PageBuilder Plugin
I am happy to announce that the PageBuilder plugin has just been uploaded to the GT server, and is available for download.

Features:

- the plugin allows you to build dynamic and static pages very easily. Examples: "About Us" page, "Contact" page etc.

- all pages are template based. This allows you basically create your whole website using the power and flexibility of Links SQL.

- you can use all the globals and include any template of your default template set.

- page hierarchy: pages are structured hierarchically. This allows you to easily print "breadcrumb" navigation (similar to "title_linked" in Links SQL).

- you can create pages for every link, category, user, editor, review. Examples: create a second detailed page (more details, print view).

- conditional building: pages only for certain links, categories, etc. Example: special page for "premium" links.

- conditional viewing: in dynamic mode, you can control who is allowed to see which page. Example: link pages or other pages, that are only accessible to your registered users.

- build HTML pages, but also PDF or Postscript pages (you need to install HTMLDOC in order to produce PDF or Postscript files). Example: printable link page.

- static pages can be automatically updated whenever you build the rest of your directory.

Price: the plugin costs USD 50. You can pay through PayPal by clicking on the link that appears when you try to download the plugin. Once you have paid, you will get access to download the plugin.

Example site: most of the non-directory and non-forum pages on http://www.iyengar-yoga.com/ are generated by the PageBuilder plugin.

Happy downloading!

Feel free to post your questions and/or comments.

Ok

In PageBuilder.pm

Find:

push @out_linked, qq|<a href="$page->{root_url}/">$top</a>|;

and replace it with:

push @out_linked, qq|<a href="your_domain">$top</a>|;

that should work till a solution is found in the hard code..

Re: [katabd] PageBuilder Plugin Bug In reply to
This should actually work, there is no need to edit PageBuilder.pm as far as I can see.

One of the plugin options is the "pb_root_url", which you can set to whatever you want, e.g http://www.yoursite.com. If you leave it empty, the build root of Links SQL will be taken.

I hope this answers your question.

I have just put up a new version of the PageBuilder plugin, which should fix this problem (in my previous answer, I was referring to my developement version, which had the fix, but I didn't notice that the download version was still the old version).

The new version also fixes a small problem with Link specific pages: in dynamic mode, the previous and next link urls where not completely correct.

So it's just a minor fix, the version is now 1.0.1.

Can we make page buider buid the page where we want on the server?

Imagine the homepage of LSQL is at the following adresse
http://www.mysite.com/pages/index.html

Can I make pagebuilder build a page at the root of the site :
http://www.mysite.com/builpage.html

Can I make pagebuilder build a page in my cgi-bin directory?

Can pagebuider make any type of page (.html .php .txt .cgi...)

Hi

katabd has already answered your question, I'll provide you with some details.

1) if you want the pagebuilder build root directory to be something else than the LSQL build root directory, enter the path you want in the plugin options.

2) yes, just give the correct path and filename

3) yes, just select the filename you want. What may be misleading is that you have to set "file type" to HTML (not PDF or Postscript) for any text file, i.e. any file that is not a PDF of a postscript file.

I hope that helps.

Parent Page

What if you are building the links in a subdirectory?

The page gets built okay, but the Simple Breadcrumb Link has a prob. The Top link goes to the top of the site, not to the top of the subdirectory. I'd like the Top link in the Simple Breadcrumb to go to the top of the subdirectory.

The only choices that I have for the Parent Page are "-" and "Root", even though my build path is ..../public_html/links/blahblah....

Thanks. This plugin is much more elaborate than I expected. It's quite a nice addition. Smile

If I understand you correctly, then you should be able to do the following:

1) leave pb_root_url and pb_root path empty (the Links SQL build_root_url and build_root_path) will be taken.
2) build a page, with empty directory, and filename "about_us.html". Make it a subpage of "Root".
3) The title linked should then be something like

Home : About Us

where Home is linked to your "links" directory (this is the simple breadcrumb type).

I hope this helps.

If the admin wants to switch to a different set of templates, they would have to change the file

PageBuilder Plugin >>> 2 questions In reply to
Hi yogiWink

Can pagebuilder do the following :
  • build many "simple" page with the same template
    I have seen that a template was created for each page name. But the page name has to be unique.
    I just want to had a column in the database (content for exemple). then having a common template for the page I want
    Then we could have most of the datas contained in the database intead of in the statc html templates...
  • for link page the build filename has to be unique
    What I want to do is to a a column in my links table called builder_name. I can specify that this field has to be unique
    Then I could use the following filename : <%builder_name%>.html (instead of <%LinkID%>) for all the pages created by page builder
    How to do it? What do I have to change? and where?


thanks for your answer

Re: [fmp] PageBuilder Plugin >>> 2 questions In reply to
Hi

1. First of all, you can change the default simple template to your needs, so that you don't have to change the header etc every time a page is created. If you still want to put the page content into the database, do the following: change the default simple template (pb_default_simple.html) to contain only

<%include include_my_header.html%>
<%page_content%>
<%include include_my_footer.html%>

Then you create a new column in the table called 'page_content', where you store the page content. A new template is created anyway for every page, but it will just contain the three lines, and it will be the same for every template. This sort of setup is also used by katabd, maybe he has some more tricks for you.

