--- oooh I'm so excited!
The way Jon has interpreted it as a node is remarkably elegant.
The addon has now been added to the Resource Manager. This thread remains useful as the ROADMAP. This first post is updated with each additional stage completed.
STAGE 1 PLUS editor users/ usergroups
has now been released as a free addon.
STAGE TWO is largely complete
and has been released.
This first post has Features/ Roadmap.
2nd post has screenshots.
FEATURES OF THE LIBRARY
Underlined Bold = ready for others to use in latest addon.
Underlined = already done, testing on my site.
STAGE ONE - Completed Sat 28 Jan.
- Create a Library node. Has node tree position, visibe/ hidden, permissions, integrated What's On etc
- Create Article as child of this Library node.
- Article edit frontend bbcode.
~ Directory or Index page to list contents. This is only for THIS Library node. A coordinated directory index of all Library nodes, if multiple nodes are creates, to come later.
- Multiple page Articles.
SAT JAN 28 Stage 1 is now complete on my site.
for multiple page article example see www.housemorgain.co.uk/circle/libraries/library-power.91/
STAGE TWO Started Fri Feb 10. Completed Thurs Feb 16.
~ User/ Usergroup Editors. Display author userbit.
~ Upload images or Attachments direct.
Additionally an image or attachment can be uploaded, and re-used for that Article.
Image wrap - there is another addon for this (coderich)
LIBRARY INDEX PAGES
~ A Library can now have other Libraries as children. This makes it possible to create a Library index or directory page, with preview explanatory text for each. An index or directory could be for the whole collection of site Libraries, or for a subsection category of Libraries.
~ EXTRA! Libraries now integrate with Nodes-As-Tabs so a Library can appear as a tab on the navbar, together with its children Libraries on the secondary bar. This was not planned originally but added as a bonus!
~ More compatibility with several other addons.
TO BE COMPLETED
- Ordering of the Articles as listed on a Library list of its contents. Date/ A-Z/ Priority at top/ Manual by numbering. Option to Show/ Hide.
~ Priority display of Latest additions. Total no. of items in this Library. No. of views.
~ Discussion option connected to an Article. This will be a forum thread. It duplicates underneath the Article. Visitors can discover the same discussion either as a forum thread, or by reading the Article.
INTEGRATION WHAT'S NEW
- What's New display of new items in the Library/ Libraries.
Here endeth the free version
fully paid by myself.
Note that Jon of Waindigo will do more custom work for you
as well as continuing development with my requests as below.STAGE THREE
~ Different kinds of Articles/ Pages with different fields. Types.
... and a lot more exciting aspects to that as an admin level design features.
~ Footnotes. Bibliography.
~ Glossary linking on keywords.
STAGE FOUR -CMS design.
Volunteers are invited for a team of subscribers to help fund a CMS.
This would draw upon the resources of both Forums and the Library
to display in front page blocks.
Plus html blocks and external snippet blocks like the Earth Moon one on my site.
So far on the CMS project we have:
Principia $40 -50.
With grateful thanks to Jon of Waindigo for finally getting me here so my dreams come true.
