Re: smd_where_used: help keep your admin side tidy

Stef, is it possible to extend where used to search inside article image fields? On a site with MANY images, the user would like to search to find where an image is utilized. Where used finds image #ids within articles but not the article image field. Unless I missed something…

It should be possible. Under the ‘Look at:’ row of checkboxes is a link reading Article search fields. Click, check, save, done. At least, in theory. ymmv depending on how many other places numbers are used and which other places you elect to search.

Note to self: Don’t post anything before reading the docs or checking the options. Doh.

Thanks Stef.

Re: smd_where_used: help keep your admin side tidy

Got an idea for this one that would {cue the infomercial music} make cleanup a snap…

On the results page, add a checkbox next to each item, and allow multi-edit functions (most importantly delete).

At present I zip back and forth from the results screen and the forms area. busily getting rid of all the forms that I am not using.

It’s under consideration pending time to actually go and do it.

I’d look to finding some way of making multiple checkbox selections simple — like TXP’s multi-edit facility (but perhaps not as feature rich.

I played around with shiftcheckbox a while back. Needs some words of explanation, though, like in the demo.

Re: smd_where_used: help keep your admin side tidy

smd_where_used has always seemed bullet-proof…until now :(

Searched for known text in a custom field – but nothing found.
Also, ‘Article search fields’ checkbox selections saved after clicking ‘Save’, but deselected again by clicking ‘Search’.

v4.5.4 and no plugins except smd_where_used 0.30 & smd_lib 0.36 (required?)

Thanks in advance.

Probably won’t help, but you could try disabling the lib, it isn’t required.
