When I use shortcode for video or auto responders within posts or pages it works.
When I use shortcorde in hero content or home content within the homepage settings, it doesn’t work.
Do you have a list of shortcodes that work with this theme?September 18, 2015 at 1:51 am #17946
I’d love to add short code to “Right Featured Content” and “Featured Content” just like I can in normal posts/pages.September 18, 2015 at 3:50 am #17948
Bootville doesn’t have any built in shortcodes it’s not a good idea to add them to a theme they should be added through a plugin instead.
Bootstrap classes do work with this theme in posts, pages and widgets, This plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/bootstrap-3-shortcodes/ makes it easy to add bootstrap elements (buttons, forms etc ) to posts.
Bootville Options > Support in your admin section has a bit of information listed on recommended plugins.
I would need to know what shortcode your trying to use and what plugin the shortcode is for so I can test it with the home template.September 19, 2015 at 3:30 am #17950
Thanks for your support.
Within posts and pages the following code will show my video steaming from S3. No need for bootstrap plugin.
[video= src="http://xxxxxxxx.cloudfront.net/videos/test.mp4" width="600" height="338" expires= "+20 minutes" poster="http://xxxxxxxx.cloudfront.net/images/videotrainingsplash2.jpg"]
When I insert this code in the “Right Featured Content” within the home page settings it does not work. (visual tab or text tab)
How can I get this to work?
Thanks in advance.September 19, 2015 at 11:13 pm #17951
Youtube videos work but that’s using an iframe. I’m guessing since the template doesn’t have the_content in it the built in WordPress shortcodees are not executing in that template.
try using this and let me know if it works for you
<iframe src="http://xxxxxxxx.cloudfront.net/videos/test.mp4" width="600" height="338" expires= "+20 minutes" poster="http://xxxxxxxx.cloudfront.net/images/videotrainingsplash2.jpg"></iframe>September 19, 2015 at 11:46 pm #17952
This worked then I adjusted it to
<div class="embed-responsive embed-responsive-16by9"><iframe src="http://xxxxx.cloudfront.net/videos/test.mp4"poster="http://xxxxx.cloudfront.net/images/videotrainingsplash2.jpg"></iframe></div>September 20, 2015 at 2:30 pm #17953
Great I’m glad it worked. I will still fix this issue I’m sure it’s because of the missing the_content in that template which is what the built in shortcodes look for. Thanks for letting me know about the problemSeptember 21, 2015 at 1:00 am #17954
Will the theme have a notice in my admin panel that “An Update Is Available”? Or will I have to check the download page on this site?September 21, 2015 at 3:51 am #17955
You should receive an email when there is an update. The update notifications only work for themes that are downloaded from WordPress.org. I also make a new post on the blog when I release an update for any theme.September 28, 2015 at 11:24 pm #17969
Where would I add “the_content” so the front page can execute short codes like pages and posts can?September 30, 2015 at 1:29 am #17972
Technically the_content is already used in the front page template but the way it works is the template pulls in information from other templates that use the_content and displays it. Without recoding the template I don’t think it’s possible.
Shortcodes are just a simple way to add something (such as a video or button) there is always a manual way such as using the embed code or iframe which should always work.
