How To Pop A Modal From A Hook

Recommended Posts

My understanding is that you can't use shortcodes inside pagelines hooks, but need to use the php that's behind the shortcode instead. I'm trying to place a button in a hook to open a bootstrap modal that displays another website. I can do that from a widget I'm using in a footer:

[pl_modal title="Newsletter Sign-Up" type="btn" colortype="info" label="Newsletter Sign-Up"]

[pageview url="https://somewebsite.com" height="630px" width="100%"]

[/pl_modal]

As you can see I'm using a shortcode inside a shortcode here. But what is the php behind these shortcodes? I can't seem to find them elsewhere.

Thanks

Well, honestly, I wouldn't know what that PHP is either. However, there's one other point you may have missed. You can also use standard HTML inside hooks too. So, if you wanted to use an HREF tag for the link, you could wrap it in a unique div, giving that div padding, margins and a background (the button).

The bigger question is, where do you want the button to appear?

Hey Blatka,

You could use a shortcode with a hook, you just also have to give it the instruction to be processed.

For example:

add_action('the_hook_you_want_to_use', 'insert_my_code');
function insert_my_code() {
$shortcode = '[pl_modal title="Newsletter Sign-Up" type="btn" colortype="info" label="Newsletter Sign-Up"]
[pageview url="https://somewebsite.com" height="630px" width="100%"]
[/pl_modal]';
echo do_shortcode($shortcode);
}

You will need to escape any single quotes you have in your shortcode content with a backslash like so ( ' ) if you have any to keep it from breaking your string prematurely. The example code should work as-is as long as you change the hook to a real hook.

You can check out the php for all of the pagelines core shortcodes in pagelines/includes/class.shortcodes.php!

Hi again

I use your code in a simple post

[pl_modal title="Newsletter Sign-Up" type="btn" colortype="info" label="Newsletter Sign-Up"]

[pageview url="https://apple.com" height="630px" width="100%"]

[/pl_modal]
and this don´t work then I modify for


[pl_modal title="Newsletter Sign-Up" type="btn" colortype="info" label="Newsletter Sign-Up"]

[pageview url="http://apple.com" height="100%" width="100%" border="yes']

[/pl_modal]

This work fine to me

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
       
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
       
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
       
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
       
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
       
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.

      Hi!

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:


      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
