<h3> and <p> tags inside <a></a> tags not showing

Post by Sendlingur »

I'm trying to use this code in the content editor

Code: Select all

<div class="col-lg-4 col-md-5 col-sm-6 flex-box floor-descr">
	<a href="{cms_selflink href ="seemorepage"}" class="service-box">
	    <p>More text text text text </p>
	  <span class="see-more">See more</span>
For some reason the content editor skips to render the <a></a> tags
But if I put this block in the template it shows with our problems.

I would rather not have to do that. What I need is to be able to paste it in the content editor.

Is there a way to do that without loosing the a tags?
Can anyone advise me on how I can manage to show this codeblock as it is?

Does the content editor have WYSISYG enabled? If so, disable it and try again.

Although there are ways to configure the wysiwyg to not strip out certain tags, you're better off setting pages to not use wysiwyg if you're expecting pasted html.
Not getting the answer you need? CMSMS support options
