Default Drip worked but shows Title and [DFR:drip?p=1...] ?

Drip feed worked but featured post on my homepage displays the [DFR:drip?p=1...] ? The post looks like the following:

Red Dead Redemption PlayStation 3
[DFR:drip?p=154400217814073] [Game news continued ..]

Also i need it to display the price and buy now button but it just has a button saying more information.

Hi

The reason that featured posts on your homepage only show the shortcode is because your homepage is set to display post excerpts only. You need to make your homepage show the full post (ie. the_content() instead of the_excerpt()).

To add a price to the dripped post, you need to edit this template: The Factory > Your Store > VIEWS > DRIP TEMPLATE > Default > Product Detail. You should add this [product.currency mode="sign"][product.price] to that template.

Please read posting rules regarding multiple issues in one thread.

Thanks Eric,

It was not set to show excerpts, it was set to display content limit which was 200 characters. I changed it to excerpt and it works now .. bizzare. Anyway, happy it works.

I've also got it displaying price corectly now.

The Image doesn't display on homepage but might be down to the template as had a play with the settings and can't get it to show.

Started to get my head round the codes now which is much better.

Cheers bud.

Hi Eric, i'v e just noticed a problme with my drip feed. I fyou go to website and click on second post on home page - Red Dead Redemption – PlayStation 3. It shows the buy now button.

But if you try and get to it from the GAME DEALS menu tab at the top the post shows without the buy button.

Any ideas why this is not displaying on the Game Deals Page.

Hi

This is the same issue as before, the_excerpt vs. the_content. You must use the_content() on your WP category page tempaltes in order to display the full drip template. This is how WP works. the_excerpt() strips all HTML (ie. images, html markup and links) out of the description.

Eric
