Subject [jira] [Commented] (ROL-2050) Page action with Admin management panel
Date Sun, 31 Aug 2014 22:50:21 GMT


Tamas Balazs commented on ROL-2050:


That sounds excellent, I will definitely be happy to see this sort of change as I need to
tinker with templates a lot actually -owing to the reasons  of my sometimes erratic content.

All in all - by modifying the basic template I am actually pretty happy with the result so
far - the templating system works pretty well, despite of my lack of skills in both Velocity
and Roller templating in general...:)

Have a good day!

> Hi,
> I am trying to add multiple "pages" to a weblog. the reason of adding "pages" instead
of entries is simple - the content of these are not articles but dynamically loading JS-like
frontend applications. The reasons I cannot add them into "entries" are simple - if these
pages show up the applications start loading in immediately, which would cause a bit of a
mayhem with all of their music, movies, maps etc. Also I don't want to limit the number of
entries to be shown just for the sake of these. Unfortunately I cannot make these applications
to run after user initiated JS input (ie. I cannot create "Click here to start" button as
the third party app will just not work with them).
> Cut the long story short, I would like to add "Pages" to the blog. Currently the only
way I can do is (as far as I know) is that I add custom templates for each individual pages.
This is fine(ish) for now as I have only 10-12 pages, but this number is likely to go up in
the future.
> Obviously there is always a workaround to my issue (setting up another blog, tailor its
presentation layer that meets the third party apps requirements and then link the these elements
as entries, etc.) but to be honest every major blog-management system has this "page" feature
and I would be grateful to see this coming in the forthcoming release. I guess in layman's
terms what I would be happy to see is an option under the "Create&Edit" section for "Page",
which then can create the feature in accordance with its template action. Regarding creating
their index I don't think the first release of this improvement need to go too far on that
- if there is a Velocity macro/script doing some basic page url/name listings that will be
> On the other hand there might be a similar solution somewhere in the Roller docs and
I have just couldn't find it so far - in this case please let me know what I am doing wrong.
> Thanks
