Section Selector

Wednesday 16 November 2005 7:00:29 pm - 5 replies

Hi all,
WardNet is currently developing a site which will require a lot of sub-nodes to be of a different section than their parents. Rather than constantly having to go to Setup-Sections-Assign-Browse to change the section assignments we will be creating a dropdown selector to allow quick section assignments during object creation.

Are there any problems/question this type of functionality raises with other users? Also is there enough interest in this functionality to have it included in future ezpublish releases?

We will post the patch files when we are done.

I'm very interested in this functionality. Have you made any progress in developing it?

Hi Stephen,
We have had this up and running on a production site for a few months with no problems. I didn't post the information due to a lack of interest here.

I will package a contribution tomorrow when I get some time and post a link to it here.

That's awesome! I was just recently searching for a way to do this and came across your message. Much appreciated!

I made note of the known issues and you should check them as well. If you have any trouble getting it working you can use this thread or the contrib comments.

Downloaded, installed and it's working fine with the one limitation you mention. Just what I was looking for. Thanks for your efforts!
