Support » Plugin: wp-Typography » wp-Typography and Divi

  • Hi Peter,

    there was a support thread regarding the Divi Theme earlier this year already (https://wordpress.org/support/topic/not-working-in-divi-person-module/). The problem still seems to exist — in one way or the other.

    Basically hyphenation using wp-Typography works with Divi as far as I can tell — but Divi includes a Theme Builder to generate standard content for certain Posts/Pages (like Sidebars, just much more powerful ans flexibel). Content generated in Divi Theme Builder does not hyphenate.

    I got in contact with the Divi Theme Support Team. The result is an internal “Feature Request and the developers will check this.”

    Looks like the problem could not be solved after the Support thread that I mentioned above. Probably nobody took care of this then.

    Divi Support also advised: “In the meantime, please contact the plugin developers, they may need also to update their code so it will work with Divi Builder.”

    This reads a little too general but I give it a try. wp-Typography is a wide spread and powerful Plugin and should work properly with Divi — which is a wide spread and powerful Theme.

    So is there any chance to make these two great pieces of software work together properly?

    Cheers, Frank

    Hi @frank-j! I’d be glad to help, but I still don’t have enough information on Divi. Unfortunately, their developer documentation is pretty sparse and as it is a closed-source product, I can’t just look at the code (or test things).

    Hi Peter,

    thanks for your reply.

    Divi Development has the problem on its list — but of course there’s no statement when they will look at it. So far Divi Support claims that it is a Plugin problem though.

    While chatting with Dvi Support I got this statement:

    “They should change their code so they will not look only for the_content function but the entire code in the page.”

    Maybe this can help?

    Cheers, Frank

    PS. I am just starting with Divi and encountered the problem in this project:

    https://occupy-occupy.de

    The left side of the starting page (one column) is generated by a Post/Page. Hyphenation works here as expected. The right side of the starting page (two columns) is content generated by the Divi Theme Builder — as you can see hyphenation does not work in this area.

    Hi @frank-j, it is possible to process the entire page output with PHP output buffering, but if there are any constructs that trip up the HTML parser (either due to the document not being well-formed or because the parser has a bug), the site can break. This is much less likely when using doing it selectively via filter hooks (also this is much closer to the “WordPress way” of doing things).

    A full-page mode is something I’ve been thinking about for some time, but as there is no standardized API (i.e. no existing filter hook), there’s a lot of breakage risk, so I’d have to support both the various filters and the full-page mode for the foreseeable future. I don’t know if I want to do that.

    To be honest, a dismissive answer like the one by Divi support is not something that makes me more willing to donate hours of my time for improving compatibility with a commercial closed-source theme. I’m not blaming you as the messenger, but they have all the necessary information (their own code and mine), but somehow expect me to fix things.

    PS: It would help if you could try out the snippets in my initial comment in the other thread – that would be the basis for a full-page mode.

    Hi Peter,

    I fully understand your point regarding your motivation. I felt the same when I read Elegant Theme’s statement.

    Besides that I tried the snippet. Result: no hyphenation in the parts generated by Divi’s Theme Builder.

    Cheers, Frank

    Can you try to add error_log() calls to see if the functions are called at all? If not, it would appear that those action hooks don’t fire when using Divi.

    (@pputzer)

    Hi @frank-j, have you been able to check whether the functions get called at all?

    Hi Pepe,

    I somehow missed your last but one post. Where would error_log() be added?

    Cheers, Frank
