Article add-on source problem

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
Hello,

I am having issue with this add-on. When I add this add-on (articles) to a page, it will ONLY pull data from an article that was written in the Joomla editor. It will NOT pull anything that was written in SPPB Editor.

The articles have the option to go to SPPB Editor, but the intro text & image doesn't show up unless I place it in the Joomla editor. What do I need to do in order to resolve this issue?

Please help!

Hi,
yes, it works like that. Article addon is not to display SPPB content. It wasn't designed for it.

I see, in that case I can't really use the article's integration then? Because if I use that to be able to use SPPB on my article then it will not show anything on the front end until users click on it to open the article. If I want to show any article content, then I will have to use Joomla editor instead of SPPB. It's kind of defeat the purpose of having Article integration don't you think? Is there any plan of development to make use of the "Article Integration" fully?

Article Integration was developer to use SPPB inside articles , because some users need unique design inside or they do not want to use "Pages" and keep all content inside "one" component. This was main purpose.

In December we do not plan any changes in that area.

To be quite honest with you, I completely agree with you. It does make it easier for end users to create unique design in article using SPPB. However, what good is a nice design if it cannot be shown on the front page? If we use SPPB to design/create the article, then in the front page all that will be shown is ONLY the title of the article. Nothing else. This is what I meant by defeating the purpose. If it will show at least the Title, image and intro text like it should be, then that would hit the goal of creating a good article design - right on the money.

Right now Article addon can show only Intro text added in default mode.

As I said probably upcoming versions in 2018 may improve this area as well.
