Class on a <H> tag and class on a <p> tag

Class on a <H> tag and class on a <p> tag

Hello Jason,

I can fix this manually by changing my <p> tags but just curious about this.

When Logged into the CMS and on the page to edit: (does not happen if not logged in) explained better below -

So if I style a <p> and then place the Developer Notes inside of he tags my styles are removed when in "Edit" or in "Hide live edit".
However if I place the developer notes inside of a styled <h> tag the styles remain.

This is confusing the client.

Example from the source code:

<p class="Whitey PadLeft20 PadRght20">
<?php
include('/home1/plainvi5/public_html/WA_CMS/addtosite.php');
echo WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection, $PowerCMSConnection, '1- Home Page', 'Left Content', false);
?>
</p>

Whitey making font white - other styles are self explanatory.
But when logged into the CMS those styles are removed and font/ layout reverts to basic black with no padding.

However this is not the case on an <h> tag. Example:

<h1 class="Whitey PadLeft20 PadRght20">
<?php
include('/home1/plainvi5/public_html/WA_CMS/addtosite.php');
echo WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection, $PowerCMSConnection, '1- Home Page', 'Title Left', false);
?>
</h1>

Keeps the H1 styling attributes.

No bigs. I can just place all <p> inside of a div with the styles but now I need to go through the entire site and do this. Just thought maybe there was something stripping the <p>s and ot the <h>s.

Cheers

I'll need to troubleshoot directly, see the private message section.

This is happening because the p tag is not part of the content.

so this means, that the content is being removed from the p tag and placed into a div with the class cms-content

you could edit the WA_CMS/WA_CMS.css file to change that class and give it the properties to match the whitey class.

Interesting that it does not happen to the other <h1> tags .

My work around in the code looks like:

<div class="Whitey PadLeft20 PadRght20">
<?php
include('/home1/plainvi5/public_html/WA_CMS/addtosite.php');
echo WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection, $PowerCMSConnection, '1- Home Page', 'Left Content', false);
?>
</div>

And just put the <p> without styles inside of the cms "content".

Ok just thought I would check. Thanks for looking.
