Updated the features... Looks like we will be able to support HTML or BBCodes. That is to say, for each page you create you will be able to write its content using BBCodes, and smileys just like when posting...or you can instead use HTML. You just won't be able to combine BBCodes and HTML at the same time in a page.

Fatal error

Post by Mauron » Fri Aug 22, 2014 2:45 pm

Hi,
despite of the fact that I'm helpless in using this extension (I don't know where is the option to create a page), I just got this error after updating it:
Fatal error: Class phpbb\pages\event\listener contains 1 abstract method and must therefore be declared abstract or implement the remaining methods (Symfony\Component\EventDispatcher\EventSubscriberInterface::getSubscribedEvents) in [directory]\phpBB\ext\phpbb\pages\event\listener.php on line 20

It's nowhere near finished yet. It's under development. You can't use it yet.

Until we post about a release version or you see installation instructions pop up here, consider it a WIP not ready for any kind of use/testing yet.

Please hold off on translations. This extension is about 10% developed, so there's absolutely nothing to translate yet.

Translations should not be made on extensions until they are announced as releases or pre-releases.

1. Will it be possible to use template and language variables?

2. How about adding a small tutorial for specific .htaccess rewrite rules in the extension's documentation? Like this one: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/mod/ ... /faq/f_323 And you can include a warning there about all the possible conflicts.

3. Will the pages appear at the viewonline?
1. I don't think so.
3. Yes.
Then how about being able to type different "custom page content" for multiple installed languages?

You could do that through each page's management panel.

This will be possible. We are going to be able to support custom template files that you can add to it, to use instead of the template file it ships with. That means you can put anything you want into the template files, including more HTML and phpbb template syntax/variables. You'll be able to assign any template file available to each page you create.

will the extension automatically build an "index page" of the pages created?

with 3.0 static pages that is what happens, as each page is created, the title of the page plus who the author was gets added to a cumulative index - the title of the page as included in the "index page" becomes a link that any user can click on etc

actually with the static pages on my site, the right hand column was filled with my name as only Admins could create a page and I was the only Admin so Author was just filled with my name, should people on the forum "other" than Admins be allowed to create a page in this extension? would it be worth allowing somehow a "trusted" group membership to do the creating or will it strictly be Admins again? :D

Nope.

The Static Pages MOD had a major limitation in that it did not provide useable links to its pages, so it had a list of all pages page as a workaround to that.

Pages extension lets you create links, and place them in any of 10 different possible locations at the moment. So there is no need for a page of pages. But if you have become dependent on such a thing (which is itself limited because what if you don't want every page in the list) the nice thing about Pages extension is you can create a Page for that too - using our flexible HTML options, you can create your own unique table of contents of your static pages, if you need such a page.

We also do not track authors of pages, because this is not a blog, they're just static pages so we don't see a meaningful reason to advertise who created a page. Instead we log all page additions, edits and deletions to the admin log, so admins can see who has been working on pages in the logs.

And only Admins can create Pages as the interface is inside the ACP.
