The comcode tag text is showing before and after the content

I have successfully embedded a few videos using the video Comcode tag. I inserted them using the "Comcode tag assistant" link from the page edit mode.

What shows on the page in edit mode is:

What shows on the page when viewed in a browser is the video with the text "[video]" preceding it and the text "[/video]" on the line after the video.

Am I doing something wrong? Is there a way to just have the content (in this case the video) show on the page and not the Comcode tag text?

The site is using version 9.0.6.

There is no 'video' Comcode tag.

What you are doing is embedding a video by URL, which works without tags, then the non-existent tag opener and closer are showing.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
