[campsite-dev] HTMLArea update
  • I just wanted to give an update on the status of the HTMLarea
    integration so far. I've implemented "subheads" and "campsite internal
    links". The way I did it is to use HTML in the editor which gets
    transformed into campsite template tags when they are saved, and
    reverse-transformed when the article is loaded.

    Subheads are implemented as:

    Title of New Page

    Which gets transformed into:

    Title of New Page

    when it is saved.

    Campsite internal links has a popup like before. In the editor, the
    link is represented as:

    href="campsite_internal_link?IdPublication=1&IdLanguage=1&NrIssue=2">My
    Link


    Which gets transformed into:

    My Link EndLink>

    when it is saved.

    I've checked in this code to CVS - all you developers out there should
    give it a try. The subhead icon is the blue square, and the internal
    link icon is the green house. (By the way, I need 16x16 icons for this
    stuff)

    Hi Paul,

    Good to see the progress with HTMLarea. I have a couple of questions I
    wanted to ask:

    1) Are the changes we're making going to allow for the HTMLarea
    community's updates? I'd hate for you (and us) to be stuck in a
    development cul-de-sac with our development.

    2) When we're done customizing HTMLarea, how will we present it back to
    the HTMLarea community? You think there's any chance of their community
    taking up your changes?

  • Hey Paul

    Sounds like good work. About the headings though, is there a reason why
    you didn't just use the

    and/or

    tags for subhead and/or head?
    That would presumably result in a more intuitive appearance of the text
    while actually doing the editing?

  • John,

    We don't want to attach any formatting to the subheads by default. They are
    internal tags used by the Campsite parser to paginate an article. So the
    question is how do we visually identify them.

    Paul, would it be possible to install your changes on a test instance so
    that the non-CVS crowd among us could see it in action and comment?

  • There are only a few changes I've made to the core package - fixing
    some small bugs, some of which I have already posted to the forums. 
    Most of the changes, though, are plugins in a separate file.  Our
    changes are entirely campsite-specific so I dont think too many people
    will care about them except for example purposes.



    There is one somewhat larger change that needs to be made to HTMLArea
    in order to make it a better user experience, which I intend to take up
    with the developers soon.  The quirk is that when a popup appears, it
    first appears as a little box and then it resizes and centers itself in
    the middle of the screen.  It should be possible to just popup the
    window in the center without all the crazy effects.

  • With this approach we can make the subhead have any visual appearance we
    want. Right now, subheads appear with a dashed grey border around
    them. The great thing is that this can be changed for each campsite
    instance if someone does like the style. To change the style, you just
    have to edit a CSS file.

  • It would be great to have a test campsite server showing the latest
    CVS changes.  Do we have a server to set this up on?  Can someone else
    do this?  I am horribly bad at trying to install campsite, I've never
    managed to do it without lots of help from mugur.