2. You can easily change this by modifying the file 'admin/Plugins/PageBuilder.pm'. Around line 30 you see the following code
Code:
sub init {
# -------------------------------------------------------------------
# initialize plugin variables

$PB_CFG = Links::Plugins->get_plugin_user_cfg('PageBuilder');
$PAGEBUILDER_FIELDS = { link => { filename => [qw/LinkID builder_name/],
directory => [qw/LinkID Full_Name CategoryID/] },
category => { filename => [qw/CategoryID/],
..............
I have indicated the changes in red. Make sure the column is indeed unique, and that it only contains characters that are valid in a filename.

I hope that helps.

Re: [fmp] PageBuilder Plugin >>> 2 questions In reply to
This could easily be added for 'simple' pages, and a little be less easily for all the other page types. What would probably be the best solution is to put all the directories separated by commas on the page_directory field.

Why do you want to build a page in several locations? Just curious....

Hi Ivan,

I was thinking of using you powerful page builder plug in to build the static pages for another language.Angelic I as well was a little bothered by the idea of having all the page builder templates in the same directory... I would like to keep the page builder templates in the directory of the language that the page builder pages are being used in. So if the templates could be in several different places, It would be much easier to handle several different languages with less confusion when modifying the templates since each language will have all it's templates in the same spot. Hope this makes sense to you.

Yogi:

First, congratulations on a great plugin. Very useful and powerful tool!

One thing I believe would be a great enhancement would be the ability to build pages based on a certain condition and that would SPAN pages.

An example would be:-

Condition - abc = Yes (are 'multiple conditions possible?)

Span Pages = Yes (additional field)

In this way, you could build certain custom pages that fit certain criteria and automatically create the SPAN pages links in each page.

Ideally, the first page created would be an index.shtml page and more1, more2 etc as linked pages.

Is this possible? (I hope I am clear what I am asking).

Sounds like a good idea.

However, I need more information on what you want to do.

First of all, the condition is for building 'link', 'category', 'user' etc. pages. If you add a condition in there, a page is built for all links, categories, users, that meet the condition.

Can you tell me what sort of page you would like to define which has page spanning enabled?

Re: [yogi] PageBuilder Plugin In reply to
hi,

the plugin is great. but at the moment i have some problems.

waht i want to do is to use some pages both, in static and dynamic mode.

i tried the following:

<a href="<%build_root_url%>/Static/mypage.html">click</A>

that works in static-mode well (/Static/ is my pb_root)

in dynamic-mode the link is:

http://www.mysite.de/.../mypage.html&d=1

and this link doesn't work. I always get an error, that the page doesn't exist.

I think the syntax of the dynamic link is ok, as its the same in the /New/, /cool/, ... areas.

But maybe it has something to do with the paths, as for New, Cool,etc. there is a path-definition in

admin->setup->Paths and URLs

Does anyone has a solution ?

Manu

Re: [ManuGermany] PageBuilder Plugin In reply to
The solution depends on whether you want the pagebuilder page to be dynamic when the directory is dynamic, or if you want it to be static even if the directory is dynamic.

The second case is easier: just use

<a href="/Static/mypage.html">click</a>

in the template (i.e. leave away the <%build_root_url%> bit.

For the first case use something like:

<a href="<%if d%><%db_cgi_url%>/page.cgi?page=mypage<%else%>/Static/mypage.html<%endif%>">click</a>

Does that make sense?

Re: [ManuGermany] PageBuilder Plugin In reply to
If you include the domain name, and have a link to a static page, then Links SQL messes up things (there is nothing I can do about this at the moment, that's the way it is handled internally by Links). In particular, if you have a link like:

<a href="http://www.domain.com/pages/mypage.html">

then in dynamic mode, this will be translated to

<a href="http://www.domain.com/cgi-bin/page.cgi?g=mypage.html&d=1">

(assuming that http://www.domain.com/pages is your build_root_url and http://www.domain.com/cgi-bin is your db_cgi_url). If you don't want this to happen, then you can use a link as follows:

<a href="/pages/mypage.html">

In dynamic mode, this will not be changed.

There is no other way at the moment to have both static an dynamic pagebuilder pages than the one I gave you. There might be an easier way in the next release of Links SQL, but it will come at the cost of speed.

I hope that helps.

I think the plugin could be ported to DBMan SQL without too much problems. A lot of the code is completely independent of Links SQL. The parts that depend on Links SQL would have to be modified a bit.

Re: [yogi] PageBuilder Plugin In reply to
Yogi:

An example would be as follows:-

I have a field in my links database 'isPick', which are basically 'recommended' programs. I have quite a few of these (around 50 or so). When these build on one page I get a 'huge' page. At the moment I am calling this via the search.cgi?isPick=Yes call. Whilst this does display them correctly it uses the default search_results.html template - and I would like to use something different for these type of program listings.

This concept could be used for any specific field in the Links Table. I am not sure the easiest way to call it, however would think (if it's possible), in the Condition field such as isPick = Yes. Then you could be given the option of 'how many links per page' eg. 10 (or alternatively it could pick up on the default). You would then be able to build pages on a range of different criteria. As I said above, whilst much of this functionality can be done via search.cgi, it is a little slower, and does not allow the added benefits of using custom templates for different fields.

I would see the possibilities of this added feature as limitless.

