gravityform id="3" name="Landing Page Opt In" title="false" description="false"]

 

This is the page I will put it on (right of sider)

I would say if you've having issues with the textbox use the widgetizer section with a text widget inside it, paste your shortcode into the blank text widget. I've used contact form 7 in the past for my forms using this method.

Thank you, but I have to position it beside the slider. Can I do that. I tried to used the widgets and they always want to be on a side bar right?

The widgetizer is a section, so you can place that in the drag and drop wherever you want. This allows you to call widgets/sidebars into that area without it affecting the primary sidebar http://screencast.com/t/XfhGrMOn So in your case, you'd make a custom sidebar with one text widget in, call it myform or similar. Then select that in the widgetizer option so it displays one textbox in that area.

I think what happened last time is when I config the wigetizer it asked me what side bar I wanted to use. But I did not want to use the primary sidebar, which was the only drop down.

In your example can you tell me which top menu you used. I like what you did with the menu and background

In James image, that is the NavBar section using custom CSS to add a gradient to it.
