I there a way to submit News article with no content?

Post by Sendlingur »

Hi, all

I've been trying to submit a News article without content. It has content but for articles in this specific category I use custom fields for the content.

Obviously I always get the "No content given" message and can't submit the article.

Is there away around this?

Without customizing the module templates I don't think there is. Workarounds would be to add a comment or specific word that you test for in your output templates.
Not getting the answer you need? CMSMS support options

At the CMSMS showcase (https://welovecmsms.com) I had similar problem in CGBlog.
When I don't have anything for the Content field, I fill in a dot.

In the templates I use:

Code: Select all

{if $entry->content != '<p>.</p>'}
  {eval var=$entry->content}
{/if}