Hope I have explained things Crazy

Hi

there is no demo set up, because that would admin access for people trying it. All the pages on my website (see signature) that are not Links SQL or GForum pages have been built by the plugin.

The plugin can create separate pages based on the category and/or links database. Those pages can be created anywhere, i.e. also outside of your Links SQL directory.

Does that answer your questions?

Getting "What's New" to point to detailed pages In reply to
I have PageBuilder building detailed pages in the same directories as the category index pages. Works great.

The main reason I want detailed pages is because I'm using LSQL in part to build a dictionary/encyclopedia. So on the What's New pages, I just want to point people to the detailed page, rather than to a jump.cgi link (since for the definitions, there isn't really an external URL to jump to).

Problem: Getting the last part of the URL is easy: <%ID%>.html. But how do I get the rest of the path in the URL in link.html?

Re: [kjetilpa] PageBuilder Plugin - norwegian characters In reply to
You can select the filenames you want to have for your 'link' pages. Obviously, they have to be unique (i.e. every link has to have a unique name), and standard, you are only allowed to use the ID field of the links database for the filenames. So, you filename would e.g. be defined as:

<%LinkID%>-printable.html

which would the build pages as follows:

1-printable.html
2-printable.html
3-printable.html
etc. etc.

If you want to use your link titles as filenames, you would have to make sure that they are unique. Plus, I would need to implement some more checking on the filenames. The reason why the <%Title%> tag is by default not allowed in filenames is that you would need to be sure that all titles are unique and that they do not contain bad strings, such as '../../../../../etc/passwd'

Does that make sense?

You need Links SQL version 2.1.1.

The plugins uses a module that was added in Links SQL 2.1.1, and it therefore won't work in earlier versions of links.

Hey Yogi,

I am thinking of using LinskSQL on another site (I am a bit addicted to the database, now). Anyway, on this partcular site, I wish to have 3 category pages get printed (static site). I'd like 3 category.html templates: category1.html, category2.html, category3.html. In each template, I'd love to find code to show a sort based on a different field. So on each category page, there was a pull down menu that showed category/subcategory sort choices. But also is on a static site (and very server friendly)

If you don't have the last part about sorts, that would be fine as I have a request into Mel at GT for that part. But the first part, where the system prints 3 category.html templates? Can pagebuilder do that?

Thanks Yogi. Smile

Re: [Evoir] PageBuilder Plugin - install error In reply to
Hi

you can definitely build the three different category pages with the PageBuilder plugin. On every category page built with the plugin, you have all links and all subcategories as tags. There is one small thing that does not work yet: there is no spanning of category pages (i.e. all links in one category will be on the same page). This will be changed soon, with the next release of the plugin.

Does that answer you question?

When using both the attachments plugin and the pagebuilder plugin...

Is the attachments loop associated with a link supposed be available on the new link-associated page being made by pagebuilder?

I might be doing something wrong (likely) but I'm not able to get them to show up on the new page being created. I did a variable dump on the new page and the attachments are not listed.

Good question!

I have updated the Attachement plugin (version 1.1.3 is in the download area), and you can now use the following tag on a 'link' page built by the PageBuilder plugin:
Code:
<%Plugins::Attachment::User::get_link_attachments($ID)%>
where $ID is the ID of the link. This will provide the 'link_attachments' loop.

Great Plugin Ivan,

I have been using your plugin to create all of the additional pages for my site and it works really well.

One use I found, that others may find useful as well:

For my detailed pages, I wanted a list of other featured sites to appear. I had a global that worked fine, but I found that when I went to build the pages (over 1000) the new global slowed down the build time considerably.

It seemed a lot of work for Links to have to run the global for each detailed page, so I decided to use Pagebuilder. The tricky part is to have Pagebuilder build a static page into the default templates directory.

That way, a static page exists with the Featured links list that each detailed page can grab. It cuts the time for builds down substantially. About once a week I just re-build the pagebuilder pages and the static list is updated.

Re: [jgkiefer] PageBuilder Plugin In reply to
Hi

1. The plugin currently only works with one template set. I am working on making it more flexible, so that you will be able to define a pagebuilder page that belongs to different template sets.

2. The pages created by the plugin can be displayed in both static and dynamic mode. For every page you can select which modes you want to allow.

So I would be able to use it on one template set (what ever is set to default) either dynamic or static.

If I call different template sets they will display correctly just without any pages attached to pagebuilder?

Example- If I use pagebuilder for support pages (about us, news, etc) these pages will display correctly with only one template set (lets call them default for this example). If I call another template set (lets say yahoo for this example) the templates will behave as they should only without any of the pages from pagebuilder? I hope I am being clear with my question, the more I try to explain the more confusing it becomes. Crazy

Re: [jgkiefer] PageBuilder Plugin In reply to
The pagebuilder pages will always display with the default template set. That means that if you are browsing the directory in the 'fancy' template set, and you call a pagebuilder page, the pagebuilder page will be displayed in the 'default' template set. They will not be broken, but they will just not be in the 'fancy' template set.

The problem with multiple template sets is the following: all pagebuilder templates are stored in a directory called 'pagebuilder'. This template directory inherits templates from the default template directory, i.e. you can include any template from the default template directory, without recreating them in the 'pagebuilder' directory. It is not possible to dynamically switch the inheritance behaviour, i.e. it is not possible to include header files from several directories. Does that make sense?

