Adding a script (Source Code) to a Static Portlet

Modified on Wed, 14 Oct 2020 at 04:30 PM

At some point, you may want to add a script or source code to a cover page. This could be a resource search for a catalog, videos, and more. Enfold does not support scripts provided by 3rd parties. In other words, if there is a problem with the script not working such as an account issue we don't support that. However, we will help you install scripts and work through any issues Ploud might be doing to prevent the script from running. 

All content editing in Ploud uses the TinyMCE editor this applies to pages, portlets, and cover pages. You will recognize that you're using the TinyMCE editor when you see this on your display.

To add a script to a portlet you will want to add or edit a Static Portlet this example will be instructions for adding a static portlet and then how to add a script (source code) to the static portlet.

1.) As with any editing to the Ploud site, you must be logged in.

2.) First, we will want to select the Manage Portlets page button which you will find at the bottom of most pages.

3.) Selecting the manage portlets button will open the following page. From either the left column or right column from the Add Portlet dropdown choose Static Portlet for the type of portlet to add.

4.) On the TinyMCE editor toolbar select the source code icon (<>) 

5.) When selected a popup will display this is where you would enter or paste your script. When finished select 'OK'

6.) Make sure to select Save at the bottom of the page in order to save all your changes.


Note: Not all scripts provided by 3rd party vendors work with Ploud. if you have an issue let Enfold know we may be able to help should the issue be Ploud blocking the script.  Ploud has security measures builtin that in some cases can be worked around if we find that the script is not harmful.
