Wordpress plug-in and editing the content area.

When I tried the Scrollkit plug-in for Wordpress, I was surprised that it overwrote the whole page, eliminating the header, footer, menu, etc. By default, Scrollkit bypasses the Wordpress edit screen entirely. I think that in many cases it would be much more useful if Scrollkit could be used IN the Wordpress page edit screen, to provide true WYSIWIG editing of the page content area without changing the entire page structure.

There is a workaround way to do that, without using the plug-in, by making a scroll, viewing the code, and copy/pasting the body <div> section into the Wordpress text editor. If the powers-that-be at Scrollkit are reading this, I hope they will consider adding this functionality to the Wordpress plug-in version of Scrollkit.

By the way, Rudy, I tried the method of copy/pasting in WP but my scroll is maybe too complex, there is video and a lot of images (http://www.scrollkit.com/s/6uxxBmr) : it doesn't work. I get an Internal Server Error 500...

Julie, I am still experimenting with this, so I tried inserting your code on a page of my test site, and it does work! http://2014.hotrodtrading.com/portugal/. Parts of it are too wide to fit, but it looks like it's all there, including video. By the way, the Scrollkit plug-in is installed on the site, but I don't know if that is relevant, because on that page I did not check the box that says 'make this page a scroll'. Keep me posted, Rudy.

Oh! Thank you so much! I have also the plugin with the box unchecked. Must have selected the wrong part of the 'body' code… Did you paste all the code between 'body' and '/body'?

Essentially, but without the 'body' tags themselves. There is a <div> within the body, and if you view the code on my page, you will see that I started with <div id='skrollr-body'>, and ended with the </div> tag that follows the line 'tous les articles au Portugal'.

Sorry, I put some html in my answer and now I see that it did not show up. The missing parts above are 'div' tags. It should read: There is a div within the scroll body, and if you view the code on my page, you will see that I started with 'div id scroller body', and ended with the 'div' tag that follows the line 'tous les articles au Portugal'.

Thank you very much Rudy! It seems I did everything like you but unfortunately it doesn't work. Maybe my WP theme or other plugins are not compatible…

It's probably something like that. I have sent you a separate e-mail with some more details that you may find useful.
