(bug?) Page must begin with image/text/table of contents?

Hi, I'm not sure if I've discovered a bug here of if I'm missing something, but when I try and publish this article like this:

I get an error saying that the first part of an article must be either a table of contents, text or an image, yet my other article: (live version here)

Published perfectly fine without having TOC/text/image modules first...

I know it could be easily fixed, but I like the idea of having a video first and more importantly I'm wondering if my brain's gone to mush and I'm missing something blatant!

Thanks!

Yeah, that is strange. It might be a while before you get an answer though ;-) In the meantime, you can try writing a line of text or something and then embed the video right afterwards. But I'm sure you have thought of that and want to know what the deal is, bug or new thing.

Well, I found the "bug". If you publish the article first with text then move the youtube video to the top, it saves without a problem - and that's what I did with the other article too, I added the video in at a later point!

I'll happily change it around if there's a reason why videos etc aren't allowed at the beginning of pages, though!

I know this isn't a fix (and am a bit embarrassed to admit it) but I've had that happen a few times when my first text module is 1/2 page and an image, etc. is the other 1/2 page. It was demanding all text. So what I did was published it the way it was insisting...then immediately edited page my way, and it was fine.

Again...not an answer but it was so infrequent I never looked into it...just found a back door via "edit" after publish.

Paul,

Your post just came up while I was writing mine...so disregard mine because that was what I was going to tell you...

Guess it is time to learn the "why" when Wizzley Team chimes in.

Sorry to hear that, for a while, you found yourself in some kind of 'borderland limbo', Paul.  Smile

The purpose of this feature is to encourage more useful text info (or original images) at the beginning of an article (above the fold). It may look spammy if you start right away with your advertisements.

Seasoned writers (like you guys) know how important it is to create a good user experience. If you think that a video should be placed right after the intro, go ahead and use that little trick with changing the module sequence back after publishing.

Haha, I'd love to see a crossover between those two games! That would be brilliant! Tongue Out
