Re: adi_notes - leave notes for Textpattern users

Hello Adi,

is it possible to put Textpattern code in the note ?

I want to generate the name of all images categories as a memo for the end user…

<txp:category_list type="image" wraptag="ul" break="li">
<txp:category title="0" link="0" />
</txp:category_list>

Hi Jean-Pol. I’ve had that on my scribbly list for a while! I’ll look into it … but bear with me, I’m in client mode at the moment.

Re: adi_notes - leave notes for Textpattern users

This plugin is a fabulous documentation aid for newbies. I’ve been adding per-panel text to guide people through the Textpattern learning curve and have exported the table so I can apply it to new installs in one swoop :-)

To that end, I can add style rules in the Extensions->adi_notes panel for text alterations, which is grand, but I can’t figure out how to affect the paragraph margins. Just wanted a weeny bit more margin/padding between paragraphs so they’re more easily distinguishable in a large sea of text. Had to alter the hard-coded p rule in the plugin itself to do it.

Is it just me being dim at CSS (highly likely), or is there some plugin enhancement that could be made to alter such things, either from the admin panel or by using a dedicated adi_notes stylesheet to offer more stylistic control over the note blocks?

Thanks in advance for any hints.

Re: adi_notes - leave notes for Textpattern users

Hi Stef,

Having just had a quick butchers at the styling code, I think I’d only give myself a C+ “could do better” – I reckon there’s scope for improvement.

Leave it with me …

Re: adi_notes - leave notes for Textpattern users

Version 1.3 now available.

  • edit link fixes for 4.6 (thanks jpdupont)
  • tag parsing (for jpdupont)
  • style fixes & improvements (thanks Bloke)
  • inline style fix (thanks uli)
  • fix for Hive theme header (thanks MarcoK)
  • fix for preference save issue in <= 4.5.5
  • admin tab layout & styling improvements
  • now TXP 4.5+ only

As always, make a backup of your notes in advance.

There’s been a change in the way custom styles are applied, so if you’re using them take a copy before you upgrade. The installation will attempt to automatically convert the style rules to the new format, but you may need to tweak things. If all else fails, save a blank custom style & you’ll be given a united-colours-of-benetton version that you can adapt/peruse.

Re: adi_notes - leave notes for Textpattern users

Hi Adi

The plugin doesn’t work convincingly in my installation, Textpattern 4.5.7. When I change the preferences from position footer to head, then the new setting is not saved, but the existing note disappears.

Also I don’t understand how I can determine what is a note tab or a embedded note or how I can store more than one note. Or is it restricted only to one note with many paragraphs?

Something I don’t understand properly, sorry.

Re: adi_notes - leave notes for Textpattern users

Hi,

The plugin provides one note/page (as long as you need it).

Works OK for me, can you give me a bit more detail on what you see?

Also I don’t understand how I can determine what is a note tab or a embedded note or how I can store more than one note. Or is it restricted only to one note with many paragraphs?

As Yiannis said there’s one embedded note per page (either at the top or bottom). Each of these are divided into a privately editable/visible note & a publicly visible one that can only be edited by someone with admin privs.

There’re also dedicated note pages that can sit under the Home, Content, Presentation or Admin menus. These are switched on in the Notes Admin tab under Extensions and are visible to all users but can only be edited by admin users who have the required privs.
