Re: smd_bio : store additional biographical info about your users

While I’m at it, a few small changes:

For the table on the list page, change the class of the first <th > in the <thead /> from .multi-edit to .txp-list-col-multi-edit (matching all other list panels)

On the users edit panels, small improvement to the display of the image row:

.smd_bio_image { display: inline-block; vertical-align: top}
.smd_bio_image img { vertical-align: bottom; margin: .2em .5em}

Edit: Here is a mockup (using Sandspaces theme).

Where is that emoji for a solar powered submarine when you need it ?

Re: smd_bio : store additional biographical info about your users

I was working on some code to display links to various social networks for each author but only the ones that were actually used. After getting it working, I noticed how repetitive it was.

So I made a bunch of links (Facebook, Twitter, Github, Google+. Pinterest, LinkedIn) and put them in a Category Social.

I call them using:

<txp:linklist category="Social" sort="linksort asc" >
    <txp:smd_bio_info fields='<txp:link_name />'>
        <txp:smd_if_bio field='<txp:link_name />'>
            <a href="<txp:smd_bio_data field='<txp:link_name />' />">
                    <use xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" xlink:href="#<txp:link_name />"></use>

Re: smd_bio : store additional biographical info about your users

smd_bio v0.5.0 is (finally) here for Textpattern 4.7.0+.

  • Use Txp 4.7.0-style language identifiers.
  • Add class txp-form-field to wrapping divs for all bio fields in admin (thanks, johnstephens).
  • Fix classnames and scope (thanks, philwareham and phiw13).
  • Fix SQL errors when creating columns.
  • Fix MySQL restrictions on DEFAULT column types.
  • Alter default column types for most columns. Text-based columns are way too big and result in performance issues as they cannot be cached.
  • Register tags.
  • Layout fix for ‘More’ widgets.
  • Use getThings() instead of safe_field() to avoid triggering a bug (thanks, makss).

As usual, please report any issues or enhancements. Enjoy!

Thank you, Bloke! I can’t believe I did something helpful for this plugin, though.
