RM 1.2 Resource Tagging, New Reviews and More

Discussion in 'Have You Seen...?' started by Mike, Jul 16, 2015.

    Hot on the heels of our XenForo Media Gallery 1.1 announcement, we are now also ready to show what's coming in XenForo Resource Manager 1.2.

    Resource Manager 1.2, like Media Gallery 1.1, will require XenForo 1.5.

    Resource tagging
    As we mentioned in the thread tagging announcement, tagging support would be coming to our official add-ons. Resource tagging thus works very similarly to thread tagging.

    Tags can be displayed at the top:

    Or at the bottom:

    When tags are at the top, they will be displayed on all parts of the resource (other than in the discussion thread). When tags are at the bottom, they will only be displayed on the overview tab.

    Editing is otherwise identical to thread tags.

    Latest reviews
    You may now display the latest reviews in a sidebar block on the main resource list page:

    This can also lead to a separate latest reviews page to allow access to more than just the last few reviews:

    New resources block
    The newest resources (by last update) can now be displayed on the forum list page in a sidebar block, like the standard "new posts" and "new profile posts" blocks:


    We have also added a resources tab to the "find new" system to make it easier to see the latest resources. This essentially just matches the resource list shown on the resource index page when sorting by the latest updates.

    Default sort order option
    The default sort order for the resource index and category overview pages can now be changed:


    Sorting tab changes
    Like the media gallery, we have collapsed the sort options in on the resource list pages into a menu:


    This provides a more consistent display across devices, particularly moving the content up the page on smaller devices. This also allows us to add more sorting options without running into space constraints, so we have added support for sorting by resource titles.

    Mentions in resources and updates
    Previously, we did not support for @ mentions in resources and resource updates. This has now changed. For example, you can now thank someone for their contribution when posting an update and have them receive an alert. (Note that, like elsewhere in XenForo, alerts will not be sent when editing a resource or an update.)

    Author alerts
    The ability to send an alert to a content author when a moderator takes action against their content has been incredibly useful, so we're expanding to include that in resources.


    Alerts can be sent when editing or deleting a resource, resource update or review. An alert can also be sent when reassigning a resource; this alert will be sent to the current and new owners.

    That's what's coming in XenForo Resource Manager 1.2. We'll be installing it here soon. Once we're happy with how it's going, we'll follow it up with a beta for more extended testing. :)

    I think you mean bottom there, not top.

    @Jeremy Oh, I think the forum can do this - why not the RM... So I must hope of the next release, or the next next release... :(

    See Mike's post above. It is possible in RM 1.2 :)

    As a suggestion for consistency, it would be *great* the possibility to have Newest resources in the forum list like the Newest media. Resources are the main items in my forum since I use resources for advertising products.

    Does that mean that the newest resources can appear as a block in top of the forum list? like in "Show Recent Media on Forum List". I crave for this.

    As it states:
    Anything else would require customisation/development.

    I'm trying to decide If I'll still need the BD Tagme add on once RM and XFMG both support user tagging ... is this an another mod we can uninstall when these two releases come along? Only deficit I will actually miss is the ability to tag groups.

    XFMG already supports user tagging mentions in comments but I don't think that TagMe supports email alerts for this (I tested this but didn't get an email from a mention in a media comment).

    TagMe really just adds email alerts for mentions in posts and profile posts and the use of group tags. If you don't need these then you can remove the add-on.

    Its possible to display the featured resources also in other sortings? In sorting by title eg? Would be nice, and nicer if. ;)

    There are no new options related to featured resources.
