If you’re wondering what the ‘Disable Code Block Encoding’ option found in Theme Options > Advanced tab does, please continue reading below.
Essentially, any content within a Code Block element is encoded. This stops WordPress from getting it’s hands on the code and inserting <p> tags, line breaks and any other formatting changes that it likes to make to content inside the editor. By default, Avada takes the content and converts it into a base64 string so that it can be decoded when the page is rendered. This way it will come out on the page the same as it was inserted into the Code Block.
If you choose to enable the ‘Disable Code Blocking Encoding’ option located in Theme Options > Advanced, your Code Block elements essentially become a Text Block element and WordPress will have it’s way with the content inside. Please view below for a sample Google Analytics code inside a Code Block that has encoding enabled and disabled.
If you have the ‘Disable Code Block Encoding’ option unchecked (Encoding Enabled), then your code will be inserted as intended and function correctly. View screenshot here.
