Post: Application Routing - Really nessesary... ?

Hi DimDragon,

I understand the problem, but:

If we allow the application routing to be customized this will require all the applications to have all these paths as settings. Many webframes need to have links to pages that need to have specific functionality. As an example the post edit page should be made as a setting so the edit link knows where to redirect the user for managing a post.

This is possible solution and the only reason it is not made this way is 'cause it will take too much additional development time and will not be very used functionality. Also it will be unnecessary complication for the regular users. 

The way to implement this is to have a certain settings tab in the Builder's core section, while managing the application, where you can manage all the application routing rules and paths.

This is quite possible.

If there are other integrators that need this functionality please comment here so we can prioritize its implementation

Hi Jerry,

in the new ITBrix.Core update of the Integra software now you can use a the new functionality.

To do that, smart browse the public site and look for the new smart browse bar menu labeled "SEO".

With its help you can quickly add or edit the page title, keywords or description

Post: What are your suggestions for adding SEO elements to Integra installations.

Hi Jerry,

the SEO currently is managed by the core administration only, but we have scheduled a lot easier way to manage the page SEO from the smart browse bar.

To manage the page meta data now you need to do the following:

1. Navigate to the page on the public site while the "smart browse" is enabled.

2. Click on the "environment" smart browse tab and than on the top "manage" link which is the corresponding one and on the right of the page name

3. Login in the core if you are not, and wait while the system automatically checks out the page

4. Click on the "Metadata" tab and manage the details.

5. Save and Checking the page.

The process will be improved with the new ticket implemented and should provide you with a direct access to the page metadata while smartbrowsing it, by clicking a new SEO context menu in the smart browse

Post: How to implement Retweet button on my blog

Hi Jessy,

the implementation of the retweet button (the same with FaceBook "like" and Google "buzz") is a matter of pasting the correct piece of code in the blog post presentation template.

The only specific is that you need to set the URL of the post dynamically with the help of the URL functional tags or the presentation tags of the webframe itself. 

To do that follow these steps

  1. First get the code for the Retweet button code snippet. In this case from this URL
  2. The code should look like:
  3. Log in your Public Site with an account that has the Architect or Builder roles delegated.
  4. Navigate to a blog Post page
  5. Check if the Smart Browse mode is enabled, by looking in the lower left corner of the page.
  6. Now place your mouse on top of the blog post text and right click
  7. Select "Settings" from the context menu
  8. The webframe settings page will be presented. Click on its "Specific settings" tab
  9. The presentation template for single post will be presented in the text area. In WordFrame Integra the webframe presentation templates are a mix of standard HTML and webframe specific presentation tags.
  10. Paste the Code from the Tweetmeme site and manipulate the presentation template HTML according to your needs
  11. Set the "tweetmeme_source" to your site name or brand as this will be shown by tweeter as source.
  12. Set the "tweetmeme_url" to be generated by WordFrame Integra dynamically by pasting as URL "{{url: site-domain}}{{permalink_url}}" The first tag will be substituted by your site's root URL. The second will be substituted with the relative post permanent URL.
  13. Press the "Save" button

It make take a few minutes for the tweetmeme service to present a digit in the button box. If it keeps the question mark, check the error it represents and fix it

Post: Where to change specific categories listed in secondary navigation menus?

Hi Jerry,

the implementation of EcoBuilderToday is using the Blog application categories as secondary navigation. This is applicable for all three post threads.

In order to manage them, you need to manage the categories of each of the three blog applications that are the backbone of your system.

These steps are applicable for your custom implementation only:

1. Log in to the Public site with an account that can administrate the blog application instances. An Architect, Builder or Manager role account will most probably do the job.

2. Click on the Admin tab of the primary site navigation

3. Here in the second navigation you can see the three blog instances "Posts", Green projects" and "Dave views"

4. Select the Settings tab of the "Posts thread administration"

5. Click on a category in the grid to manage it or create new categories. The changes will be immediately applied

6. Do the same for the other two blog threads by selecting them in the secondary navigation

7. You are done

Have in mind that each horizontal navigation has its limitations in width.

Post: Adding the Search query box webframe in a sidebar

As this is a form you need the button to be part of the HTML in order to be triggered on "Enter". But it does not mean that it needs to be visible.

So just insert the button template "ctrl_search_link" in a div block with display:none style
