I also find it annoying
yeah it sucks as hell
We need a checkbox after the button like to stay after saving - or even better save using AJAX... but the admin is the very last part in the refactoring process - sorry the only way to speed things up is to contribute code :-)
I'd argue that the default behaviour should be to stay on the article after save/cancel. I see no reason to go to the article list. After an edit, who would not want to see the result of their edit? I'd really like this one fixed asap, in 2.2.0, as it's not something I can hack myself, so how much of a $donation would it require?
Something like that? It's just a Firebug concept
Gary Aylward wrote some great tuts about modules, his webpage is down atm so please use Google Cache. cache:http://garya.org.uk/software/redaxscript/modules-tutorial-part-1 cache:http://garya.org.uk/software/redaxscript/modules-tutorial-part-2 cache:http://garya.org.uk/software/redaxscript/modules-tutorial-part-3 cache:http://garya.org.uk/software/redaxscript/modules-tutorial-part-4
Thanks Henry, I've studied Gary's tutorials and they're excellent, so I can create modules now and that's all fine. However, I have a project that requires the article to be manipulated prior to display, and in a more complex way than can be achieved by data insertion using <function>...</function>. So my module needs access to the article output prior to display. In MediaWiki I'd use a hook such as "ParserAfterTidy" which provides direct access to the $text variable containing the article's HTML. So anything changed in $text will be displayed. Is something possible in Redaxscript? It looks like the equivalent to MediaWiki's $text in Redaxscript is $output in "contents.php" but I can't see how to hook into it to manipulate it from within a module.
you cannot manipulate the output rendering with the old codebase, but maby we provide $content->getContent() in 2.3.0
Thanks Henry, $content->getContent() would be very useful, ideally referencing the parsed article ready for rendering. In the meantime I think I can hack what I need to do by adding a function call to contents.php line 121 after hook('article_end'). But could you just explain the purpose of the statement ".hook('article_end')" on line 120? ...as this is where I'd expect the call to an article_end function to include some data, perhaps $output. But I'm used to using MediaWiki where hooks include the data to be manipulated, and the term 'hook' may mean something completely different in Redaxscript? ...hope I'm making sense!
hooks in redaxscript include function calls and not data :-)
Thanks Henry, much appreciated. I had to set the publish state to 'unpublished' to get this to work, but I guess that makes sense as its now specifically called via the template rather than through the extras mechanism. I'm happy with that, and learnt a lot about RS in the process! ...however, I still think it would be logical, via the admin console, to be able to show an extra for all articles in a specific category. Or even include categories in the extras->customize->articles dropdown so multiple pages can share the same extra. For example, all news articles could have an extra to join a mailing list or link to an archive, all easily configured in admin rather than php. Anyone else have a view on this?
The big question is... what is the behaviour most people like to have. It's not a big task to change the codebase to meet your needs.
I'd certainly find that behaviour useful. Can I suggest adding a new extras->customize option called "Articles in category" with a dropdown with all the categories? ...but only if others would find this useful too - any takers out there?
we are on feature freeze because of codebase refactoring, we can only change the behaviour atm.
no, but next time
Not yet :(
Sad, it took us months to develop it - maby the previous release was too good, therefore people are lazy on upgrading their website? :-)
The point is I have no time... Can not wait to try it! I have a flat UI concept in mind and I would like to see it working ASAP
very good :)
Not a single buy yet, whats wrong?
This was frustrating, there was not a single one who wants to give something back by ordering a shirt.
PHP 5.3 was released June 2009 and PHP 5.2 has not been updated since January 2011. If your webhost is still using 5.2, change your host!
"PHP performance also continues to get better with every release. PHP 5.3 was ~20% faster than 5.2, and 5.4 showed a 20-40% improvement over 5.3. Then with PHP 5.5 we got a bundled opcode cache, which has a dramatic positive impact on PHP’s out of the box performance, and removes the necessity of installing APC." http://www.acquia.com/blog/php-performance-fast-enough-and-improving-jonathan-klein
Is this software friendly to those with little web design experience?
I cannot confirm, the demo works for me...
You clicked on "try it now" and got pushed to the demo site's administration. Whats your definition of "doesn't work"?
maybe it doesn't install it for him right away :)
Hello, why does the installation fail? did it return the green colored success message? did the installation wizard write to your config? is the salt inside your config.php empty?
it did return green message
it did write to config.php and salt is not empty (i did not modifed config.php by hand)
the passwords are salted, what means it does create a hash from the salt + your password input and is testing again the hash stored in the settings table. in other words, you have to empty the salt to make admin / admin work or use the domain.com/reminder to create a new password.
it would be nice to test the installation wizard on another webspace if you have the time - other users may profit from that
