SportingPulse has made an adjustment so that you are no longer able to select fonts and you are limited to the number of characters you can enter into this section (technically, we have removed the WYSIWYG editor from the 'Short Article Description').
This change has been made to benefit of the appearance of your website once news is published, and in particular, stopping your news section from breaking due to poorly formatted HTML.
We found by allowing full publishing features in the 'Short Article Description', editors were entering in whole articles and even videos into this area. In doing this the ‘News’ page on some websites had become extremely messy and hard to follow, and in many cases, using the ‘Short Article Description’ section incorrectly even caused breaks within the website.
SportingPulse does recognise that we've caused some confusion here, considering we did not place these restrictions earlier; however we are making this change to benefit everyone who views and uses your websites. Please remember when creating a ‘News’ item you need to enter the article and images into the ‘Article Content’ section. You have no restrictions in this area of your website editor. The ‘News’ section of your website is designed to display the ‘Short Artcile Description’ which viewers can read, then they can click on the ‘more’ icon to view the full ‘Article Content’.
This is the first of a few changes we’ll be making to news editing to ensure that news is easy to enter, and looks great when published to your website.
If you require more information or help with this change, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
