Trying to get code to work through a module

Post by gingerweb » Thu Nov 16, 2017 1:40 pm


I have some "reviews" code from a company that should display the review on a page within Joomla. the code is:

<!--Your plug-in code can be customised to look
like your website using the following styling elements.
.SCMyWebsitePlugin-score div

<div id="SCMyWebsitePlugin-main" data-site_id="91e42c07-06ea-e511-be40-0050563fff01" data-number_of_reviews="3" data-no_styles="false" data-change_time="10000" data-character_limit="200" data-total_reviews="20" data-use_microdata="true" />

<script type="text/javascript">
(function() {
var newScript = document.createElement('script');
newScript.type = "text/javascript";
newScript.src = (
"https:" == document.location.protocol
? "https://"
: "http://"
) + "";
var firstScript = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0];

I have it setup using a custom module and also as currently using a module "Flexi custom code" on this page and as you can see nothing comes through.

anyone any idea why or how i can get this to work please?

many thanks for looking

Custom module edit screen ... options ... prepare content ... should allow plugins to be processed by the module. Alternatively edit the Tineymce plugin not to strip code so that you don't need an extension to insert the code. Or use JCE editor it has more options.
