Re: adi_matrix – Multi-article update tabs

By the way you do not have to work on it until your family situation sorts it self out. My reports here were just to inform you. There is no hurry or immediate need on my side.

Re: adi_matrix – Multi-article update tabs

I just thought of posting here to confirm that the beta does work and that the error appeared as I embarrassingly did not state a name for the matrix. So for those who are migrating to txp v4.6, this excellent very useful plugin can still be part of the arsenal.

Re: adi_matrix – Multi-article update tabs

Just a report. I had problems with the 2.0 version installed on txp 4.6.2, but installing the beta over it has now made those problems go away. Thank you for putting this up, Adi.

Re: adi_matrix – Multi-article update tabs

Possible feature consideration to this awesome plugin: the ability to add a new article to the matrix, e.g. add a link near the Title somewhere to add a new article.

This may have to be a two-pronged approach:

  1. If the matrix contains articles from a single section, a new row could open up directly in the matrix. Type the details in the matrix fields, then when you save, it does an update on all the rows except the new ones, which get inserted (or just do an upsert on the lot).
  2. If the matrix is from multiple sections, either a) prompt for the section in the new row OR add an icon indicating this link will direct you to the Write panel. Bonus points if the article can be pre-filled with any matrix criteria (such as category).

Use case: I’m helping someone update a site and am considering a matrix for the stock list. One article for each product. So each day, the guy visits his stock matrix and updates the custom fields (e.g. price changes, whether an item has been sold that day, etc). But if new stock has come in, he needs to be able to quickly add a new product to the ‘stock’ section and have it appear in the matrix. Make, model, price, availability, …

Is this doable? Or desirable for other users of the plugin? Or is this too narrow and something that should be done as a companion plugin? If so, could you please add some hooks in the plugin so that I can add something like that? Thanks in advance for your thoughts on this.

Re: adi_matrix – Multi-article update tabs

I find that interesting too.
What would be nice too is next to each article the list of smd_tags associate, to check, add or especially delete bulk.

If adi puts some callback hooks in the plugin in some cunning places, this might be achievable from the smd_tags plugin.

If you set Publish to Yes in the matrix config, don’t you get a blank row at the bottom of the matrix list for adding a new article?

Hah! RTFM. Thank you, kind sir. That’ll do nicely.
