Grouping Multibox links in posts.




Since v4.0.0.507 new setting for the blog is added: Grouping of Multibox.

Enabled by default (to keep previous blog multibox handling), this option can be found in the Online Administration section of the blog, Settings tab.

When this is enabled, all element that have multibox and are from the same type * will be grouped into same box with navigation to loop among them.

When this is disabled, every multibox element will pop-up in separate box and no navigation among the other similar elements will be possible.

 

*Different types of multibox elements (image thumbnails, pure links, etc) are grouped separately from each other by the multibox handler. In other words - you can put both thumbnail and a link into same box and navigate through them.

Using Blog Views Feature




with Blog Views you can create separate layout options for Blog (to display blog entries with different layout than main blog layout)

 

to use Blog Views, add one or more View pages in treeview explorer:

 

add view

 

after you add view page, specify options in view settings to make view different than main view:

view settings

 

name you chooose for blog view will be used to access this view in your blog :

for example, to access blog view on page index.php, add url and append name of view :   index.php?myview

(you can also use internal url picker in url dialog to select available views)

 

example default blog view

example alternative blog view

 

you can also link blog view from menu with external url option on page settings panel --> advanced

 

Other option you have with the views is the blog online settings. You can set default view for category, entry, search and tags. This way does not involve URL changes.

 

tip: you can also use views to show short version of article in main view and full article in another view:

on main blog page, add hyperlink : read more and use macro : http://www.ezgenerator.com/howto.php?entry_id=1344965509&title=using-blog-views-feature&compact  (replace &compact with name of your own view) as url

Flash tags cloud in blog/podcast




This option is no longer developed. We do not recommend you install and use it. If you are currently using this option, please consider disabling it.

 

 

 

How to install the flash tags cloud:

  • Download WP Cumulus flash plugin at WP CUMULUS Flash tags cloud
  • Unzip the archive and manually upload file tagcloud.swf in folder extdocs/ on server.
  • Open your project in EZGenerator, go to the Blog/Podcast page and insert
    macro from Fields panel.

 

If you want to change the tags cloud size or colors, here is the list of parameters you can use:

%FLASH_TAGS_CLOUD(width,height,tag color,tcag olor2,hover color,background color,transparency,tspeed,distr)%

 

  • Width - width of tag cloud.
  • Height - height of tag cloud.
  • Tag color - tag color.
  • Tag color - tag color for less important tags. If supplied, tags will get a color from a gradient between both colors based on their popularity.
  • Hover color - tag mouseover/hover color.
  • Transparency - is set to true will set background transparency for the tags cloud. Possible values: true/false.
    Tspeed - determines the speed of the sphere’s rotation in percentage. The default is 100, higher numbers increase the speed.
  • Distr - even tag distributiosn along sphere. If set to true, the tags are distributed evenly over the sphere’s surface. Possible values: true/false.

 

Example: %FLASH_TAGS_CLOUD(300,200,e520ae,91cee3,ffcc00,ffffff,true,100,true)%

 

To use the plugin for other languages (that has special non ASCII characters), you’ll need to get version of tagcloud.swf that supports this.

For some languages such version is already available (Russian, Hebrew, Turkich, Polish) here, for others you can prepare such version by yourself following the instructions at:

How to add more characters to the Flash tags cloud

When you have proper version of tagcloud.swf, simply upload it on server in extdocs/ folder to replace the default one.
