WP Content Loop / Legacy Mode

Recommended Posts

huntington

just migrated from Frameworks to the newest DMS (pro)

 

When I was using Frameworks, under the "Blog and Posts" settings, I used the "Allowed Tags" option in the Clip Excerpts to enable elements like <iframe><img><object> to appear in the excerpt shown on my blog page.

 

I used that feature extensively... thankfully there's a legacy option that has enabled me to continue abusing that feature. 

 

Is there a better way to be doing this (allowing, for example, images or embedded YouTube videos to show up in excerpts displayed on the Blog page?

Hi,

 

This is related to WordPress and the except itself, as the excerpt strips out all HTML you have added. Therefore, if you want to use HTML such as iframes etc... you will need to use the legacy mode or use custom code. If you want to go down the custom code route you will need to ask this question on the WordPress support forums.

Ah. Thanks. Yeah, legacy mode is working well for me now, but I saw that there's a note saying that legacy mode won't be supported in future versions of DMS. I just wanted to see what I could do to start getting ahead of the curve.

 

Off the top of my head I think I might be able to use the Special Recent Posts plugin to create the same thing in a full width widget rather than use the Wordpress blog page and DMS legacy mode together. 

 

Thanks for the reply!

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      Hello,
      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
