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! =)
I was wondering about truncating in general... when doing so instead of truncating at the exact character count... Could you not go back the last space prior to that and truncate there with a "..." appended.
In the example (see image below) the truncated caption would be;
"DES MOINES, Iowa — Farmers set new corn and soybean records last year, harvesting the largest crops ever as a cool summer allowed the plants to mature under mostly favorable ..."
"DES MOINES, Iowa — Farmers set new corn and soybean records last year, harvesting the largest crops ever as a cool summer allowed the plants to mature under mostly favorable condit"
That way the reader would receive an indication the text was truncated purposefully and and was not ;an error.
We're radio. We NEED an "audio playlist" type block that is NOT Flash! 50% of our traffic is from Apple products
I would actually recommend the Syndication tool. It's free and should be available under Editorial.
Using the Syndication tool, you can set up a channel to YouTube - based off of a user account or a keyword.
Then, you can either just pick and choose from the Syndication channel the items you want (it is really nicely integrated with Editorial).
Or you can create an importer to feed all of the items in automatically as YouTube assets. You can assign them a keyword, flag, section, delete date, etc.
However, I found nothing in the documentation about them. Are they available for use in UTL or elsewhere in Blox?
