How to use Plugins in SP Page Builder

Featured Lock Resolved

i tryed to use a plugin within SPPB.
I used {mosemap} in AccordionApp and it works. same in RAW HTML-App
But if i want to use f.e. {breezingforms}testformular{/breezingforms} it doesnt work

Syntax tested on a single Articel works fine, so the syntax shouldnt be the problem.
Is there a solution?

Hello sekisback, in general "Content Plugins" do not run inside SP PageBuilder. I assume the {mosmap} syntax is from Reumer's GoogleMap plugin!? This plugin seems to run as a System plugin. It might run in any context, this is an exception (to the rule).

A. ) If you want to show a BF form, you might use the BF module and load it in PageBuilder's J! Module AddOn.
B. ) Or you have to modify/override the Accordion AddOn. You can call a specific plugin or "contentPrepare" function programatically.

Can you offer any guidance on overriding the Text Block AddOn to be able to insert the contentPrepare function? I have a Phoca Download plugin I'd like to call in a few of the text blocks.

Here is the related topic:
There you should find a link to the GitHub issue and platform. See screenshot and comments for code snippet.

Thank you so much, worked like a charm. For those that search and find this:

Go here and override the addon for whatever you want a plugin in:

Edit the site.php now in your template folder and change:

$output .= $text;


$output .= JHtml::_('content.prepare', $text);

This is a great solution. Everything works correctly in the light version. Unfortunately plugins in the PRO don't load correctly. When I re-install the light versions, everything is ok. (Of course, I remember to exchange copy of the add-on in the template directory)
