ManagerManager 0.3.0

ManagerManager 0.3.0

Released Jul 04, 2008 by ncrossland

ManagerManager allows you to:

  • Change field names
  • Hide fields
  • Change the help text for fields
  • Rename tabs
  • Hide tabs
  • Create new tabs
  • Move fields to different tabs
  • Inherit field values from parent documents
  • Prefill date values with customisable values
  • Link fields together so their values always match
  • Rename and move sections of the document editing page
  • Add widgets to Manager fields - e.g. Del.icio.us-like tag interface, color picker, image preview

All these features can be enabled for any manager role, any template, or any combination of these. The plugin was inspired by HideManagerFields by Brett @ The Man Can. It uses the Jquery library to modify the document management pages after they have been created (no server side transformations are done). It improves on HideManagerFields by adding a standardised API for manipulating fields, adds many new features, and removed the nasty "jump" and flash of hidden fields while the Javascript is manipulated.

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