Custom page creator?

Post by Humanrag3 » Fri Feb 20, 2009 5:25 am

Really don't know what else to call this,but what I'm trying to say is, is there any possibility, from ACP, adding a new module to create custom pages on a phpbb forum?

Ok lets say, in ACP, theres a new module called "Add Pages", and when you go to that tab, you have a text editor or something, and you can put the title of the page and the content of the page then click "submit" and MYSITE.COM/FORUM/WHAT_EVER_TITLE.php would be created?

Or maybe not even in ACP. Just a forum function where a specific category,what ever you post becomes a new page. or a seprate page where a mod is allowed to put a title and content and a new page would be created. :?

I don't know how well I described it.:(

This is actually quite a good idea. I'll try to see if someone attempted this or write a MOD of my own. However I can't say when I'll have the time, perhaps sometime next week.

Cool thanks.This would almost be like a news feeder. :D

I think able to do this from another custom page(staff only) would be more efficient then being able to do it in ACP

^ Something of that brand but not exactly.

I know how to make custom pages,lol. But I need to create few more and I thought maybe it would be a nice mod if thru ACP it was able to create custom pages.

eh that doesn't sound right.

I am currently using the Blank Page MOD.
The Custom Page MOD looks good, but the HTML restriction prevents me from using it.

The reason I need HTML is that I am using the Page as a download point for applications that I am testing. I created a group on my Forum for testers and give them special access to a forum for testing. Then I needed to create a page that supported HTML for downloading/installing the Adobe AIR application. This page had to look like the final download page for the application, which uses JavaScript.

I used the tip from the Blank Page MOD to limit access to the page based on the Group ID. I think it would be nice to be able to assign access to certain pages to certain groups. This would be similar to how you assign a group access to a forum. This would allow me to create testers for different applications and then they would have access to different download/install pages for the application.

Creating Custom BBCodes for the HTML snippets you need to use is not in question?

I guess I could do that.
I really hadn't planned on anyone else making the pages except the Admin, but allowing certain people to view the pages.

Well, the custom BBCODE thing worked.

Thanks for the help on that. Of course, it means I can just post the install link directly in the forum without need for the page.
