You could change Content field typ to "HTMLTextField" and post it from the CMS (use the HTML Editor)!

Hello everyone,

is it possible to use the HTMLTextField in a DataObject, somehow? I would like to use DataObjects instead of Pages in every subcategory. But I haven't found a way to embed youtube videos there, yet.

Any ideas for a solution?

Cheers

I would love some help with this as well. I tried changing the Content class to HTMLEditorField which seemed to work fine in CMS however when displayed on the website all the HTML was displayed as text. i.e. - <p>'s and youtube embedding code was displayed as normal text... Learning a lot as I work through this, any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

I have the following in the /mysite/_config.php file which disables bbcode and utilises TinyMCE instead:

BlogEntry::allow_wysiwyg_editing();

which allows Youtube entries, as seen here: http://crew.org.nz

BlogEntry::allow_wysiwyg_editing();

...I'm afraid I don't know what this does.. I included it in _config.php and nothing appears to have changed...
