useability of shortcode

Recommended Posts

micstepl

When within a content section & using "shortcode button". My recommendation is for the Pop-Up in "pagelines sections" , where it is annoying that someone needs to enter the "unique-ID".

Recommendation

  • based on the selection of a section 
    • (relational) offer custrom ID-Names in a drop-down (for selection)
    • meaning, where a customer has already taken action to enter a Custrom-ID
  • offer the choice to either enter
    • use the drop-down (der Zustrom-ID´s in use)
    • or enter a unique-ID (as now available, randomly given by the system)

All section shortcodes require an ID.. we just added a fix to generate a random ID if you do not set one.

Simon,
I am totally aware of what you say, but I do suggest, as a useability support, following:

Once a user takes the initiative to set his "custrom ID-Name", Platform5 could offer these entries to the user in the Pop-Up, alternatively (parallel) to the generated ID - categorized by section names!

There is no way to save them, or track them

What if a user adds a shortcode to post 1.. then later things whatever and deletes it from the content area.. it would still show up in the dropdown, you would end up with 1000's of items in a dropdown

      We're often working with ACF (https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/) that's great for user experience in the backend, 'cause we don't want out clients to be in the editor to much.
      So we want to be able to use shortcodes in the editor fields, regardless of section, THIS WOULD BE SO GREAT. Is there a way to fix this, it should open up som much more functionality.
      In ACF, the shortcode is for example: 
      [acf field="field_name"] ...for example, I want to att field_names value to display in a section, i understand I can make it in embed and so, but I want it in titles and options, the whole range.
      I know I can build my own sections, that we've done, but it's not very effective, and thats what PL5 is about.
      Any ideas on this, can Pagelines take this in the core? I guessing there are more than just ACF out there who can use this.

      I have to admit to being baffled.
      I'm trying to embed a video (from my WP media library) within a WP post using the videobox section shortcode.
      The shortcode section popup only allows two items to be configured - the section type, in this case videobox - and a unique id. There's no URL or other parameters such as autoplay or loop which are available within the Pagelines editor.
      Whatever I put in the unique ID makes no difference to what is shown which seems to be a default video with stars or white noise on a black background.
      I assume I need to define this ID somewhere else, or maybe WP has done it for me?
      HELP!
       
      PS This is the page source generated when a shortcode is added within the WP post editor
      <!-- VideoBox | Section --> <section id="videobox_1675853156" class="pl-sn pl-col-sm-12 pl-col-sm-offset-0 pl-sn-videobox" data-object="PL_VideoBox" data-clone="1675853156" data-level="0"><div class="pl-sn-wrap"><div class="pl-sn-pad fix" data-bind="pledit: true" > <div class="video-highlight"><h3 class="video-title" data-bind="pltext: vb_title"></h3></div> <div class="pl-video-box" data-bind="plcallback: { vb_autoplay: vb_autoplay(), vb_loop: vb_loop(), vb_controls: vb_controls(), vb_video: vb_video()}" data-callback="videobox"> <video id="280414138" autoplay loop > <source src="https://www.handinhandmanchester.org.uk/wp-content/plugins/pl-section-videobox/default.mp4?r=280414138" type="video/mp4" /> No browser html5 video. </video> <script> jQuery('#280414138')[0].load(); </script> </div> </div></div></section> </div>  
      If I add a videobox section using the Pagelines page editor the page source generated includes my video:
      <!-- VideoBox | Section --> <section id="videobox_udvu4uz" class="pl-sn pl-col-sm-12 pl-col-sm-offset-0 pl-sn-videobox" data-object="PL_VideoBox" data-clone="udvu4uz" data-level="0"><div class="pl-sn-wrap"><div class="pl-sn-pad fix" data-bind="pledit: true" > <div class="video-highlight"><h3 class="video-title" data-bind="pltext: vb_title"></h3></div> <div class="pl-video-box" data-bind="plcallback: { vb_autoplay: vb_autoplay(), vb_loop: vb_loop(), vb_controls: vb_controls(), vb_video: vb_video()}" data-callback="videobox"> <video id="429558737" autoplay loop > <source src="https://www.handinhandmanchester.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/HIHWelcome.mp4?r=429558737" type="video/mp4" /> No browser html5 video. </video> <script> jQuery('#429558737')[0].load(); </script> </div> </div></div></section>

      On my site www.anewbeginning.com the "toggle" function mysteriously stopped working.  I have tried all browsers, tried disabling plugins, removing all the relevant CSS but still cant understand why it isn't working.
      The toggle is placed on this page: http://anewbeginning.com/?page_id=15965 and http://anewbeginning.com/?page_id=10779 but it does not display.
      On my other Platform5 websites, that exact code works fine: see here http://4aa.d11.myftpupload.com/?page_id=123
      Code is the same. Please help, thank you!

      Hello, 
      I am having a problem with shortcode not working properly with the PL5 theme. I have been trying to insert shortcode for a specific plugin (Map List Pro) and it has worked when I am using DMS but not with PL5. When I insert the shortcode into the page content then none of the content (text, images, or map) will load on that page. Thinking that maybe a widget or straight HTML code would work better made me try inserting the shortcode into a widget (didn't work) as well as an embed section within PL5. The embed section worked in that I can look at the code and see that the map is there but nothing is actually displaying on the page.
      I am also unable to edit the embed code section (added through PL shortcode into the content of the page) once I have put in the Map List Pro shortcode. Any thought as to a workaround or if the codes are somehow interfering with one another? You can see the page (and gap where the map is supposed to be loading) here: http://new.fingerlakesdistilling.com/where-to-buy
      Thanks so much for any insight you are able to provide!
