  • Page builder won't save in WordPress (Discussion) => Fixed in 1.6.1

How to report issues here

Always create an new question for your issue. Then post an answer here with a short description and a link to the thread with your issue.

@hamlin.gordon and @stefano.ulivieri Please follow the guide line above

Not 1.6 related

@thomas.koenig.26 Support for 3rd party buttons has very low priority on our todo list at the moment

@michael.anlauf Lightbox in Pro: It's currently planned for Pro 1.8, but no promise.

@michael.anlauf Page Cache Plugin: Lets hope, it will be fixed with the next Joomla release :-)

@michael.anlauf There is no Pro issue with the WYSIWYG editor. It works just like the editor in Joomla works by default. Which tags and attributes are stripped, can be configured. For UIkit try all attributes with the data-uk- prefix. If you don't want to use the WYSIWYG editor, just select CodeMirror in the global editor settings of your user and only the code editor should show up in Pro.

@thomas.koenig.26 If you want to discuss the table or gallery element open new support threads, but it's not 1.6 related.

Thank's, looks good so far. I like the countdown element. Should be with an option to hide or unpublish the element when it reached the end.
How ever, congratulation.

WYSIWYG editor strips code

Quote from your blog:
"That's why you can switch between the WYSIWYG editor and code view."

I mean you are familiar with the problem so long YOOtheme exist i guess.
I am sure clients was told thousand times to use code mirror for a reason.
Now you added an editor with exactly the same problem.

Even the text in a Headline element is now surrounded by an paragraph.
(Headline problem fixed in 1.6.1)

Support question.

Similar problem also here.

Thanks Sascha.

@sascha CodeMirror was default editor in the first place. I never use the WYSIWYG editor.
The WYSIWYG editor shows up in the YOOtheme Pro builder anyway. Only deactivating the plugin prevents from showing up in the builder. (deactivation error fixed in 1.6.2)

As florian confirmed adding valid tags in the editor doesn't work satisfying.
How ever, you know quit well that TinyMCE was always a problem for YOOtheme themes and now you implemented this source of problems into the builder. I mean I welcome a editor for my clients but please without stripping the code.

Interesting detail: The editor prevent a customer from seeing the code you added to the demo.
I wonder how you will manage it in the future when people starting with the demos and the content is striped.
I know it's not YOOtheme Pro theme but I am sure you understand the problem.

There is an error in the switcher element when you use thumbs at the bottom.
Support question is here.

Well guys, that was close. The thumbs appear now but the blind text is still there. Content is deactivated!

I completely agree

Sorry yootheme, but the table element is absolutely useless.
I can only use the preset columns.
If i want build a simple table with 6 columns and only text fields it is not possible.
I think the most tables are NOT just title, meta, content, image and link.
The element is absolutely useless for 99 percent of all tables because of of insufficient flexibility.

Also not usable is the gallery element.
Why did you build the element without a lightbox?
The element is good, but without lightbox?
