stm_article_order: Arbitrary sort order for your articles

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

  • This plugin has been improved by Uli. To get a read about his changes see post #59.
  • springworks has added a separate panel for hiding any desired section. (Works for TXP 4.5+) His version, which is the most recent one ATM and incorporates all previous amendments, can be found here.

Original post

With my new Textpattern plugin you can manipulate the order of your articles and put them in different sections – by simply using Drag & Drop!

Installation

You should use at least Textpattern 4.0.5 for working with this plugin.

After activating the plugin, you will see a new admin tab at “Presentation » Article Order”. Using this tool, you can manipulate the navigation of your website with ease!

As a last step of the installation you’ll have to add the follwing attribute to your txp:article tag:

<txp:article sort="position asc" />

For “non-blog-sites” I also recommend the rdt_dynamenus plugin. Using this, you should add the following attribute:

<txp:rdt_article_menu sortby="position" sortdir="asc" />

No, I don’t think this first version has any “support” for categories…

This is very useful, takes the hassle out of editing the time stamps when certain articles have to appear in a specific order.

Good job.

Re: stm_article_order: Arbitrary sort order for your articles

This plugin is g-r-e-a-t!!! Why don’t include some kind of pagination in the next releases? I’ve got more nearly 5.000 articles on one of my sites: i didn’t test the plugin there but i fear it would take soooo long to load…

Re: stm_article_order: Arbitrary sort order for your articles

Hi monsta,

a question: I would like that and plugin used tag ol instead of ul for #navigation, I have modified plugin but I have not obtained good results. ¿It’s possible?

Great plugin, thanks.

Re: stm_article_order: Arbitrary sort order for your articles

Fantastic plugin. The only problem I’ve experienced is that the arrows shown next to section names in screenshots show up as question marks for me. Some kind of minor problem with character encoding, perhaps?

Vittorio also makes a good point. Although I haven’t tried this with anything close to 5000 articles, on a site with approx. 100 articles its already getting a little awkward to use.

This plugin isn’t directly responsible for creating navigation, only for giving you a new way to sort articles. If you’re having trouble with the rdt_dynamenus plugin that this plugin’s author recommended, you might try asking your question in the rdt_dynamenus forum thread.
