On the standard editorial forms skin, if you pass ?p=1 through the form, it does "popup" mode without the shell of the site.
The guts of the form itself and simple and responsive, so once you get rid of the site shell, you're left with a responsive form.
So, you could link to this:
I thought I was remember something in documentation that I could disable comments per section (not per asset). If I am remember correctly, could someone kindly direct me to the right place? Thanks!
The Google Survey implementation requires a few more steps, such as having subscription set up, and IDs and so forth. It also requires a special 'Subscription Pro' contract, which you may already have.
Our staff would be very happy to help you with the set up though. Just submit a ticket to CS, or email your sales rep. Thanks! =)
PS Also note that Google Surveys doesn't always show a survey, and the default behavior when it doesn't is to show the content.
For example, Politico:
Atlantic City has one of the highest crime rates in New Jersey, with 4,287 crimes in 2014, 522 of which were violent, according to the New Jersey State Police’s website.
Crime levels are falling, dropping by 13.6 percent in the past year, but think tank and policy researchers list it as one of the main impediments to the city’s recovery as a tourist haven. The city’s budget cuts also led to reductions to the police department.

This is usually done with Tynt:
From what I recall, it is just some JS that you add to your footer.
We are wondering what the community would prefer as the default. The choices are to a) keep things as they are and have YouTube supply links to related videos or b) don't show any related videos at all after your video is done playing.
It is a macro that can be edited in the site component. If you have template access and know about the site component, it is in the messages file. If not, you can open a support ticket and they can do it for you or help you. =)
Here are details on how to add search parameters:
So, to exclude ap, the parameter would be &nfl=ap (for ap flagged articles).
This parameter can be added to any search form on the site via a hidden input field. Ask Customer Support if you need help setting this up. =)
This is understandably problematic as it doesn't allow the full article to be displayed and makes all our collections pointless to our app audience.
So, what can I do to make our RSS feed show the entire article and all (or even more) associated photos?
We are testing the Asset Index: Headlines block on our front page. However, we are feeding AP stories into the block and the "AP" flag is showing.
According to the docs, we can hide a flag, but I've tried every different configuration I'm not getting it to go away.
This is from the documention: skipped_flagsWith this setting, specific flags can be turned off. For example, if you have a block that pulls in assets that are flagged featured, every asset would have a featured icon next to it. To turn it off: skipped_flags = featured.
I'm not doing something right. Anyone? Thanks in advance.
We have a great doc on this here:
You'll need to get your login information from AP. But, other than that, it is very easy! =)