In the future, each template directory (e.g. 'default' and 'fancy') will have it's own pagebuilder template directory, (i.e. 'default_pb' and 'fancy_pb'). When you define a page, you will be able to indicate for which template set the page will be built/displayed (e.g. for 'default' and/or 'fancy' and/or 'yahoo' etc).

Your existing templates will always behave correctly. If you include a link to a 'pagebuilder' page on a non-default template, the only thing that will happen is that the pagebuilder page will be displayed as part of the 'default' template, but everything else will remain unchanged.

Does that answer your question?

Well I don’t want to be critical of GT, but these forums have grown so much that finding updated information is sometimes very confusing. (Don’t get me wrong; GT has probably the most complete resource library, in these forums, that has ever been compiled by humans… hmmm, well most of them are anyway. Wink )

Your plugin is capable of so much that a list of functions as well as setup and syntax would be very helpful. I am confused with the static vs. dynamic setup, along with the correct url’s to call the pages. It would be, IMOP, very nice to have all the docs in one place and expand on the how to’s more.

Anyway, just a suggestion. I am sure I will get the hang of it after a little trial n error. Maybe I am making it harder that it is, I dono. But then again I have the tendency of making things complicated when they are in reality very simple. Crazy

Re: [jgkiefer] PageBuilder Plugin In reply to
I agree with you that the forums here are big, and it's sometimes hard to find precisely the thing you want. But you can always just ask, somebody might know.

If you want to display a pagebuilder page dynamically, use the following type of URL:

page.cgi?page=page_name

where 'page_name' is the unique name of the page (page name).

For building the same page statically, you have to enter the 'build directory' and 'build filename' of that page in the page definition.

Here it is also important to know that you can set the 'pagebuilder root directory' in the plugin options. This is the root directory for pagebuilder pages, and the 'build directory' you enter in a page definition is relative to that 'root directory'. (If you leave the option for the 'pagebuilder root directory' empty, then the plugin will take the 'links build root directory' as its root directory).

For example if you have

pagebuilder root directory => /home/domains/mydomain.com/www
build directory => foo
build filename => bar.html

then a page will be built at

/home/domains/mydomain.com/www/foo/bar.html.

Does that make sense?

I am having a hard time with this. Nothing seems to work for calling the includes file from the default template directory. Here is where I'm at:

I am trying to use PB to create a dynamic directory help page. So far I have tried -
Using simple, build no = can't find includes (looks in the PageBuilder template directory)
Using the other page options, build no = finds includes but sends error No page identification specified

It would seem that the quickest, simplest option would be to put a copy of my includes into the PB template directory until I get this sorted out?

In summery: I would like to build a dynamic that is not necessarly associated with categories, links, users, reviews, etc., just displaying text, and the ability to use default includes, (although access to DB tags would be helpful) is seems there is no way to do this without having a copy of the includes in the PageBuilder template directory.

Assuming that the correct way to do this is using "simple", either I am doing something wrong or there is a bug in the plugin? Frown
(I would bet it's the first)
Quote Reply
Re: [jgkiefer] PageBuilder Plugin In reply to
Yes, you should build a 'simple' page for this.

The plugin should be able to find all your includes in the default template directory. Can you make sure that in your PageBuilder template directory there exists a file called .tplinfo (note the leading dot), and that it contains
Code:
{ inheritance => '../default' }
where 'default' is the name of your default template directory (you may need to change it to something else.

Building File Name In reply to
I want to build some ststic pages. I noticed that when just adding the page name in the Build Filename field it just builds the file name without a file extension, i.e. pagename instead og pagename.html, however if I add a file extension to the page name in this field it builds the page with the specified file extension, i.e. adding .html builds pagename.html, adding .shtml builds pagename.shtml. This is really cool as I want some shtml pages. Will specifing a file extension (html, shtml, php) in the Build Filename field adversly effect Pagebuilder in ways not apparent (like in dynamic mode). I am hoping that this is okay as this is a very good feature.

Is there a way to link to PageBuilder pages so the page will be available in static AND dynamic mode?
Quote Reply
Re: [jgkiefer] Building File Name In reply to
You can choose any filename extension you like. Since the build filename is only used for building static pages, it will not have any negative effects on dynamic mode.

One (clumsy) way to link to a pagebuilder page both in dynamic and static mode is the following:
Code:
<a href="<%if d%>page.cgi?page=page_name<%else%>build_filename.html<%endif%>">PageBuilder Page</a>

Re: [yogi] PageBuilder Plugin In reply to
Thanks Ivan. That is good news.



About the forms, It looks as if I am going to be in a bad position (having to create numerous forms) within LinksSQL. This position is based upon a need for numerous, isolated forms for registration purposes for many different products and services. I was told that I would need to create a plugin potentially for each seperate registration form.

This is where my question comes in for PageBuilder. As I understand it I can create any type page with PageBuilder. The real trick it seems is having it work with a newly created form and having that form interact with LinksSQL.

I guess where this leads me is to ask if it is possible to create a "FormBuilder" as an add on to PageBuilder that will allow us the ability to create a form/add responses to a form/and track a form.

