glossary and help... what is this?

Sunday 11 May 2003 10:04:32 pm - 3 replies

in a pagelayout template of the demo site, i found this line:

{include uri="design:page_head.tpl" enable_glossary=false() enable_help=false()}

Allthought they are "off", i'd like to know, what enable_glossary and enable_help will do.
Some kind of online-help and -glossary (I saw some discussion about ezAcronym...).
Can someone (ez?) give us a hint... an undocumented/not finished feature?

I'm working on a glossary operator for templates, so when I saw the incude line I had to investigate it. If you track that call, it'll go to link.tpl and that's where the answer is as well.

enable_glossary refers to the SDK tab (as you can see on and enable_help refers to the Manual pages. Or was it the other way around? happy.gif Emoticon Both default to off in standard installs.

Allright, thanks, but I still don't understand the purpose of the "enables".
Will this enable an (existing) operator or so?

BTW: Thanks for your glossary operator. I can't use it yet, but it sound very good for ez3. I'd need something like that for ez2 blunk.gif Emoticon

If these variables are set to true() they the link.tpl template will add some
<link rel="" href=""> tags to the header.
The <link> tags are hints which the web browser can use, for instance Opera 7 uses this to create a top bar with Home, Index, Search, Glossary etc. Lynx will also use these tags and display them at the top.

For instance try Opera 7 or Lynx on (You might have to enable it in Opera 7, View/Navigation Bar/Auto should do it)

If you enable glossary and help, the sdk and manual will be added.
