Features

The adminalphabetical extension contains some modified templates for the eZ publish admin interface. In these templates, the google-like navigation is replaced with a navigation based on the Latin alphabet. This makes it easier to step through a large amount of nodes which are typically sorted by name, e.g. a list of users.

License

adminalphabetical is copyright © 2006 SCK•CEN and is distributed under the GNU GPL.

It was written by Kristof Coomans.

Demo

A live demo will be available soon.

Requirements

adminalphabetical is compatible with the following versions of eZ publish:

  • 3.7.6 or newer in the 3.7 branch
  • 3.8 (coming soon)

Installation

Download

You can download this extension from it's contribution page on ez.no.

Installing the extension

Follow the steps described in the eZ publish technical manual to extract and activate the extension.

Override templates

Now make template overrides for the specific nodes where you want to have alphabetical navigation.
An example for a node with id 100:

[browse_node_100]
Source=content/browse.tpl
MatchFile=content/browse_alphabetical.tpl
Subdir=templates
Match[node]=100
 
[children_node_100]
Source=children.tpl
MatchFile=children_alphabetical.tpl
Subdir=templates
Match[node]=100

Technical notes

During the development of adminalphabetical, bug 8140 was discovered. Due to this bug, the override for the browse template doesn't work on eZ publish versions prior to 3.7.6.
