Support » Plugin: NetBlog » NetBlog overwrites post content

  • Resolved skorvek


    Would love to use this plugin. However, with the recent update, it overwrites the post when publishing it, replacing the content with a <!netblog reference comment !>.

    Very frustrating!… This USED to work on my blogs. Backtracking and removing any new/updated plugins didn’t make any difference– I only get my posting ability back when disabling netblog.

    I’m using a multisite install of netblog, but as noted in the limited docs, I is installed locally to the desired blog, and not activated network-wide.

    Which version of Netblog and WordPress do you use? Do you use a custom editor or possibly a plugin which heavily changes the way WordPress works internally?

    Can you describe exactly what happens when you want to create, save and/or publish a post, please?

    The tag “<!–{NETBLOG_EXPORT} [encoded embedded export data] –>” is used internally to ensure export and import capability. The tag “<!netblog reference comment !>”, or any tag starting with “<!netblog” cannot be directly generated by Netblog 1.5.2 under known circumstances, since it does not make much sense to use such a tag – “<!– –>” is a HTML comment tag and thus not directly visible to your Website visitor. To ensure maximum security and privacy, Netblog filters the content of your posts before they are send to your visitor so that this EED (embedded export data) is not transmitted over the Internet for a Website access. This tag was made because WordPress lacks a filter for filtering a post’s content just before exporting it.

    Many thanks for your report.

    Try moving the Reference Maker meta box back to the sidebar of the publish post page. I had the same issue and this worked for me.

    Netblog 2.0.b1 does not write into WP articles anymore (see EED) – at least it is not required, and this option should be turned off, but for some reasons, you might need it.

    When you install Netblog 2.0.b1 or above, make sure to disable this option.
