Is it possible to put a exp:channel entries tag loop into a wygwam field? Simply placing something, e.g.,

{embed="Common/sidebar_people" show_channel="48"}

... fails. The "Allow EE Code" plugin I thought was related but after installing it and looking through the php I'm unclear on its purpose.

You'll need to wrap your Wygwam field in the Allow EE Code plugin tags within your template:

{exp:allow_eecode embed="y"}
  • A-ha, thanks. It seems that tinyMCE's tidy routine requires that I wrap the embed code in <div></div> unless there's another way to avoid such a block-level wrap?
