Platformpro, Constantcontact, Features, Boxes, Javascript Problem

Recommended Posts




I have a ConstantContact form ready to go in a PlatformPro Box on a home page. When I stick in the form code from the ConstantContact form generator tool, it includes a <SCRIPT call that apparently conflicts with the Features code. What I see is Form displaying nicely, then it disappears as soon as an image trasition happens to the second image in the feature slider set AND the feature slider rotation of images stops - just hangs on the last one.


So I replaced the CC code with some HTML shortcode for a CForms form instaed.


Is there no way to have a Feature and a Box with javascript in it on the same page???


Check out http://lifeoncue.com/ but remember I have the Cform short code in now instead of this ConstCon code:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.formstack...ug6ZlO-v3"></script><noscript><a href="http://www.formstack...0946-TeDeug6ZlO" title="Online Form">Online Form - Constant Contact List Signup</a></noscript><div style="text-align:right; font-size:x-small;"><a href="http://www.formstack...fa&fa=h,1350946" title="HTML Form Generator">HTML Form Generator</a></div>

Hi Jeo


If its the Js conflicting then no, not unless they changed the code to make it compatible. Have you spoken to ConstantContact to see if they have any other options or can apply an alternate script?

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

No have not contacted them yet. Getting ready for holiday travel, so may take a while to do so.

Thanks for suggestion.

WordPress is using updated jQuery, and even if you've not updated, it can cause issues.


On a side note,  PlatformPro is now a legacy product and won't be updated any longer.  As WordPress changes moving forward, there is a high probability that some elements like Features won't work properly and there won't be a fix available.   Thus, I'd strongly recommend you upgrade to PageLines Framework as soon as possible. This will ensure that your site will be kept up to date and functional


We have a holiday sale going on that could be very beneficial.


Have a wonderful holiday and enjoy your travel.

      The images are forced into a boxed frame so that you can't see the whole picture. Doesn't look so good. Is this a bug? A feature? How can I fix it?

      The recent WP update seems to be quite cheeky...messing about with a number of things. 
      Having trouble with boxes displaying differently in different browsers.  1st screen shot is Chrom...looks ok. 
      2nd screenshot is Firefox...colors are different. Icons are different. Have weird 1000's next to the icons. Any idea what's going on?

      Someone reported this little bit of weirdness to me today. They were using Internet Exporer. I used an emulator, and I received the same result. Please see the attached.
      The website is richcruzchicago.com.

      Everything was fine with my site.
      Suddenly, strange characters are appearing in Boxes. See image. Site page is here. I even tried to add a new Boxes section but the same thing keeps happening, so I deleted the new section.
      How can I resolve this?
      Your help is greatly appreciated.
      Thank you.

      Could it be possible to add to the boxes an option so that if an Item has an optional link that we can also optionally make it open in a new windows.
      Thank you :-)
