Re: jmd_neighbor: Pipe neighboring articles into an article form

Jon-Michael, thanks for this extremely versatile plugin! After understanding what it does and what can be done with it I was completely stunned to see, that it uses only around 1500 bytes.
Do you plan on giving it more criteria for neighborhood than the article id?

Glad you’re finding it useful!

I could – what kind of neighbors were you thinking about? By category?

Re: jmd_neighbor: Pipe neighboring articles into an article form

Jon-Michael, I’m quiet happy, that you ask for my ideas, cause I have plenty!
As I never deploy txp as a blog, but rather as a CMS, “date” would be fine for me. Or custom_n. Maybe custom_n is already almost the work required for a freely definable ‘db-column=“column_name”’ from table “textpattern”, since some plugins like to install their own columns. Or a fixed sort order by ID for static pages, sort=“ID” order=“33,12,58,17,18,16”.

I don’t know what seems reasonable and which of my ideas requires how much of your valuable time. I just thought ID in the actual way of handling wouldn’t allow for more universal applications, that the idea behind this fine plugin potentially offers.

Re: jmd_neighbor: Pipe neighboring articles into an article form

Nice plug-in, thank you. I too would love to see sort options, as I’m sorting a section by a custom field.

Re: jmd_neighbor: Pipe neighboring articles into an article form

Does anybody have an installable .txt version of this plugin?

Thanks

Re: jmd_neighbor: Pipe neighboring articles into an article form

I could only find the php file (which you can drop into your plugin_tmp folder (defined in the admin > settings) if you want to use it. If you have ied_plugin_composer installed, you can export a txt installer file from there.

But if the built-in link_to_next and link_to_prev tags don’t cut it for you, you might want to look at etc_link_to (see other threads in the form for examples) or smd_horizon.

Re: jmd_neighbor: Pipe neighboring articles into an article form

Thank you Jakob, finally I know how to make good use of plugins when only php file is available.

This seems to do what I actually need (next and prev navigation with relevant article image backgrounds).
Unfortunately I am playing with 4.6.0 Beta and the plugin gives me this error: Unregisterd_Tag
Should I ask the developer to make the plugin 4.6.0 compatible?

It will not work as is in 4.6, you need to replace $next_id and $prev_id with $thisarticle['next']['thisid'] and $thisarticle['prev']['thisid']. Amazingly, it seems to be no core tag for prev/next ids.

Oops, sorry, it needs some reworking for the same reason that in my previous post. I’ll try to do it quickly.

Edit: ATM, it should suffice to add this at the beginning of the plugins code:

// TXP 4.6 tag registration
if (class_exists('\Textpattern\Tag\Registry')) {
	Txp::get('\Textpattern\Tag\Registry')->register('etc_link_to')
		->register('etc_link_page')
		->register('etc_link_id')
		->register('etc_link_title');
}

No. Definitely it needs some reworking. Take your time.
And thank you again.

P.S. Registering error disappeared, by the way.
