Re: Content block default not working

Just realized that one downside of that workaround is that the editor will not notice that there is default text when in the editor. Or be able to start with the default text and make small adjustments.

Re: Content block default not working

@chrisbt: That looks like a good workaround while the bug is being worked out. I will try it out and report back.

Thanks!

Re: Content block default not working

@Rolf - the problem is not with using the variable that is assigned in the content block. It is that the "default" parameter is not working - it does not pull in the string I put in as the default. Are you saying that the scope also has to be assigned for the "default" parameter to work? Thanks, San...

Content block default not working

I am trying to set a default value for an additional content block using this syntax: {content block="more_copy" assign="more_copy" label="More Copy" default="This is default copy for this additional field" oneline="true"} However, the default copy does not show up in the page editor. What am I doin...

Re: Get name of template

Thanks for that tip on how to get the template name for the current page. I did not realize that it is contained in the $smarty object. In my case however, I need to be able to get the name of the templates of other pages from within the Navigator code, so any tips to that end will be appreciated. O...

Re: Get name of template

I did some more searching and was able to write a UDT based on Calguy's response to a similar question earlier: $page_id = !empty($params['page_id']) ? $params['page_id'] : null; $hm = CmsApp::get_instance()->GetHierarchyManager(); $node = $hm->sureGetNodeByAlias($page_id); $content_obj = $node->Get...

Get name of template

Is there a way for to get the name of the template of the current page? For instance, my Navigator template looks something like this: {if isset($nodes)} {foreach $nodes as $node} <tr {fetch file="{$node->url}"} </tr> {/foreach} {/if} I'd like to be able to add some conditional logic based on the na...

Re: Smarty {include} tag

I was able to answer my own question after all. Yes it is supported and works great as long as there is no duplication of content block names between the templates.

Smarty {include} tag

I'd like to be able to use the Smarty {include} tag in my template to pull in another template. Is this supported in CMS2? What I'm trying to do cannot be done with the template inheritance method that has been well documented in Rolf's help page (http://www.cmscanbesimple.org/blog/the-power-of-temp...

Re: New template compile error in 2.1.5

Got it.

I was using a way to hide the <head> tag from the template parser:

Code: Select all

{assign var="htmlhead" val="head"}
<__html>
<{$htmlhead}>

I'm assuming this is unstable workaround at best. Is there any other way to accomplish what I need (as outlined in my earlier pseudo-code)?

Re: New template compile error in 2.1.5

Just to clarify my current use-case/need (in pseudocode): if logic condition is true then display text information (no html tags) else display html page end if I need to be able to do this at a template level, so that the page can render text or html output depending on how it is accessed. If there ...

Re: New template compile error in 2.1.5

@Rolf - thanks for link. There are some good references there. However, it does not address the specific parsing issue I'm facing. Also it looks like the scope processing has changed in the current version of the platform. For instance I used to be able to assign a variable in zone 1 and use it in z...

Re: I miss the old Global Content Blocks

I agree that in many cases it is better to stick to "core" as much as possible. In my case, I see two possibilities: 1. Use the Page:Generic approach outlined earlier in this post. It is completely based on core capabilities and not likely to change significantly in the near-to-middle term. 2. Use C...

Re: I miss the old Global Content Blocks

I had similar concerns and asked about this earlier on the forum. Here is a quick summary of the recommendations: - Create a generic template and add one content block for each GCB you will need. Make sure to give each block a unique name. - Create a page using this new template (make sure it does n...
