Re: cbe_helpful: Visitors can rate articles (based on wlk_helpful)

[just] display the separate yes and no numbers in an article-list context

Hey, that’s a good idea !

How would you like it:

(a) Single tag: <txp:cbe_helpful link="0" /> (attribute link or anything else you prefer)

(b) Container tag:

<txp:cbe_helpful>
  <txp:cbe_helpful_yes link="0" />
  <txp:cbe_helpful_no  link="0" />
</txp:cbe_helpful>

(c) Container tag, 2nd version:

<txp:cbe_helpful link="0">
  <txp:cbe_helpful_yes />
  <txp:cbe_helpful_no  />
</txp:cbe_helpful>

Which one between (b) and (c) seems the most usable ?

Re: cbe_helpful: Visitors can rate articles (based on wlk_helpful)

Option © looks good to me although there is potentially another snag!

What if I need to use different labels in the list than in the individual article context. At the moment the labels are set in the preferences. Would it be possible to override these with a label attribute too?

(sorry!)

No problem, I can add it too :)

The attribute label

  • would be available in all circumstances, i.e. also when the vote is available
  • will affect cbe_helpful_yes, cbe_helpful_no and cbe_helpful_score cbe_helpful_total_votes (I think it won’t harm)

Does it sound good ?

I think that’s ok. It just gives us more options if we want to have the different labels set in different forms rather than the preferences.

If the label attribute is unset then I’d expect it to default to the one set in the preferences. If the attribute label=”“ is present then could it suppress the label altogether?

Right. There is no functionality lost, it even adds new ones.

As usual, Sir :)
But I will let you explicitly suppress the default label for each tag (_yes, _no, _score) because the combination <txp:cbe_helpful label="" /> already exists and because I can’t decide for you if you want to suppress for _yes and _no and _score, or _yes and _no or _score.

If any new idea comes, it is still time.

Yep, that makes total sense to me! No other ideas at the moment – these normally come as I try to use plugins in different scenarios.

Many thanks for the help. It’s appreciated.

Re: cbe_helpful: Visitors can rate articles (based on wlk_helpful)

Sorry, my mistake: label will affect _total_votes too (instead of _score).
But for the sake of consistency I will add a label attribute to _score.

Re: cbe_helpful: Visitors can rate articles (based on wlk_helpful)

Hi :-)

I want do show this Plugin only in a special section (cats) – on a single page.

That does not seem to be working. It works on the default section – single page, not in the section cats.
What can I do?!

Re: cbe_helpful: Visitors can rate articles (based on wlk_helpful)

Hello second question!?

my Code:

<txp:cbe_helpful wraptag="ul">
<p><txp:cbe_helpful_score /> Mensch(en) gefällt der Artikel!Dir auch?<br />
 <txp:cbe_helpful_yes class="green" />
 <txp:cbe_helpful_no class="red" />
</p>
</txp:cbe_helpful>

It works, but the html output is not valide, missing <li>

<ul class="helpfulrater"><li style="display:none;" class="thisid">2076</li><li style="display:none;" class="unit">simple</li>
<p><span><span title="">2</span></span> Mensch(en) gefällt der Artikel!Dir auch?<br>
 <span class=" green">2</span>
 <span class=" red">0</span>
</p>
</ul>

Can someone help me?
