Collections 1.2.0-pl

Released Mar 13, 2014 by theboxer

Collections is a MODX Revolution Extra that adds a custom CollectionContainer resource class with the following behaviour:

  • Any direct child resource will be hidden from the Resource Tree in the Manager, and listed in a grid view (similar to Articles) under a dedicated "Children" tab.
  • Any children that themselves have children will be shown in the Tree, to be managed normally.

This version is deprecated. It is recommended to use a newer version.

Installation Instructions

Install via Package Management


Sub Collections



Just like the MODX Resource Tree itself, Collections supports nesting. You can create a Collection within another Collection. Sub Collection Containers will be displayed in the resource tree and their children will be displayed in the grid view.



Drag n Drop



You can drag n drop Resources into a Collections container and if they don't have children of their own they will be listed in the grid. If they do have children, they'll just remain in the Tree as usual.



Alternatives



@goldsky recently released an Extra called "GridClassKey" that does similar things, without drag n drop and some other logic. BUT it does sport some very nifty Ext JS features, like Advanced Search of items in the grid. Don't you love options?

  • Added ability to search via created by full name
  • Added ability to search via created by username
  • Fixed switching child between two Collections
  • Fixed switching great parent to Collections when moving last child
  • Fixed child name after creating a duplicate
  • Added drag & drop sort by menuindex
