Playing Peek-a-Boo: Hiding pages with the Navigation Manager

Sonntag, den 27. Juli 2008

There might be several reasons for hiding pages in the navigation structure, but they have to be connected to the navigation list, to show the website’s navigation correctly:

„Footer pages“ like „Imprint“ or „Terms of use“
Pages for login, error handling (e.g. for 404 or 403 errors), search results
A new navigation branch (e.g. a new product group, [...]

New RedDot CMS plug-in: Clipboard Publisher released!

Samstag, den 19. Juli 2008

As Markus mysteriously disappeared from the Net, I have to write this shameless self marketing rant myself. This is part three of my first "RedDot triology":
With this plug-in you can publish all selected pages in the clipboard at once and choose publishing settings for all affected pages globally. You can choose to publish related [...]

Never touch a running search and replace - or switch to another language variant

Sonntag, den 29. Juni 2008

Don RedDot fighting against the RedDot CMS windmill
Just quick and dirty the ticket content as a citation, which reached me yesterday:

The RedDot CMS in three sentences - Das RedDot CMS in 3 Sätzen

Samstag, den 17. Mai 2008
