having a hell of a time actually being able to target anything via the dom with stupid tables.

Wouldn’t that suffice to have a target hook at individual sections: $("table#list>tbody>tr").click(function(){alert ('Huh?');});?

Re: Collapse section options

Could be something elegant like the show detail check used for the article list. I agree that the images page also needs something.

thanks wet that helped. i have things somewhat working now but i had to basically create div wrappers around each portion. and somehow move the section name out of its td wrapper.

If we keep on like this our lovely, light, clean Textpattern is going to end up as a bloated old fart…

Over my dead body. :D

Re: Collapse section options

I have an idea… we could probably really reduce bloat and make TXP super lean if we ditched the UI altogether. Who’s up for site config through phpMyAdmin. ;)

Then we wouldn’t have to alternately propose UI improvements and gallop in on white horses to save TXP from the dreaded accordian effect.

Bad 2.0, Bad.

Does everything have to be collapsible? The listing pages allow you to determine how many items per page you wish to view.

I don’t really care much about the exact implementation, but I do think that a quick way to select one particular image-/article category for display via for instance a drop-down menu / URL pop-up would be a great enhancement in terms of usability. The current search feature is fine as long as you remember your categories’ names.

this sounds pretty simple to do at least on the surface. i just wrapped up my lam_accordion_section plugin and i’ll see what i can do in this area.

My finger gets tired. Seems like the idea opportunity for a jQuery accordion. So instead of…

Section 1
# Section name
# Section title
# Use pages
# etc
Section 2
# Section name
# Section title
# Use pages
# etc
Section 3
# Section name
# Section title
# Use pages
# etc
Section 4
# Section name
# Section title
# Use pages
# etc

We’d get…

Section 1
# Section name
# Section title
# Use pages
# etc
Section 2
Section 3
Section 4

here you go lam_accordion_section

Re: Collapse section options

Well done Steve! :)

Two things that I would like to see in the core:-

First – it would be great if the “Crockery” version of the Section page were brought over to the “Development” branch at least in terms of the layout.

Second – as far as the Forms page is concerned it would be useful if the form template listing were collapsible into the 5 “types” of form ie. article, comment, link, file and miscellaneous giving a layout similar to the current tag-builder menus in the left sidebar. The form template listing can become very long indeed as forms are the main building blocks of page templates and in this way you could just have the type of form you are looking for viewable at any one time. It’s the one area where I think collapsing is actually useful.
