Newbie here comparing Softr out to some of the no-code / low-code competitors. I am simply trying to have a list of media elements that people can add to that includes a block for embedding or a link with the common code that most media platforms allow as their “Share” function.
Either Softr or Airtable, or the integration between them, is causing the
Example: in Youtube click “Share” → “Embed” you will get code such as the following:
When I save this to an Airtable long text column (with Rich Text turned on or off), I get the following in the column, which when returned back to the list is not a valid Embed Code:
<iframe width=“560” height=“315” src=“YouTube” title=“YouTube video player” frameborder=“0” allow=“accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture; web-share” allowfullscreen></iframe>
So all of the opening ‘<’ have changed to escape characters.
I have tried all types of fields in the Actions - Add Record section of the List (Text, Long Text, Rich Text), they all get the same result.
If I copy/paste the embed code directly into the Airtable column the code is correct, so it is happening either in Softr or in the conversation with Airtable.
