(posted also as comment in Edit-In-Place topic)

Since you like to promote Cobalt frontend editing and management, what about frontend editing for Category description? Maybe for admins and moderators.

This would allow more use and control over the header area. Currently, if you want an editable pretty intro in frontend... you have to choose different workarounds:

  • use NoNumber ArticlesAnywhere plugin in description field
  • use a 3rdparty module, which allows to add and edit a J! core article (requires module position above main content, and module assignment in backend)

Which leads me too a second idea:

An option in section/category parameters, that allows to select a certain J! or Cobalt article as description. Or better do this on template level? Then editing is possible, but not really in-place.

EDIT: Related link leads to correct new Cobalt powered Forum topic.

pepperstreet * use NoNumber ArticlesAnywhere plugin in description field * use a 3rdparty module, which allows to add and edit a J! core article (requires module position above main content, and module assignment in backend)

Which leads me too a second idea:

An option in section/category parameters, that allows to select a certain J! or Cobalt article as description. Or better do this on template level? Then editing is possible, but not really in-place.

Another similar idea raised in my mind. J!3.3+ is going to get frontend editing for modules... (currently only by re-direct to backend module manager). But if Custom HTML module gets edit-in-place, it would be nice to load a module/moduleposition on top of the section. In other words, add a parameter to markup-template, where you can select a certain module/position.

Maybe a good idea in general to have optional module-positions in all Cobalt default layouts!?! = great flexibility, modules in Cobalt context with no need for J! module manager and Menu-Item assignments.

have to think. There is a need for practical example to understand it better.

Sergey practical example to understand it better

  • Cobalt templates with optional, special module-positions. i.e.: cobaltSecName, cobaltPos1, cobaltPos2, cobaltSecHead, cobaltArticleHead, cobaltArticleBottom, cobArticleFooter, cobArtLeft, cobaltArtRight
    (Comparable to JomSocial templates, which also provide special positions)

  • Use Cases e.g. frontend editing of section header/description, Ads/Banner display

  • Display Cobalt modules in Article full-view context, without need for main template positions and J! module manager. i.e. records module and related content.
