[resolved] Call ID for template based inclusion? (3 posts)

    Firstly, this plugin is great work! It's saved me a ton of hacking.

    I've included an animation using the template inclusion method and would like to know if I can call a specific ID using that method the same way can with shortcodes?
    If not, something like: echo edge_suite_view([ID]); would be nice and easy to use if you could add that functionality.

    Hi Ben,
    thanks for the feedback. I'm not a big fan of including JS files inline within the body tag. At the moment this happen with shortcode proessing, but I'm thinking about changing that. With a direct call - like you are asking for - there would be no way around that, as there is no way to tell wp_head() to place the according JS files within the head tag. I dislike that as much as I dislike iframes, BUT of course it might make sense in some scenarios:

    Basically all you need is edge_suite_comp_render(id), which will return an array with keys 'stage' and 'scripts' (an array as well). You can put that together in a function:

    function edge_suite_view_inline($definition_id, $css_style = ''){
      $definition_res = edge_suite_comp_render($definition_id, $css_style);
      $stage = $scripts = '';
      if($definition_res != NULL){
        $scripts = implode("\n", $definition_res['scripts']);
        $stage = $definition_res['stage'];
      return "\n" . $scripts . "\n" . $stage ."\n";

    I'll wait until I have figured out what to do with shortcodes before I'll add the function to the plugin, otherwise I might have to change the function call later on. This could break stuff for people like you.

    Hope that helps

    Marking this as solved, let me know if you need any more assistance. I added the feature request to the roadmap on trello.
