clientside and serverside plugin development

Can the two be created within one plugin?

I want to produce a tag that outputs data into a website and the data to be managed via the txp backend. But I can’t get it to work with one plugin, I have to create 2, one serverside and one client side

Certainly. Set the plugin type to 1 (Public + Admin) and it’ll be loaded on both sides (the plugin composer allows you to do this via a radio button). Then it’s just down to setting your callbacks appropriately. You can detect from which side your plugin is being called with:

if(@txpinterface == 'admin') { ... }

and set your admin-side callbacks there.

That’s what I did but I get the following;

Fatal error: Call to undefined function pagetop() in c:\program files\apache group\Apache\htdocs\temp_site\fiscal_cms\textpattern\lib\txplib_misc.php(638) : eval()’d code on line 16

Weird, that should always be available on the admin side (it’s not available on the public side of course). Can you share a snippet of code on how you set up your admin-side callbacks and the function it’s calling where the pagetop is?

I think it’s because I hadn’t enclosed all the admin functions within if(@txpinterface == ‘admin’) { …

Not getting the error now I’ve done that

That would certainly fix it! In theory you don’t need to wrap the functions themselves in the conditional — just the setting up of the callbacks. The functions shouldn’t be called at all if the callbacks aren’t set so it should never try and run those functions anywhere other than the admin side.
