Custom HTML in Title Field of Services Block

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to add simple HTML (primarily italics and a forced break) to the title field of individual pieces of content within the services section area. Within the WYSIWYG editor, I'm able to see this header as intended, but when I hit save and view the live page, the code I've entered is now visible (see attached screenshot). Is this possible?

In most cases unless the field says that it supports the input of HTML, then it will be sanitized before being displayed to a site visitor.

If I've sussed out the section you are using you should be able to use italics and returns instead of HTML.



Tip : You type shift-return to get a line break that isn't a new paragraph as seen near the xyz in the second image.

If you need more than these built-in options then you are into using JavaScript to manipulate the text in a special way. There are examples of this technique most often used in a store page to get special formatting. I don't have any specific pointers off the top of my head. They also wouldn't solve this issue but show a general principle.

Let us know how it goes.