THis may be a seperate plugin or an extreme change in this one but I wanted your opinion as the plugins that you build are really rock solid.

Thanks in advance,

Brian

You can of course hard-code the forms on a PageBuilder page, but that's probably not what you want.

Do you want to generate the forms on the fly?

What script would get called as the response to a sent form?

I guess this should be a separate plugin. Contact me in a month or so, if you still need it by then.

A 'review' type page is basically one page per review. Therefore, the 'Review_Loop' tag would not make sense on such a page. What I say you can use review tags in a review page, I mean all fields that are in the 'Review' table (to see which fields are in the table, go to 'Database->Reviews->Properties").

The 'Review_Loop' tag is available on a 'link' type page, though.

1-. Just for Category and Simple Pages

2-. Link Information mostly, displayed using globals (but following standards, like using nh, mh variables to let a possible, future next_span module know how to span pages if you know what I mean. In fact, the global I use for displaying links is custom code I extracted from Build.pm

Hi Ivan:

I think I may have already made this suggestion before ... Sly

The ability to span pages would be a great enhancement to Pagebuilder. I principally use the 'simple' pages options. At the moment I generate my TOP TEN Programs on one page - that is quite workable, however where I also have RECOMMENDED Programs, these are substantially more than 10 - and therefore the page gets 'very big'.

Whilst I can do this with the Search function - which will split them up - it doesn't give me the flexibility that Pagebuilder would if it could span pages (ie. static pages - search engine friendly etc).

Whilst I see you have made the offer to do a 'custom' job - I believe a lot of people would like this added functionality. Maybe you could consider it for version 2 OR add a 'Pro' version that people could upgrade to for a reasonable price.

Just a few suggestions for you to ponder.

($nh > ($numhits/$maxhits - 7)) and ($lower = $lower - ($nh - int($numhits/$maxhits - 7) - 1));
$url = "";
# Then let's go through the pages and build the HTML.

There is a template tag <%sub_page_loop%> that you can use to build a list of all subpages. It doesn't contain the actual link of the sub pages, but you should be able to build the link to the various pages from the information you have.

Try e.g. something like

<a href="<%build_root_url%>/<%page_directory%>/<%page_filename%>"><%page_title%></a>

within

<%loop sub_page_loop%>

You should have 'build filename' and 'Mimetype' emtpy, it's not needed for this.

Yes I'm using htmldoc.

calling the page http://www.shop-netz.de/...amp;link=265&d=1

shows an empty page, even if I leave BuildFileName and mimeType empty.



By the way. I've seen the htmldoc doesn't convert ä ö ü ß &ouml; &auml; etc or ascii codes like &#174;

Is there a trick?

I just tested the PDF feature at my testing site (I hadn't been using HTMLDOC for a while), and everything works fine.

So your problems might have something to do with your installation of htmldoc.

I don't know about the problems with the Umlaute, you could have a look at the htmldoc documentation page at http://www.easysw.com/htmldoc/htmldoc.html, maybe you'll find something there.

Hi Yogi, I've played around a little bit and I think the problem hasn't to do anything with my htmldoc-installation at all. The PageBuilder-Plugin converts static-pages, so it works. But in dynamic mode the plugin doesn't create pages on the fly and/or it isn't possible to display already existing -pdf-files by page.cgi?page=....&d=1.

Hi Yogi,

I have a problem with category pages - it works ok but the problem is that when making a caregory page it uses a lot of resources as I have several thousand links in each category.

Where can I insert LIMIT 10 for example so it only output the latest 10 links?

I found a way to reduce the number of links actually displayed using row - but I don;t want to use the recources as it is a frequently used page.

Any suggestions are welcomed..

I'm considering modifying your plugin to allow the creation of aditional pages when building category pages (span pages) this will also allow me to have a certain degree of control when building directories with a very high number of links (I can implement a staggered build)

The question I have for you is related to your plugin development roadmap. It really doesn;t make sense for me to start making modifications in your Plugin if you have them planned in the near future. So, what I really want to know is that.. your intentions regarding the Pagebuilder plugin future developments.

I hope this is the correct place to ask a few pre-sales ?'s.

1. Can the Plugin be uninstalled if it doesn't work out w/o causing any problems or data corruption?

2. I've already made changes to existing fields in links and categories tables and added a few new fields. Is installation of Plugin going to cause any problems with my data structure changes?

3. Will this work with v2.1.2?

4. Does this make use of the users table? I am planning to use the vBulletin integration and I "guess" this option causes the existing users table to be bypassed in favor of the data in the vB database.

No quite sure what you mean - but you can make pages with the Pagebuilder and set it to be only viewable to registered users for example. So you can make pages for indidual users as well - if that is what you refer to.

Pagebuilder is excellent. Buy it.

IT DOES need an update, which will make it more excellent. But it does not crash, and appears to be pretty bug free.

IN the near future, I hope that Yogi adds:



1. The ability to allow building a file based on the site name with spaces turned into underlines or dashes. For example, for the link Titled "Gossamer Threads" , Link ID # 27 would be built as: /Site_Reports/Gossamer_Threads.html instead of /Site_Reports/Report_27.html

2. A way of choosing to NOT build a page , or limiting the page build to "x" links.

A checkbox to activate or deactivate that pages building and a

"build first X links" setting would be excellent.

