Sonntag, den 27. Juli 2008

The latest post from Frederic works very well and your SmartEdit users still will be able to reach the pages inside the RedDot CMS. But for usability reasons you should extend it just for one more step. Let's take the part marked above with "... show navigation ..." as the following code:

<li><a href="linked_page.html">Linktext</a></li>

Using the RedDot CMS Query Language (RQL) outside from RedDot

Donnerstag, den 6. März 2008

Hello RedDot CMS partners! And hello RedDot developers! A little snippet to play with. Just for those who did not know until now.

After that "include" the DLL inside your Scriptpage (i prefer .NET) with:

Montag, den 28. Januar 2008

Sharon from the Google Grous “RedDot CMS” asked me, how to hide your breadcrumb (or any other element) on a page (e.g. the “home” of your website). So here’s a short description using render tags and a simple query for creating a XHTML-valid breadcrumb navigation:



 <query valuea="<%inf_pageGUID%>" operator="!=" valueb="String:123CDDB..">

  <htmltext><ul id="breadcrumb"></htmltext>

  <foreach itemname="item" object="Context:CurrentIndex.GetPathArray()">
