Engine does not recognize markup

This is the second time I have used blogengine.net for a blog app. The first one works great. However, when I use any extensions that use the [] format for markup they are not recognized. I have tried using the more and mp3 markup extensions and it does not work at all. Any idea what would cause this?

Ok I now know that this is theme specific. What could be missing that is not pushing the javascript for these extensions into what I guess would be the header section of the post page, etc.

Did you figure out what the issue was? I'm having the same troubles with my theme!

I do not think that is a theme specific, of course i try with all themes in BE 1.3 and all works well.

I have a problem using more, because the enterily post was in a big div tag, so all pages was crazy when extensions render the link. My solution was to split the big div in two like this:
<div align="justify">
<div align="justify">

check this list:
1) What theme are you using?
2) Do you have the extensions .cs file?
3) Do you enable this extensions?

Let me know what happen

thanks for the post - back. My problem is that I have used 'standard' theme, and my extensions all work fine. I made my own theme, dropped it into the 'themes folder'. When I switch themes to my new one, everything changes, but the extensions don't 'work' -- e.g., they just come out as more or silverlight: --- I know it is theme specific since the extensions work under the 'standard'

I was wondering what in the theme 'triggers' the replacement, and then I could dig into my custom theme to figure out what I didn't put in...

Ok, review your theme code

Here is another guess:

Try to view your post in FireFox having the FireBug debugging Add-On installed. Look for any kind of error that FireBug reports. I guess that you have some kind of JavaScript error that prevent the html to be rendered correclty.

By the way, if you use the mp3 player and the silverlight extensions at the same time then I know what the javascript error is: Both extensions are trying to load a javascript file called player.js. The first one wins and the second extension will throw some script errors. I fixed this in my setup by renaming one of the scripts to avoid the name clash.
