glz_crumbs, simple breadcrumbs plugin

glz_crumbs 0.3.1 is out.

glz_vars is a nifty breadcrumbs plugin outputting parent location(s) as links and current location as plain text – can count live articles as well.

  • relies on glz_vars
  • can display how many live articles are filed under a certain Section, Category or even the whole site
  • if article has Category2 specified, it will display it
  • performance improvement (more db friendly – glz_vars reduces the load directly proportional to the glz_ plugins in use)
  • added showcat1, showcat2 and showarticle support

Enjoy and don’t forget to report any bugs you might encounter ; ).

Cheers, Gerhard.

Re: glz_crumbs, simple breadcrumbs plugin

It shows “txp_home” alone, if I’m on the frontpage, “txp_home >”, if in a section article_list and “txp_home > > article_title”, if on a individual article, but it doesn’t show the section names.

The source code on an individual article page outputs <code><a href=“http://localhost” title=“txp_home home page”>mydomain.ch</a> &gt; <a href=“http://localhost/sectionname” title=“title comes here”></a> &gt; First Post</code>

I have txp 1.0rc3 from 29 april 2005 and upm_section_title v.0.4.1

Re: glz_crumbs, simple breadcrumbs plugin

Hi tranquilo,

thanks for highlighting the first bugs :P.

Well, first of all, you need to set up a name for the site. Go to Admin and under Preferences you will find Site name. Once that is done, txp_home will be replaced with whatever you inserted @ Site name.

I don’t remember which section First post is assigned to, but I have a feeling that you might have highlited a bug in my plugin. I will look into it later on and roll out v 0.1.1 asap.

No, sorry. There is no bug. If I remember right, First post is assigned to article section. I have tested it on my end and it works fine: Home > Article > First post.

Cheers, Gerhard.

Re: glz_crumbs, simple breadcrumbs plugin

I have set a name for the homepage and it displays that name. I also have asigned a specific section to the article “First post” (the code I posted was generalized). My only problem is that the section name is not displayed. I guess my problem is the upm_section_title plugin and not your plugin, as <code><txp:upm_section_title /></code> doesn’t output anything, either.

Re: glz_crumbs, simple breadcrumbs plugin

Well tranquilo, even if you don’t set a Site name, v 0.1.1 will make it Home by default : ).

As far as <em>upm_section_title()</em> is concerned, it would be helpful if you could have a look in your Apache error_log. Furthermore, it would be advisable if you could post the error message(s) related to upm_section_title() e.g. <code>[Fri Jul 1 18:06:57 2005] [error] PHP Warning: Missing argument 1 for upm_section_title() in /Library/WebServer/Documents/assetsos/new/textpattern/lib/txplib_misc.php(379) : eval()’d code on line 1</code> in upm_section_title thread . Mary will be able to help you best because it’s her plugin.

OK mate, take care and have fun with TXP ; ).

Re: glz_crumbs, simple breadcrumbs plugin

Happy that you’re finding this plugin useful Terry ; ). v 0.2 should be out fairly soon. I want to release it together with glz_2dnav which basically outputs sections on x-axis and categories on y-axis. I have a local version working already, just need to tidy it up a bit and write the help part.

Btw, I am sure that I came across your website before because I distinctly remember that vibe9 name ; ).

Keep up the good work, Gerhard.

Re: glz_crumbs, simple breadcrumbs plugin

The new v 0.2 is out. Just when linking to TXP’s download page did I realize that RC05 is out. I am sorry but I simply don’t have the time to test it on this version as well. I can only hope that it works fine on RC05…

Sorry guys for not having glz_2dnav available as of yet, but I think that I will keep it just for personal use until it becomes more robust. I simply don’t feel that it carries enough value to be released within the community. @ the minute it’s not much more advanced than ako_nav.

A big cheer for everyone that contributes to TXP (be it in small or big ways) ; ), Gerhard.

Re: glz_crumbs, simple breadcrumbs plugin

Any news on when v 0.3 might be out?

It’s already a cool plug-in, and it’d be great to get even cooler.

I need it for the category2 linking – for a category crazy colleague

cheers
