[resolved] Content blocks: can you id by post name, rather than number? (4 posts)

    Hi Johann,
    Thanks for the excellent plugin.

    3 questions. 1) In the wysiwyg editor, we simply select the name of the content block in a dropdown menu and the shortcode is inserted. Is it possible to select the content block id by name? I'd prefer it as it makes the coding of the page less opaque to editors: they'd understand just which content block it is and where to edit it.

    2) There are some other plugins that enable a "content block" post type, and I'm wondering if they conflict with this plugin since they create the same post type name.

    3) Finally, please add some more tags to the description of your great plugin: it doesn't appear in a search for "content block"!

    Hi Nimmolo,

    Because the ID of a content block always stays the same, this is the best way to use them in a shortcode. Otherwise the content block would disappear if you would change the title.

    Yes, I think it would cause a conflict if there is another plugin that uses a post type called content_block, but I am not aware of any.

    Unfortunately the search functionality on the WordPress plugin site does not work very well. Even though I have added the tag "content block" to the readme file and to the main text of the description, it does not show up in the results list. Not sure how to fix that...

    Thanks for your comments and compliments, I would really appreciate it if you could rate my plugin!

    Good catch. I hadn't even noticed that it's not searchable using that key phrase. Fortunately, I tend to bookmark plugin pages that I frequent, such as the one for this.

    @nimmolo: I must say that it's really weird that you can't find it like that, especially since you have used 'content block' in the plugin decription.
