Re: mck_snippet

Hi Marco,
thanks for making this plugin public. I’d find it super useful for giving website owners a certain level of interaction with the inner workings of my code (e.g. sorting categories for a category_list) without exposing the rest of it to potential damage, or for editing short notifications for the front side without risking the proper display of the website or confusing them too much by making these notifications from whole articles. That’s pretty cool!

I found, however, that it’s impossible to switch from textiling the snippet to “leave untouched”. No matter whether I edit an existing snippet or if I create a new one, the menu shows only “Textile” when I re-open the snippet.

When I use a snippet tag inside a section_list tag, e.g. <txp:section_list sections='<txp:mck_snippet title="test"/>' /> I have to begin the content of the snippet with a comma, otherwise the first section won’t be displayed. The same is valid for the last section name: without a final comma the last section isn’t displayed. That’s probably too error prone for most of the users.

EDIT: just saw: a space at the beginning removes the need for a comma at the end. Space at the beginning? Reminds me of Textile. Are the two issues I described tied together?

There are an isssue, now fixed, that when you reopen the snippet it will showed always textile. But however, the select showed also the other option. Now, if you select ‘leave untouched’, che option will be selected on reopening.

Sorry Uli, i don’t understand what you mean. I have made some test and.. if i use <txp:section_list sections='<txp:mck_snippet title="test"/>' /> with test as sec1,sec2 or ,sec1,sec2, I obtain the same result such as using <txp:section_list sections='sec1,sec2' /> or <txp:section_list sections=',sec1,sec2,' />

Released mck_snippet 1.5

Re: mck_snippet

Hey Marco, problem solved. Completely! Thank you very much!

I think the two issues had really been tied together, cause I can replicate the previous behavior: whenever I switch from “leave untouched” to Textile with the new version I have to use the space or the commas in order to have the desired output.
Thanks again, as well for the quick update :)

Re: mck_snippet

Released new versione: 1.7

Download link

Now there is 4 more tags:

mck_snippet_zone
You can set some ‘zone’ on your website, and create some snippet for that zone.

mck_snippet_ and mck_snippet_body if you would parse your snippet into a form.

mck_snippet_script show script for manage snippet.

For me the best update is the possibility of edit in place each snippet: <mck_snippet editable="1" id="1" /> with double click edit in place this snippet.

If you use mck_snippet_zone with mck_snippet_script (required mck_login) you get on front-end two button for add new snippet in that Zone or manage existing snippet.

For each Zone, in admin section, you can sort all snippet simply with drag and drop (thank ad jquery.sortable())

Re: mck_snippet

Hi MarcoK,
thanks for this plugin. Really helpful when it comes to manage some micro-content here and there without the need to create a hidden section and (ab)use an article.

I’ve noticed that Textpattern tags inside an snippet aren’t parsed in a 404 page (not sure why, any ideas?).
I’ve found a fixed by changing a line in mck_snippet code:

At the end of the public mck_snippet function, I’ve changed this:

return doTag(((@$thissnippet['snipEditable'])?'<div class="mck_snippet_editable" data-snipBody="'.$thissnippet['snipID'].'">'.$thissnippet['snipBody_html'].'</div>':$thissnippet['snipBody_html']), $wraptag, $class,'', $wrap_id);

to this:

return parse(doTag(((@$thissnippet['snipEditable'])?'<div class="mck_snippet_editable" data-snipBody="'.$thissnippet['snipID'].'">'.$thissnippet['snipBody_html'].'</div>':$thissnippet['snipBody_html']), $wraptag, $class,'', $wrap_id));

Basically, I’ve wrapped the full thing with the parse() function, and now, the tags inside an snippet are parsed on a 404 page, and other “normal” (200) page are still working as expected.
So, if you find nothing wrong with this fix, could you make it into the next release?

PS: and now, a quick feature request: could you run update_lastmod() (see here) whenever an snippet is updated? That will play nice with other plugins (ie. aks_cache) that rely on a change to the LastMod date do their magic.

Thanks.

Re: mck_snippet

Hello MarcoK !

On 4.6.2, the plugin don’t work, because mysql_ must be mysqli_.
My workaround : create the mck_snippet table in phpmyadmin.

This plugin must be in the core ! Thanks !

Have you some plan to release a txp 4.6.2 version ?
