Re: stm_article_order: Arbitrary sort order for your articles

Just installed this plugin out of curiosity. If an article doesn’t have an image the article order tab still tries to display a thumbnail.

Re: stm_article_order: Arbitrary sort order for your articles

Yup. The reason is I never learned any programming language. So the image support is hard coded and moreover restricted to only jpg’s.

The next version will come with a cookie supported toggle switch for images jpg’s ;) btw.

Oh, Matt (or anybody else as well), in case you know how to cure the image thing: please post here! Like I said in #59 “we should develop stm_article_order in a collaboration”

Re: stm_article_order: Arbitrary sort order for your articles

Thanks … all is well now!

Especially after I put this in the plug-in CCS

em.article_id a {
display: inline-block !important;
float: left;
width: 20px; /* redfox > lining up article titles straight to the left! */
}

I can fix it but how do you want me to contribute? Email you the code change or is there a repository or submitting changes?

Edit: Although it sounds like renobird is rewriting it. I assume his would be released as a new plugin with his prefix instead of the stm one?

Yes, please do so. Thanks, Matt!
I’m looking forward to dismantling your code :) I looked at the way redbot did it in bot_show_image, but couldn’t get my head around integrating it.

Thanks for your contribution!
I realized this CSS flaw but didn’t care at the end of the day :)

Hey Matt – you are correct – I’m basically rewriting the plugin. I’m a bit buried with other projects at the moment, but I’d like to get back to it shortly. In the meantime I’m sure any progress on stm_article_order would be much appreciated.

Re: stm_article_order: Arbitrary sort order for your articles

I sent Uli a way to check for an article image. It doesn’t fix the file extension issue since I think that would require another query against the images table but it’s an improvement.

Re: stm_article_order: Arbitrary sort order for your articles

You’re great Uli!

Is it possible to give articles which are ‘hidden’ (draft, etc!) another background-color?

Re: stm_article_order: Arbitrary sort order for your articles

That’s been an easy one, phew. I left the version number and just re-uploaded the file.
