Vimeo issue

Have installed vimeo field type (v11)

The perch region in the CMS screens is not saving the data I enter ..... Am I entering the wrong data ? I entered

And so not surprisingly the video doesn't display on the page

My template content has this as the perch content tag

<perch:content id="VimeoVideo" type="vimeo" label="Vimeo Video Link" output="embed" width="300" />

I have a similar Youtube config, and that works fine from the same template page.

Am I misunderstanding what needs to be entered into the vimeo content piece, or am I using the wrong vimeo parameters ?

Have got it working by adding a Code Block to another page and inserting the full source code as below. But that's not the user-friendly content editing I want to achieve. So still need to resolve why the Vimeo field content is not saving



<div class="video"> <div class="vimeo"> <iframe src="" width="554" height="311" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen><img src="/img/SaladWebVideoEndFrame_Small.jpg"></iframe> </div> </div>

What do you mean by not saving?

I enter the relevant content into the field in the Region, e.g. [label] Vimeo Video Link [user input field] and then press Save.
The perch cms page refreshes and gives the usual success message : [tick] Content successfully updated

But the field in the region which has just received user input remains blank, which seems to indicate not saved.

{Not yet worked out how to insert a screengrab}

Hmm, that sounds like an issue. Does it make a difference if you use an https:// URL and not https:// ?
