Why is my edoobox design not adopted?

Since the WordPress plugin version 1.4 the bootstrap designs of courses are also transferred to the WordPress page. Therefore you have to select the setting for bootstrap in the WordPress plugin backend.
The first loading of a page with a new design can take a few seconds. After that the page should load with the normal speed.

Which WordPress version does the edoobox plugin require?

For the WordPress plugin to work properly we recommend to work with the latest WordPress version. Basically all functions from WordPress version 5 on should be included.

Are «out-of-date courses» displayed or with outdated content?

The most likely cause for this problem is that you are using a caching plugin (WP Cache / WP Rocket) which stores the dynamic page contents. So the WordPress plugin cannot update/display the necessary content on the page. To do this, clear the cache of the page so that the current content is displayed.

Courses on the homepage are displayed but cannot be clicked?

For the WordPress plugin of edoobox to work on the start page the root attribute must be set in the shortcode. See the following shortcode as an example:
[edbs_panel root=»» … ]
With the root attribute in the shortcode a path is set on which the sub pages of edoobox are opened.
This feature can be used on any page, but is required on the home page, blog pages and possibly on other pages that are not part of the WordPress standard.

Shortcode does not work!

Most likely you have made a typing error. Note that the short code is edbs_panel. Shortcodes must always have a space before the closing bracket. [edbs_panel ]

Tip: Create the shortcodes via the edoobox backend under Preview/Share.

From version 1.4 you can check in the WordPress Plugin Backend under Page Indexing if the page is listed. If the page is not listed, try to start the manual search by clicking on the button.
If the page is still not displayed, the page type is probably not supported.

How do I use the shortcodes in different languages?

In the shortcode the language attribute can be easily extended. Following example:
[edbs_panel language=»en» … ]
As you can see, only the «language» attribute must be filled in with the corresponding language abbreviation.

What is the «Shortcode Next»?

(Version 1.5 or higher) Next is a mutation of the standard shortcode which allows to display events with your own HTML.

For example, on the start page the next 5 offers can be displayed before the start and this still in your own layout. All settings can be found in the edoobox WordPress Plugin.

I receive an error code. What does it mean?

You will find a list of the error codes in the following documentation:

Habe seit längerem edoobox bei uns im Einsatz und die Integration via iFrame gelöst. Da ich Wordpress verwende habe ich nun das Plugin verbunden. Funktioniert super und alle Seiten sind auch für die Suchmaschinen auffindbar. Ein echter Mehrwert für uns.

Bootstrap Accordions from Themes or other Plugins instantly doesn't work properly after activating this plugin.

Super Plugin, war sehr schnell eingerichtet und meine Kurse waren direkt online ersichtlich. Mit edoobox sind wir in der Verwaltung der Kurse viel effizienter und bietet viele coole Funktionen

Einfaches Backend, mit guter Übersicht (speziell seit dem neuen Update)! Definitiv über einem simplen iFrame zu bevorzugen. Kleine Änderungen im Plugin-Code lassen sich auch relativ einfach umsetzen. Und bei Fragen steht der Support auch schnell zur Hilfe.

Das Plugin verspricht viel, aber hält leider nur wenig. Gerade für Anwender die Ihr SEO boosten wollen, wäre dieses Plugin im Zusammenhang mit Edoobox sehr interessant. Die aktuelle Einbindung per Iframe ist gerade im Zusammenhang mit SEO, einfach nicht mehr zeitgemäß. Zum aktuellen Zeitpunkt ist das Plugin aber noch total buggy. Designs werden nur fehlerhaft übernommen, versucht man 2 Kategorien per Shortcode in eine Seite einzubinden, wird die Seite unbrauchbar und in manchen Fällen auch nicht mehr editierbar (z.B. mit Elementor). Da muss man dann evtl. seine mühsam gestaltete Unterseite neu aufsetzen. Weiterhin verhalten sich Tabellen die per Plugin /shortcode eingebunden wurden nicht mehr responsiv. Gerade in Zeiten von "Mobile First" sehr ärgerlich. Hier sollten die Entwickler schnellstens Abhilfe schaffen. Leider kann die Hotline keinen Zeitpunkt nennen wann hieran gearbeitet und ob überhaupt noch daran gearbeitet wird. Eine bessere Kommunikation mit den Kunden wäre hier wünschenswert. Wie gesagt, Idee ist wirklich gut, Umsetzung leider mangelhaft.

Das Plugin ist einfach aufgebaut, damit ich mein Kursangebot mit einem API Key vom bestehenden edoobox Konto einfach in die Seite integrieren kann. Vorteil dabei ist, dass die Kurse und Kategorien in der URL übernommen werden und so auch von extern direkt drauf verlinkt werden können. Das Design wird vom edoobox System übernommen.
