oh WOW Jason! thank you for the HTML5 info and suggestion.
It turns out the my issue was actually on Chrome – as QuickTime Player plugin is no longer supported on Chrome.
but because of wordpress and HTML5 – I see indeed that I can copy my video link from the Viper plugin, click “insert video” and paste, update my page and my videos work again – and even on Chrome!
you are a life saver!!!!
thanks Jason. I thought I should check about the theme first. I will contact the author of the plugin next. Thanks for your alternate ideas. I have a lot of videos up there and hopefully I won’t have to change them!
thx Jason, no apologies needed… yes I have gone to their support forum but unfortunately you have to purchase support from Simple Press (even to read the replies to posts) and I was hoping to figure it out without purchasing! But I may end up needing to do that.
thx anyway! have a nice day
Jason thank you!!! so simple to fix. YAY!! done
I am so grateful for the support you offer. It’s amazing.
Here is another issue that may be theme related?? Not sure, but worth asking. We aren’t able to find a solution yet, … after updates in WP and several plugins, (inluding theme builder) on April 26th after the Powell issue, one feature for a specific discussion forum plugin (Simple-Press Forum) works fine on apple mobile devices but doesn’t work on desktop (windows or mac). We have tested and experimented… to no avail.
we cannot click the Add Reply or Add Topic buttons on the forum on desktops… no response.
thanks for all your support 🙂
okay, we updated to the version you sent us. version 2.0.3
SIDEBAR LAYOUT ISSUE: appears to be fixed! … I used the starting point of my test template and the option for sidebar layouts is still there before publishing and after publishing the page. Good work!
PREVIEW of Content box: YAY! this works too now.
preview works before publishing and preview works after publishing the page as well.
it is so much easier to work with my homepage now that I can preview the changes.
thank you, Jason!
we have not done the update yet… hoping to get to that later today.
I see that #3 above does work correctly in my test (when synced to a template, the sidebar aligns with what I set up in the template) ! good work 🙂
referring to the second #2 above, – yes, when I say content box, I am referring to the content element associated with the current page. this is where preview doesn’t work for me.
okay, I will get back to you after we are able to do the update. I have a friend who helps me with this and he is not available yet…
The Preview Problem: here is another test working with the Preview issue: (I did clean out my cache, by the way, after updating to the latest version).
using my templates that I created,
1. preview works fine in any element BEFORE publishing a new page. It works in promo box, content box, and a column box…
2. AFTER PUBLISHING A PAGE: preview works in every element EXCEPT the content box. Preview features show no changes I make in content.
After systematic testing, the above is consistent. I can’t preview anything in my main content box of my created templates. I have to update to see any changes I make. Bummers!!
Hi Jason, I am away on vacation but taking a few minutes to update you.
somehow I got the sidebar layout option to work on my home page before I left on vacation. I have no idea how I did it! So I have my right sidebar and widgets back for my homepage, which is really all I need.
HOWEVER, for the future… and to figure out what the heck is going on … today I created a test template very similar to my homepage layout. and experimenting with different things…
1. as long as I use, (from the starting point) any of your sample layouts, the sidebar layouts option appears and is available to choose from before publishing
2. BUT … when I use the starting point of either of my created templates (homepage or test), the sidebar layouts option disappears immediately.
3. AND… When I sync to either of my templates, the sidebar layouts disappear as well.
OH!!! I figured it out…. the sidebar layout options are not there while creating a page with my templates. HOWEVER – AFTER PUBLISHING THE PAGE, AND GOING BACK IN TO EDIT – THEY APPEAR!!!! YAY!
ha! yay!! okay, now I can use created templates as long as I remember this issue.
has anyone else reported this???
Jason, thank you!
we updated to the latest version. and I now have the arrows showing up for each element. YAY!!
I do notice, however, that I have trouble finding the sidebar layout option
see screenshot here: http://screencast.com/t/iqLy007w
Jason, according to my dashboard, http://screencast.com/t/J2p0V66somU my theme is updated..
however, the version that I have of Barelycorporate in Theme Folder says verion 4.0.2
so… apparently, I do NOT have the latest version. It apparently is not informing me that I do in fact need to update.
how do I update without WordPress giving me a notification to update?
no, I did not clear about my browser cache. but I just tried that and it didn’t help… preview doesn’t work still.
Thank you for your rapid response!!!
Thanks Jason… I see what you have done here; I watched the layout builder and the “how to create templates videos” you sent me in my other posted question below:
But I don’t have any way to open the elements up even though I’ve unsynced my static homepage and chosen “homepage layout” under starting point. Unfortunately, my elements do NOT have any arrow to the right of “Element Label”.
see here: http://screencast.com/t/3tGxjZo8A6
Jason, oh yes!
my Front page set as a Static Page, Then under that, I have Front Page: Home and Post Page: Blog
So I tried what you suggested! sweet!!
So I assigned Blog Page and under Hierarchy, Homepage and All Posts. I think that’s all correct.
looks right! thank you so much!!!
here is the link to the site… we are in the process of building it now
