Re: rah_wrach: select a section before writing an article

By default the prompt presents all sections, and doesn’t hide the editor’s section field. This gives you access to any section from the prompt itself.

The prompt also offers an option to set which sections are included in the prompt. When this setting is used, the prompt only lists those sections. If you create a new section, you will also have to update that setting in Advanced Preferences if you wish that new section to be included in the prompt.

Re: rah_wrach: select a section before writing an article

Hi Jukka,

I’ve modified the plugin and styling for a particular project (see screenshot image below). The “Edit Existing” button used to be the article count and Create New is self-explanatory.

Screenshot

Anyway, some of the sections are essentially “static” and should always only consist of one article. I was wondering if you might offer some guidance on how to either add another field in the rah_wrach prefs on the admin side where one can list sections that should only include an “Edit Existing” (or article count) button, i.e. exclude the link to create a new article for those sections on the rah_wrach main page? I guess if one were to take it further for these special single article sections, it would be cool for the “Edit Existing” button (or count of “1” button) to take the user directly to edit that single article in the write tab, instead of going to an article list of one. Would love to know your thoughts on this feature request. If others might find it useful and how involved it might be.

Thanks!

Support for the remora theme:

			<style type="text/css">
				.txp-footer{clear:both}
				#rah_wrach{
					width:98%;
					min-width:80em;
					margin:0 3%
				}
				#rah_wrach .txp-grid-cell{
					float:left;
					width:33%;
					max-width:33% !important;
					height:9em;
					margin:0 .1em .5em .1em;
					padding:.5em;
					border:1px solid #ddd
				}
				#rah_wrach .txp-grid-cell .success,
				#rah_wrach .txp-grid-cell .page{cursor:help}
				#rah_wrach .information{
					padding:0 .5em;
					font-size:1.19em !important
				}
				#rah_wrach .txp-grid-cell hr{
					height:1px;
					background-color:#eee;

Re: rah_wrach: select a section before writing an article

Out of the box rah_wrach supports and works with all three core themes, including Remora. Since documented core UI patterns and widgets are deployed, the interface structurally looks familiar across the board while inheriting the look and feel of the theme.

I suppose those styles are for the modification you were showing off previously in the Textpattern 4.5.0’s release thread. Those styles don’t match the markup structure rah_wrach uses.

Hi Jukka ;)

Thanks for your reply.
My TXP back-end displays this in the footer: “Textpattern CMS · 4.5.2”.

Re: rah_wrach: select a section before writing an article

Not sure about the relevance. All three core themes fulfill same UI patterns. Rah_wrach isn’t built for specific theme or for specific look, but using documented UI widgets and patterns. Thus it fits and works with any theme, as long as its up to date, including core ones, whether it be Classic, Hive or Remora (links point to screenshots taken from each of the themes).

Since those styles aren’t for vanilla rah_wrach (they do use classes and elements that aren’t in rah_wrach), the issues could either arise from any modifications you have done, or you might not haven’t updated your copy of Remora theme. Diagnostics panel doesn’t check themes.

Re: rah_wrach: select a section before writing an article

Hi Jukka ;)

Maybe you could add a tooltip for the article count link (“See all articles”) and an another one for the section name link (“Add a new article”).

French translations: “Voir tous les articles” and “Ajouter un article”.

Re: rah_wrach: select a section before writing an article

I really like this idea. For those that don’t own, or participate in, a collaborative site, they probably wouldn’t see the need for this. But for collaborative authoring, and especially where structured workflows are involved or trying to onboard new Txp users, this is a subtle but excellent idea.

I never knew this plugin existed. It’s the little ones like this that I’m a big fan of — the admin-side ones — plugins that keep making the UI experience better, less cognitive overhead.
