Fixed 26 September 2023
We have currently a problem with the list block in the Block Editor on Glow Blogs. When you create a list, it only allows you to have one item. Pressing return does not give you another item in the list.
A fix has been found and will be release soon.
Use a classic block. This adds the older classic editor to a post where you can add a list.
Use a markdown block.
Markdown bullet list:
Markdown numbered list:
- item a
- item b
The about list was produced with the markdown block, here is a screenshot:
July 2022: Update: this issue is now fixed. The Glow Analytics plugin is now working as normal.
The Glow Analytics Plugin is not working at the moment, 16 Jun 2022. The Developers are aware of this and working on a fix. This may take a few weeks to complete, test and put into a release.
There has been a problem with dropdown menus in blogs using the Yoko theme on mobile devices. It the past this could be dealt with by using the Jetpack mobile module. This has now no longer available. There was also a rather complicated workaround using widgets and custom CSS.
As of 27 Jan 2021 there is an easy fix, using the Max Mega Menu plugin.
The plugin is quite powerful and has a lot of setting, but using it to fix the Yoko probelm is very simple:
Activate the plugin in Dashboard->Plugins, click Activate under the Plugin name.
Go to the menu section of the dashboard: Appearance->Menus
Load the menu used for Primary Navigation and tick the enable box in the Max Mega Menus’s Setting
We have discover a small issue with the Jetpack sharing module on Glow Blogs.
If Facebook and Twitter are selected to hide behind the share button they don’t show in IE11 it doesn’t work with Official buttons so the other option needs selected or they have to be shown individually.
We use the Icon Only setting here on the help blog.
We hope to fix this in a update soon.
We have had reports with a problem uploading PDF files to Glow Blogs.
This issue is now fixed, here is an example 3 page PDF uploaded to blogs: Test PDF file
PDFs that are uploaded to blogs are linked to the image thumbnails of the pdf. This looks like the first page of the pdf.
The developers are investigating a fix which we will be implemented as soon as possible.
We have a workaround at rather kludgy workaround.
You can upload pdfs somewhere else on the internet and link to them in your blog.
The O365 OneDrive provide by Glow is a good place to do this. After uploading a PDF to one drive you can ‘share’ it. Make it public and copy the link. In the blog post you want to add the pdf to you can, instead of uploading the file, link directly to it like this: Download Test PDF