3. A way of changing the build order of the PAgeBuilder pages.

Hi

thanks for the comments.

1. something similar to this will be added to the next release.

2. If you don't want to build a page, simply set 'Build Static' to 'No', and it won't be built. If you want to build only links with ID less than a certain number (let's say 100), set 'Build Condition' to 'ID < 100'

3. Why is changing the build order important for you?

1. Fantastic, how soon??Cool

2. Thanks for the tip about build static=no. Also thanks about the link < 100. I just figured that out yesterday. Still, a global or overriding "test" mode where all would build only x links, would be easier.

However, this trick is not always practical.

In our case, we build multiple pages (over 10 per link) so we would constantly have to go in and change the build info. So far, PageBuilder builds over 25 different pages:))

3. Why is changing the build order important? If build order was changable, we would not have to wait 30 minutes for the latest page test to build, as it could be put first in order. The last page entered into PageBuilder is always the LAST to be built!

4. Some basic random element functionality would be fantastic, also. That way, not all pages would be exactly the same.

Highest regards,

Hacking PageBuilder to get nice filenames In reply to
Hiya;

Who wants this:

14.html
(from ID/LinkID)
when they can have this:

Quality_Perl_Sites.html
(from Title)

as built filenames.

It can't be done as a plugin, as Pagebuilder will NOT run/compile a global.

However, you inspired me to try to solve this.

There is a solution if you are willing to hack his plugin.

Two changes are needed.

1. To make "<%Title%>" to be passable (there is a list!) into the link page type build routine.

2. The second change is just as you had in your global - replace spaces with underlines.

Steps:

Edit PageBuilder.pm (uninstall, hit edit, then edit again next to PageBuilder.pm) 71870 bytes in ver. 1.04


1. In the sub init routine , the top line must be edited to be as follows:

$PAGEBUILDER_FIELDS = { link => { filename => [qw/LinkID Full_Name Title/],

I added in the Full_Name and Title variables.
Once you do this, you can use <%Title%> in the filename field. But the spaces in the title will remain. To get rid of the spaces, I used the previous published routine.

2. Edit the sub _build_link_page subroutine. It's about 40% of the way into the file.
For dynamic displays, there will be another routine to edit. This covers static pages only.

Just before this line:

$filename ||= $CFG->{build_index};

add in this line:

$filename =~ y/ \t\r\n?"'/__/d;

to change spaces to a underline.
(thanks to fmp)

3. Hit UPDATE, then install or re-install the plugin.

Notes:
Backup your PageBuilder file first.
I am NOT a PERL programmer. I don't know PERL.
I only hack...
I hope it is ok with Yogi publishing this hack!

Re: [CrazyGuy] PageBuilder Plugin >>> 2 questions In reply to
Edit: Having reread your post, I'm guessing that maybe I did misunderstand if you want them on non-links pages!

If I understand you correctly, you can do this with a simple global:

sub {
my $tags = shift;
my $cat_db = $DB->table('Category');
$cat_db->select_options ('ORDER BY Name');
my $sth = $cat_db->select ( { FatherID => 0}, ['Full_Name','Name'] );
my $output="";
while (my ($root_cat,$full_name) = $sth->fetchrow_array) {
my $url = $cat_db->as_url($root_cat);
$output .= qq~<a href="$CFG->{build_root_url}/$url/"><b>$full_name</b></a><br>~;
}
return $output;
}

Using Pagebuilder to make static pages in a hashed directory structure? In reply to
I'm still working on a problem mentioned in http://www.gossamer-threads.com/...orum.cgi?post=232182 back in February.

It just occurred to me that Pagebuilder might hold the solution ...

In brief, our categories are not really categories at all -- they have no hierarchical structure, and any attempt to impose one would be unworkably artificial. It would be better to think of records rather than categories. LSQL is so much more developed than DbmanSQL (URL checking, plugins, better search, etc) that I think it is worth exploring an LSQL solution.

We need a hashed directory structure with depth = 4, eg: ../a/b/c/d/ and within each leaf directory, up to 100 pages, eg: ../a/b/c/d/index00.html to ../a/b/c/d/index99.html -- this structure would allow us up one million records (much more than we will ever get to -- 150,000 is a more realistic maximum).

We can't use LSQL in the normal way to build a directory with depth = 6, eg: ../a/b/c/d/e/f/ because there is nothing at the intermediate depths, eg: at level 'c' there is nothing at all, so we neither need nor want to have index pages at those levels, as they would be meaningless.

So I'm wondering if Pagebuilder could ...

* Using normal LSQL tables, build static category pages in a directory specified in a category column (the record would say where to build the page).

* Build only pages that were new or updated

Here is the difficult part -- if the pages were built, how difficult would it be to search them? What we would be hoping for is search on category data as much as link data.

In Reply To:

You can build static pages for all categories with PageBuilder. The build directory and filename can contain all the fields in the Category table. I thinks this is precisely what you want.

In Reply To:
* Build only pages that were new or updated
When you do a 'Build Changed' of your Links directory, also the PageBuilder plugin will only build the changed links/categories.

I hope this helps.

Yes, it helps a lot -- Pagebuilder is a remarkable plugin.

No problem building the pages how and where we want them (though we don't yet know how we will obtain a value for the 'destination directory' column).

