Problem displaying RT template module.

Problem displaying RT template module.

Im trying to display a module from a Rocket Theme template which contains a flash player.

This is all that is contained in the module

Code:

<div id="recent-videos">

<div id="recent-videos-object">
<p><a href="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer"><img src="http://www.adobe.com/images/shared/download_buttons/get_flash_player.gif" alt="Get Adobe Flash player" style="margin-top: 1em;" border="0" /></a></p>
</div>
</div>

All that is displayed is the adobe getflashplayer button.

Im just trying to display this module between time a and b each day.

Re: Problem displaying RT template module.

Hi dirtysnipe,

you should be able to just enter the start time and end time of day into the date/time boxes at the top of MetaMod configuration. Then enter the module id of your target module (above) into the "Quick module id include" box.

The times should be in 24 hr time like this:

06:30:00
21:15:00

(for example).

Don't forget to follow the instructions on the Quick Start guide page, with respect to disabling/unpublishing the target module so that it doesn't show up unless MetaMod includes it.

http://www.metamodpro.com/metamod/quick-start

Also don't forget to set the time zone using the dropdown provided.

Hope that helps,
Stephen

Re: Problem displaying RT template module.

I have used all of those settings and selected the module id.

It displays the module but it does not display the flash component inside the module.

Re: Problem displaying RT template module.

Hi dirtysnipe,

from what I can see, MetaMod is doing its job right... at the correct time of the day it is including the contents of module id 59.

The only thing that's confusing is from the output you pasted above; I can't tell whether it's displaying the "get flash player" graphic or is actually displaying the alt text on the screen. If it's only displaying the alt text on the screen, then something must be mangling the HTML after MetaMod has processed it. Try checking the HTML page source and see why the graphic is not displaying.

Note: if the module is just supposed to display the HTML you pasted above, then it should just display the download graphic, right? It doesn't look like it's supposed to display any actual Flash content.

Cheers,
Stephen

Re: Problem displaying RT template module.

Solved the issue. Joomla had striped the code out for the player.

I thought it was pulled in from somewhere else.

thanks anyway.

Great script

Re: Problem displaying RT template module.

Yes, that makes sense. I couldn't work out where the actual Flash code was supposed to come from, since the HTML in the module was exactly as you described above. Glad you found the reason.
