EE 2.6.1
Assets 2.3.1
Wygwam 3.3

We are having an issue where images from Assets are added to a Wygwam field, but do not display on the front-end or view entry page after save. They do appear fine within the Wygwam field on the Publish/Edit page.

A screenshot and corresponding HTML output looks like the following:

<img alt="" src="{assets_32:http://mydomain.com/uploads/myimagename.png}" style="width: 491px; height: 208px;">

enter image description here

I tried implementing the fix found here, but it did not resolve the issue. The assets tag is still not parsing.

  • No problem Andris, will do. Thought this might be a good place to start :)

I believe this is the same problem as in this thread. Low's solution should help you. He said:

To make sure extra processing is done before the var is put in the template, use the tag syntax rather than the variable syntax: {exp:low_variables:single var="my_wygwam_var"}

So try using {exp:low_variables:single var="my_wygwam_var"} Rather than {my_wygwam_var}
