Good Meeting folks. Some really juicy topics in there. I’m sorry I missed it. It was a busy week and I just didn’t see the reminder anywhere. I never subscribe to email lists but I feel like if I could get a notification in my inbox for this meeting I would subscribe.
So excited about the tag and category filters. I spend all too much time writing custom filters with liquid.
Re @Adam.Wilson site template. I want this %100. More than anything I want to see all the things you are doing. Every time you drop a code snipped I’m always impressed. Thanks for being so generous with that @Adam.Wilson
re tutorial videos for end users My basic bases that I cover:
• How to login to the admin interface of your website
• How to make basic text edits to webpages (nICE and WYSWYG)
When the nice editor is appropriate. How to navigate, add styling update links.
WYSIWYG: I go over all the tools and warn to avoid styling tools generally.
• How to update SEO title and description
• How to upload images/files
What is a module
• How update/add/edit modules
• How to update workflows to determine who will receive email notification
• How to add/edit admin users
There are more topics that I’ll go into for specific users, but I’ll cover at least these with most users.
re File API I have lots of sites that clients have lots of images of documents that they upload. I will definitely use this feature I just haven’t built one since this feature has been release. I’ve mostly been building pamphlet sites.
@Adam.Wilson re adding the mock ups to the site via file upload. This is exactly what we mostly do. I’d love to see your example of how you’re doing this.
re. Image filters. Thanks for the tip. Funny I’ve demo’d this to clients and it didn’t twig that I could access all of those. I’ve just been using CSS filters, but this image processor probably more backwards compatible (I always need to use a JS fallback for older browsers). Thanks for the reminder
re Blog. We’re just using a custom module. Are there any advantages to using the blog module?
@Adam.Wilson I love your idea of having custom pages in the admin. That’s fantastic. Let’s get that in the backlog. It wouldn’t be a common use case for us. But the problems that it would solve would be big ones, that previously required replicated back end functionality in the front end. Come to think of it there would be lots of use cases. I could integrate training documentation right into the admin. That would be great.
re System emails. Is anybody doing any customization beyond styling on these? I’ve been pretty lazy with this actually and it tends to be the last thing I do and sometimes doesn’t get done beyond just making sure it works.