One problem remains -- it's not something that can be fixed in Pagebuilder, but maybe other pagebuilder users have already done it -- how can we get search.cgi to return links to the Pagebuilder pages instead of the normal LSQL category pages?

This can be done quite easily. On search_results.html, you need to use <%loop category_results_loop%>, and you can easily construct the path to the PageBuilder category page.

Re: [yogi] Using Pagebuilder to make static pages in a hashed directory structure? In reply to
Thanks Yogi ... this is turning out to be much easier than we imagined.

What we are actually trying to do is take a database of information about people (some of which have multiple links, but most have none) and present them in LSQL with its advanced features.

Each person record would be one LSQL category. As there is no logical categorisation scheme, DbmanSQL initially seemed like a good choice, but we can't quite get it to do what we want, and it does not build static pages (an option we require at this stage).

However, a combination of LSQL + Pagebuilder now looks like a very good alternative to DbmanSQL (assuming we can tidy up the remaining loose ends).

Alternatively, we could envisage using DbmanSQL (or some other database system) to acquire new records, and write a bit of Perl to insert them into LSQL at regular intervals.

The columns required to build the directory structure can be calculated when a new record is added, eg: if the new record has ID 9876, the static page should be ../0/0/9/8/76.html, so we calculate and store 0/0/9/8 and 76 in two columns to be passed to Pagebuilder build directory and build filename

Hi-

I'm using the PageBuilder plugin, and it works great. With regard to the Page Condition, I would like to be able to build static pages only for those pages where a certain field has a value. In other words, if the field is empty then I don't want it to build that page. What should I enter into the Page Condition to make this happen if the Field is called User_Introduction? Would it be something like:

if User_Introduction is Not Null

I'm not sure the syntax that could make this happen.

The message you get is due to a bug in a GT module.

However, the message should only be written to your error log file, not to the screen, maybe your webserver is not configured properly....

As a quick fix, open admin/GT/Plugins.pm, and replace
Code:
$self->debug ("Plugin pre $hook_name stopped further plugins.");
with
Code:
$self->debug ("Plugin pre $hook_name stopped further plugins.") if ($self->{_debug});
Note that there are two points in the Plugins.pm file, where you have to do the replacement.

Thanks for the lead. This is a major bugaboo if this just happens like that. The plugin.cfg backup did not help. I had to totally delete the plugin directory and contents and download and reinstall every plugin. Not good.

Thanks for the help anyway.

I've had this happen before. It seems to be a bug when you press the INSTALL link more than once in a row. It gets rid of plugins.cfg :(

Re: [Andy] PageBuilder Plugin >>> 2 questions In reply to
I'm trying to build a conditional plugin page that will only build pages for the root categories.

I have created a new column called Build_pagelinks enum with yes/no as the options.

I create a page in page build which I can get to work in dynamic mode without the condition. But when I try to build the page conditionally "Build_pagelinks=Yes either in static or dynamic mode it doesn't build.

I'm calling in dynamic mode like this

/cgi-bin/page.cgi?page=pagelinks;category=XX

Thanks for the help

Make sure there are spaces in your condition, e.g.

and not

Build_pagelinks=Yes

Re: [romanslon] Hacking PageBuilder to get nice filenames In reply to
Your title probably contains the character '/', that's why it won't work (and that's why the plugin usually doesn't allow the <%Title%> tag in the filename!

The easiest fix is probably to remove the '/' from your title!

Links in subcategory listing In reply to
We have two parts of our site that have different looks (and even functionality - one part is built in JSP, the other is static HTML).

Using PageBuilder, I'm outputting category pages into the two different templates - and two different directory paths.

The problem comes with the sub-category links on the new category pages - they use the default build_root_path. What I'd like them to use is the path of the new directory. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks!

You can define a 'link' type page, and put a build condition

First of all, a 'category' type page, will build pages for all categories in your directory (or a selection of them if you use a build condition).

You have to give select an unique name for each category page, so for your 'build directory' field, you should use either

<%Full_Name%>

or

<%ID%>

as I indicated in the previous post.

I hope this helps.

It sounds like a great plugin. I have read all the posts in this thread trying to find out how it handles layout and format of page content, but didn't find it. I visited your site and found that content of some pages have headings and bullet listing. How is this implemented? by tags? I want to use this plugin with linksql to build the whole site which contains many article pages outside linksql. If your plugin can easily handle text formatting, I will definitely buy it.

How do you input the content of a page in admin interface? For example, I want a sentence to be a heading, do you input the text as html code like <h1>Some Sentence</h> or use some other tags specified in the template.

The Paths of Yoga
There are said to be 4 main paths (Margas), according to the Bhagavad Gita, by which to reach the ultimate goal of Yoga - "Kaivalya." There is the path of Knowledge (Jnana Marga) in which one learns to discriminate between what is real and what is illusory, the path of selfless work (Karma marga), the path of devotion (Bhakti Marga) and the path of control of the mind (Yoga Marga) where all the activities of the mind and consciousness are studied and brought under control. From these have come the various paths of yoga which can be followed.
  • Raja yoga involves mastery of the mind and senses in Samadhi; essentially the advanced aspects of Patanjali's astanga yoga.
  • Hatha yoga is the yoga of the will which involves cultivating ones energy to arouse Kundalini primarily by means of asana and pranayama.
  • Mantra yoga involves reciting sacred syllables to reach perfection.
  • Laya yoga involves absorption in god to experience ultimate bliss.
  • Bhakti yoga requires absolute devotion to god to achieve the ultimate goal.
  • Karma yoga achieves this through selfless work without thought of personal reward.
  • Jnana yoga is the yoga of knowledge cultivating the discrimination between spiritual reality and the illusion of the material world.

