Custom PHP in platform5?

Recommended Posts

jeomiland

Hi guys

Hopefully an easy question. I have some custom code included in a Next section in a DMS site that I'm converting to platform5. What is the easiest way to insert my code into a "section" which I can easily add to my page structure with the platform5 page editor? I have the Embed extension but that takes javeascript, and my PHP test failed. Also have the Shortcodes extension, but looks like that only inserts objects into the WP-loop? and again, how to create a Hook that can go here?

thanks...

thanks chris - it helped.
Ya can't do PHP now it seems without altering the shortcodes.php file - but does that file get wiped when you update Core Wordpress software?  Does a new file overwrite the old one in which you make your code? (which happens often... sometimes automatically which would be a big problem to custom code! Yes?)

Themes, of course, have child themes to deal with this. Is there a "child core file" capability that let's you add code that stays on updates???

There is a basic child theme in extensions. Please keep in mind that you may you use nearly any WP theme with PL5.

hi chris - appreciate you taking the time to reply>

Still, it seems you are suggesting one can simply put code into a child theme that will later become a shortcode that can be instered on a page? If so, how go about this? Do you simply add code to a functions.php file in the child theme?

Will appreciate a little more detail.

Again, trying to create PHP code I can use on a page.
I assume can somewhere, somehow create a shortcode?
research indicates one can make a change to the wp-includes/shortcodes.php file, bu that get's wipped out with Wordpress updates - right?
So how do you put that code into a child theme? (what function file name, and an example will be helpful

thanks!

      I would like to upgrade my site to PHP 7, but there is an error warning in the PL Framework theme. I should think this should be fixed asap, I cannot be the only person trying to be up to date.

      In the past I would use nextbox for this task. However, Platform 5 does not have nextbox. I will do my best to describe what I am trying to do.
      I am creating a template for coaches, each product has its own link but they all share a common coach id. I want to set up the templates with the links for each product with a variable for the coach id so that I can change the coach id for all the links on the site by just changing the value of the variable $coachId. To do this I'll need to do something like the following...
      <a href="salesite.com/productcodes/referringRepId=<?= $coachId ?>" target="_blank">Product Purchase Link</a> Is it possible to do this with Platform 5?

      I read a lot lately about how much faster PHP 7 is than older versions. Is PL5 compatible with 7?
      Does anyone have experience with running their whole PL5 site on PHP 7? Would love to hear your experiences.
      Thanks, Jan

      I've been trying to upload a video to use as a video background, but the size was 12m, and the alotted max file size is 8m. I downloaded a couple of pugins that increase the size by creating php.ini files and all of that jazz, but to no avail. It would say (Max file size = 250mb) but after I uploaded I would get an "HTTP ERROR",
      Soooo I logged into my cpanel and saw that the php I was using was 4 version out of date. I upgraded my php to PHP 5.6 and now I get
      Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 39583744) (tried to allocate 15 bytes) in /homepages/39/d200014696/htdocs/dymondentertainment.com/wp-content/themes/dms/dms/includes/less.plugin.php on line 848
      When I activiate another theme that is not pagleines, the site works fine.... but will no longer work with Pagelines DMS Version 2.2
       
      My site has no gone dark. What can I do?
