Support » Plugin: Reusable Text Blocks » Posts displaying end of post content after text blocks?

  • Hi there, great plugin!

    Thanks for making such a useful tool, but I’m having a bit of a problem.

    When I insert a text block into a post using the shortcode, the block is then followed by my end of post content, such as an optin form, series navigation links, and related post links – then the rest of the post content continues after them.

    It seems like those plugins see the text block and think it’s the end of the post and time to insert their content.

    I guess it’s not Reusable Text Blocks fault, but is there any way to stop this from happening? Or do I need to try and work with the plugins inserting their content?

    Thanks!

    I have the same problem. Did you ever find a solution?

    I think I know the solution and will try to put out an update next week.

    Hi Hal, have you made any progress on this? I installed the current version today and am having the problem reported here. Otherwise, nice plugin and I appreciate your volunteer effort. I’m glad I finally found it after an exhaustive search and am looking forward to using out as soon as this problem is resolved.

    Hi guys, try adding your text blocks with attribute plain=1 like so:
    [text-blocks id=”myid” plain=”1″]

    Technical:
    I don’t know what is intended in text-blocks.php line 300, but apply_filters( ‘the_content’ ) reruns all the functions assigned to ‘the_content’ by theme or other plugins, which might add some content or whatever. Would love an update on this 🙂

    Adding the plain=”1″ to the shortcode solves the issue for me.

    But the ADD BLOCK button in the editor only adds the shortcode without plain=”1″. So process becomes prone to mistakes especially when having someone else make your pages for you.

    To the plugin author: Can you fix this bug or make ADD BLOCK button add plain=”1″ version also?

    Hal, do you plan on releasing an official fix for this issue?

    I’ve been waiting for a month for a reply. Seems like have to delete and go through the process of excising the shortcodes from my content – since obviously not logical to continue with an abandoned plugin. Seems the last time author responded to a post was 7 months ago.

    Hal, can you at least let us know your plans moving forward? If you don’t have the time or motivation to proceed, that’s fine…just let us know.
