Category paths
Hi Andy, everyone.

I know we've an option on the Build config where we can setup the build_root_url, but I'm wondering if its possible to:

Build my main index file on my root directory and all my categories and subcategories inside a folder.

Is this possible? If yes, will you mind to share with me instructions or setup on how to do this?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

I have done this before, but its not that simple to setup :)

1) Setup your paths in the folder (including the homepage)
2) Setup a rewrite rule in your root .htaccess file:

Code:
RewriteRule ^/? /your_sub_folder/index.html [L]

That should then load the page in /your_sub_folder/index.html from the root of your site

Thats the easy part ... the hardest part is to get the URLs in the breadcrumb working right. The easiest would probably be a little global to tweak the breadcrumb. Something like:

tweak_title_loop
Code:
sub {
my @title_loop = ${$_[0]};
$title_loop[0]->{URL} =~ s|\Qyour_sub_folder/||g;
return { title_loop => \@title_loop; }
}

Then call it in your templates with:

Code:
<%tweak_title_loop($title_loop)%>

Totally untested, but will hopefully work Angelic

Cheers

Thank you Andy. I'll give this a try.

I'm also implementing the Mobile template as well, but I think this will not affect that, correct?

Hi,

For the mobile - how are you doing it? If you are using another template set then you will also need to apply this "tweak" into those templates as well

Yes, for the mobile I'm using your plugin, so I'll make the adjustment as well on that set.

Hi Andy,

Here's my breadcrumb code:

Code:
<div id="breadcrumbs">
<div class="container">
<div class="row">

<div class="breadcrumbs eight columns">
<%Links::Utils::format_title($title_loop, separator => $crumb_separator, no_escape_separator => $no_escape_crumb_separator, include_home => 1, link_type => 2)%>
</div>

<div class="date-block eight columns">
<span id="current-date" class="date"></span><!-- date holder -->
</div>

</div>
</div>
</div><!-- end Breadcrumbs -->
Should I replace this:
Code:
<%Links::Utils::format_title($title_loop, separator => $crumb_separator, no_escape_separator => $no_escape_crumb_separator, include_home => 1, link_type => 2)%>
With this code:
Code:
<%tweak_title_loop($title_loop)%>
Thanks for the clarification,

Jesus

No, you should call it before breadcrumb code.

Like that:

Code:
<!-- tweak title -->
<%tweak_title_loop($title_loop)%>
<%Links::Utils::format_title($title_loop, separator => $crumb_separator, no_escape_separator => $no_escape_crumb_separator, include_home => 1, link_type => 2)%>

Cheers,
Boris

Mmm, try:

Code:
sub {
my @title_loop = ${$_[0]};
$title_loop[0]->{URL} =~ s|\Qyour_sub_folder/||g;
return { title_loop => \@title_loop }
}

No luck, now I'm getting this error when trying to build pages.

A fatal error has occured:
Can't use an undefined value as a SCALAR reference at (eval 51) line 2.

Please enable debugging in setup for more details.


Here's the code:



Code:
sub { my @title_loop = ${$_[0]}; $title_loop[0]->{URL} =~ s|\Qdirectorio-de-monterrey/||g; return { title_loop => \@title_loop } }

Ok, needed a tweak:

Code:
sub {
my $title_loop = $_[0];
${$title_loop}[0]->{URL} =~ s|\Qdirectorio-de-monterrey/||g;
return { title_loop => $title_loop }
}

Tested, and thats working now :)
