Custom module doesn't work, messing up all page, messing up editor

Joomla Asked by Viktoriia Shestak on September 5, 2021

I am using Joomla! 3.7.5 and JA Builder. I’m trying to create a block with custom module. Once I create it, paste code and assign position, then in page editor add block with widget – position and publish it – all is looking good.

My issue comes when I go again into editing mode – all I see are the images used in the module filling the whole page and nothing else. I click publish (hoping all will return to its rightful place, but alas I see that the whole page is messed up: header and footer, all content misaligned, and some of the images got big.

I’m not sure how to solve it. I tried a lot of stuff with no good result yet. Please advise if anyone has faced a similar occurrence.

One Answer

After painstakingly retabbing your posted code from my phone, it appears your code has been wrapped in a <div></div> tag. Sometimes editors automate this to generate valid html, however, in your case, it has broken your code.

I recommend manually removing the leading <div>and trailing </div> to return things to normal.

Additionally, I find the backticks around your <svg> tags a little concerning -- I feel like they should be single quotes (apostrophes).
