Custom HTML block in comments

P2 has two very interesting blocks for professional use, one is the PDF block, and the other is the Custom HTML block. The first can be used both in the initial post of a topic and in the comments; the second can only be in the initial post.

In order to use storage capacity more rationally, I would like to ask that the use of the Custom HTML block was also possible in the comments, because, with it, it is possible to share heavier documents hosted on Google Drive (or even files with other media, such as audio).


Importing XML

Hi @jonburke, I was trying the export/import tool of P2 and I got stuck somehow on my first try. This is more of a suggestion on the message/workflow when importing. Here are the steps I took:

  1. Opened Import Tool.
  2. Clicked on WordPress.
  3. Clicked the link “upload it to import content.”
  4. Browsed for the XML file and got this window below. It says that “Please reassign the authors of the imported items….”. At this point I don’t have the same authors in the new P2 and not enough new users to assign to. I just chose my name on the dropdown that corresponds to Elbert Campos as author from the original site. I left the other 2 unassigned. I clicked “Start import” button. No error message at all or warning.

5. I got this window saying “Success! File Uploaded”. At this point, I thought that the posts/pages/comments were already imported because of the message “Success!”. Though I was curious why the “Cancel” button below instead of Done or Go back to menu.

6. Stuck….. I checked posts and pages, I got nothing.

My second try was a success because this time, I reassigned all authors and got a new window import in progress. May I suggest a message saying that “You MUST reassign authors before importing”. Or if a user clicked the “Start import” button without reassigning the authors, there should be a pop-up message saying “Please reassign authors”.

LaTeX in posts?

Long-time WordPress user, currently using WordPress with the P2 plugin to manage teaching and research projects in the mathematics department at a medium-sized university.

The (apparent) inability to embed LaTeX snippets into posts and comments on here is a real hindrance to the kind of discussions we have. If LaTeX support isn’t already on the to-do list for this project, might I request it be added?


Distro List

Hello @jonburke , since P2 is something that we can use more often than email, can we add a distro list feature when using @mentions? So if I’m to address/notify new hires, I can use something like @newhires then it will notify newly hired people. This @newhire should be fully customizable like adding/removing members from that list. This could also work when addressing a certain department like @hrteam @marketing @sales.

Thanks a lot.
