Topic: id and opacity bug

Not sure if this will help or not:

I was just reading about the opacity selecter and how it affects all children of the element you are applying that value to. So if CKEditor is in fact a child of your wrapper, you might be applying the opacity value to it as well.

With CSS3 there is now another option although it is not yet globally supported by all of the browsers... RGBA values.

Instead of giving your wrapper a background color of white and setting the opacity to 0.5 (for example), try doing this instead:

background-color: rgba(255,255,255,0.5);

RGBA will only be applied to the element you choose (and not its children!)

Topic: Adding <div> to sidebar is removed by HTML tidy?

Do you have room for more developers/contributors?

I think this is something I could contribute to.

Topic: Filenames, Titles, etc.

* this is a repost from my reply to a support question *

Could we add a couple of new fields into editing a page in the File Manager?

Right now when we create a page we give it a name. That could be left alone, allowing us to give our files unique filenames.  People who want their homepage to read like a homepage could call it "index", "home", "welcome", etc.  They could still use their .htaccess to remove the initial index.php from the url.

Then, why not add two new fields to the file editor?

1. Page title What you enter here will be added to the browser title. This is pretty important as an SEO feature as well.  Titlebar would then read "Page Title" - "Site Name"

2. Menu title What you enter here will be printed in the menu.

Take a product page as an example:

Filename: "products"

Page Title: "The Finest Tools Available - ToolMan Inc."

Menu Title: "Our Products"

Sorry, I know this is basically a feature request but I think it would help in this case.

Not sure why I didn't think through using the Arrange Content area before. That does seem like a better solution.

So you would first create a new page in File Manager, and then after navigating to your new page, use the Arrange Content tool to place Extra Content on a per-page basis.

That would be a great solution.. How fast can you get it done??? :)

I think that would work but it wouldn't be easy enough to line up with the CMS philosophy.

This would be more work for the developers, but I would like to see something built in to the File Manager in gpEasy. For example, you would hover over a page name and within the popup you would see:

  • View File
  • Rename
  • Extra Content
  • ...

So you would open up the File Manager, hover over a page, select Extra content and then drag in extra content items for that page specifically.

I'm actually wondering if that wouldn't be very difficult to implement?

Josh, are you still out there to comment on this?

Your CSS method will work asthetically, but it's not a real solution when it comes to search engine optimization.  Search engines will still be reading the extra content on every page which will make it harder for you to optimize for something.

The CMS needs to have a method for managing extra content on a per-page basis built into its core functionality.  Maybe the only trick for Josh is to find a way to do this in an "easy" way?

Based on my own experience, Website Baker does this type of thing pretty well (their equivalent to extra content would be a "block").

Topic: Extra Content - Page placement?

Thanks for your thoughts on that.. I was hoping not to have to go down the road of maintaining multiple templates in order to have different columns/layouts. 

Although, I suppose I could create two separate templates with different numbers of columns, and in each one do a php include for the header and footer sections. That way, updates to either one would be a global change to all templates.

Topic: Forms

Is anyone working on a form builder?

There are a couple of jquery form builders out there that might be able to be integrated if there's not already one in the works... Would be a great addition to the CMS.
