Events registration management made easy, right there in your CMS

Monday 17 June 2019 03:58

by Thiago Campos Viana  | 0 comments

Letting site visitors know that you have exciting events coming up is just the first step in building attendance and audience engagement. You also need to make it easy for guests to register for those events, and your team needs flexible management tools that help you keep all those dates, attendees and waiting lists organized.

Automating “curly” quotes in rich text fields

Thursday 02 May 2019 09:14

by Dave Fearnley  | 0 comments

One of our clients recently came to us with an interesting problem. When end users type content into a rich text field, double quotes, single quotes and apostrophes are not “smart.” That is, the quotes and apostrophes are straight instead of curly — typographically speaking, they are inch and feet characters.

An editor might type this:

  • J. R. R. Tolkien wrote "The Lord of the Rings," a trilogy of novels that serve as a sequel to Tolkien's "The Hobbit."

But really want this:

  • J. R. R. Tolkien wrote “The Lord of the Rings,” a trilogy of novels that serve as a sequel to Tolkien’s “The Hobbit.”

Here's how we created a script to automate search and replace for curly quotes and implemented an easy-to-use button in the client’s CMS to run the task.

Get to Know Your Customers Better (and Easier) with Mugo Custom Forms

Thursday 02 May 2019 05:56

by Thiago Campos Viana  | 0 comments

Customer feedback is a powerful tool for decision-making in any business. Web forms are a popular device for gathering such information, but it’s critical that site operators can easily create forms with the right questions and formats that encourage user interaction. We created an eZ Platform module that lets editors build a custom form by selecting from multiple different input types and ordering the fields as desired. In this blog post, we’ll discuss key details of our Mugo Custom Forms module.

Custom tags in eZ Platform with legacy bridge without XSL

Thursday 20 September 2018 07:41

by Thiago Campos Viana  | 0 comments

In a previous blog post we covered how to create custom tags in eZ Platform (with the legacy bridge or eZ Publish 5.x). The most difficult part of that process was building the XSL to output the custom tag HTML. But there's a simpler way to do it, which allows the developer to use Twig template code instead of XSL.

How one should code in eZ Platform

Monday 11 June 2018 10:18

by Jean-Luc Chassaing  | 0 comments

Some eZ Platform devs are old ez legacy devs. Some of them (like me) started building eZ websites on 3.x releases. The thing is they have bad old habits and they tend to keep building ezPlatform projects on a legacy way of doing things. But that's a bad path. After taking some time on a eZ 5.x and eZ Enterprise projects here is what I found out.

Enabling SELinux to keep your eZ Publish / eZ Platform website secure

Thursday 03 May 2018 07:38

by Ernesto Buenrostro  | 0 comments

Dealing with permissions and security systems such as Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) is an issue that seems to challenge many developers. Some enterprise Linux distributions like Red Hat and CentOS come with SELinux enabled by default, but not knowing how SELinux works can lead developers to disable it. This is a mistake.
