Web Pages Module Released

Postby shannah » Tue Jun 17, 2008 2:20 pm

I have created and released a drop-in web pages module for use in any Xataface application that adds the notion of static web pages to your application. All you have to do is create a table in MySQL (as defined in the readme file) and drop the module into your application's 'tables' directory and you'll be able to add/edit web pages for your application.

You can download the module here.

Read the readme file here.

Looks interesting ...

but how do you get just the web page to display i.e. without all the actions etc.?

I suspect this is answered by my other query today, but there may be another option for this?

Many thanks

Check out the readme file. The module comes with an action to display the page. The readme file also shows a quick example of how to use mod_rewrite to make the pages show up with nice urls just like in LCMS.

I had already done that

and just checked again. What I get is the page, but with all the standard actions etc. which allows me to browse and edit the page.

What I was looking for, was to have the page appear without that, i.e. as a web page with just the application header and the tabs for the other tables.

I suppose the answer is back to permissions?

Many thanks

OK.. one solution is to make a small mod to the pages/page.html template. It currently looks like:
Code: Select all
...
{fill_slot name="main_section"}
      ...
{/fill_slot}
...


Change the slot name to "main_column". This will get rid of all that stuff.
e.g.
Code: Select all
...
{fill_slot name="main_column"}
      ...
{/fill_slot}
...