I installed this plugin and still don't quite understand why you want to build extra category or link pages, because linksql will build those pages, can somebody give me a situation that needs to build another category page for a category, althugh building simple pages makes sense to me.

Another question is if I have built a category page for a category, will linksql know that there is a extra category page there (which means pagebuilder passes a varible to linksql) and then I can edit my cateogy template to show the url if there is a extra cateogry page link this <%if extra_catgorypage%><%url_to_the_page%><%endif%>

Hi katabd ,

I know that you can put a url for a link page such as reporting dead link for every link, but if the link pages are built under some condition and some links don't have that page, so you have to use IF in link.html to only display the url IF a link page is there. Will pagebuilder pass such tag to link.html?

No you do not...

Just add a new field to the links table called build and set it to Yes/No.

And that should do it with out the need to any if statements..

I see ... In that case, I think PageBuild plugin should hooked to site_html_link, whenever site_html_link is run PageBuild will pass a variable to it saying that "hi, I have a extra page for that link or category, please add the url to that page or do something else". So you don't need to modify any code or table, just modify your category or links template.

Hi Yogi,

I´m very interested in your PageBuilder Plugin.
I have the latest Links-SQL, the latest G-Community and the latest G-Forum installed on my server.

I need a CMS-system for the "Detailed-Pages".
The question is:
I would need a CMS-system where my customers can log-in and build these "Detailed Pages" (for example 5 different Detailed-Pages like "About us", "our pictures", "map how to find us", etc.) by themselves. Is it possible with G-Community that a link-owner can use his Username and Password and log-in into a CMS where he can manage his "Detailed Pages" (call it his "own" small website) ?

If this is not possible with your plugin - could you customize this for me ? Or is there another plug-in which can do this ?


Many thanks,

Erich

  • or can is use a tag i.e. < % PageBuilderPage 1 % >
I hope the answer will be tags cause it would be useful in case of renaming, relocating pages to avoid broken links Wink

I had the same problem at some point with a beta version of Gossamer Links 3.0. After upgrading to the final release of GLinks 3, the problem is no longer there. I really don't know what the problem was.

You can safely re-install the plugin, as long as you don't overwrite the existing page definitions (you'll be asked that when you re-install). Also when you uninstall, select "no" when asked whether you want to delete pages created with the plugin.

I hope this helps.

The pagebuilder pages will always display with the default template set. That means that if you are browsing the directory in the 'fancy' template set, and you call a pagebuilder page, the pagebuilder page will be displayed in the 'default' template set. They will not be broken, but they will just not be in the 'fancy' template set.

The problem with multiple template sets is the following: all pagebuilder templates are stored in a directory called 'pagebuilder'. This template directory inherits templates from the default template directory, i.e. you can include any template from the default template directory, without recreating them in the 'pagebuilder' directory. It is not possible to dynamically switch the inheritance behaviour, i.e. it is not possible to include header files from several directories. Does that make sense?

In the future, each template directory (e.g. 'default' and 'fancy') will have it's own pagebuilder template directory, (i.e. 'default_pb' and 'fancy_pb'). When you define a page, you will be able to indicate for which template set the page will be built/displayed (e.g. for 'default' and/or 'fancy' and/or 'yahoo' etc).


Is it nowadays possible to define the template-set for a single pagebuilder-template? I couldn't find any functionallity/instructions how to do it.

Hi
Thanks for the reply. You don't seem to be able to buy it anymore and no response from the author.

Anyone know if it still around?

Thanks

Hi Manu:

I know this is an old post, and you've probably already solved it, but the easiest way to use alternate template sets with PageBuilder is as follows:-

Option 1:

<%include /use/full/path/to/include_file.html%>

Option 2:

Edit the .tplinfo file as follows:-

The below assumes you are using the luna template set and you also have includes in your local directory.

{ inheritance => '../luna','../luna/local' }

The beauty of option 2 is that PageBuilder firstly checks the /luna directory and if the include does not exist then checks the /luna/local directory. I've tested this and it works perfectly.

By using option 2 you can use the normal methods of <%include include_file%>.

I know there has been some lengthy debate about this in other threads and hope this is of some help.


Regards,


Clint.

Hi,

I'm interested in buying the PageBuilder plugin, but this doesn't seem to be possible through Yogi's website anymore and he doesn't answer emails.

Any ideas?

Sorry for the troubles.

The plugin is still available, and it works perfectly with the latest version of Gossamer Links.

My PayPal account should now work again, so you can again buy the PageBuilder plugin.

Hi Yogi,

Thank you to give news.

But, I must say that I currently do not recommend the purchase of your plugins.

For example, your plugin attachment poses many problems.

I contacted you on several occasions, but you do not answer. Mad

You think of bringing a help again ?

Thank,
