Customized Article Block
« on: March 02, 2010, 04:48:46 PM »
This is a replacement for sp_articles.
It reproduces some of the functionality of Recent Posts Board News, but is based on Article Categories instead of Boards. The block "template" is different from the Recent Posts Board News "template", and can be customized with CSS.
 
In general, Recent Posts Board News may be preferable, because it is easier on the users. And easier for the admin to maintain through SimplePortal upgrades.
 
Behavior of existing article blocks will be unaffected.
I have just replaced the code I posted here earlier with an improved version, and have included a version for SMF 2.0
I have provided two versions of this function
* SMF 1.1.11 version
* SMF 2.0 RC3 version
Both of these have been tested against the upcoming SimplePortal 2.3.2 release (currently undergoing debug testing)
 
This mod adds the following features:     
 
       
  • Choose to limit articles in block to one category, or default to "all"
  • Choose to display message body or default to -- a "regular" article block display                       
    • Choose a truncation length, or leave blank for default -- no truncation or '' truncation
    • [print], [Read More], and [Comment] "buttons"
Within the new "articles with message body" display, I have used 4 new CSS classes
                   
  • sp_articles_withbody_title
  • sp_articles_author
  • sp_articles_body
  • sp_articles_more
You may add some CSS to style.js for theme-specific style effects.  Below is a CSS sample.

I have used Simple Portal Image resizing on [img] in the message body.
I have attempted to control the size of any embedded objects ([pdf], AEVA) with CSS. This is more or less successful, and requires a CSS file, portal_resize.css in Themes/default. The php files are attached. The CSS is below.

Code: (CSS for the message bodies) [Select]
.sp_articles_withbody_title
{
/* more or less like h2 */
   font-size: 150%;
   align: center;
}
.sp_articles_author
{
   font-size: smaller;
   font-variant: small-caps;
   align: center;
}
.sp_articles_body, .sp_articles_more
{
}

Code: [Select]
/* 
.sp_articles_body img
{
   max-height: 100px;
   width: auto;
}
html .sp_articles_body img
{
   width: expression( document.body.clientWidth > 99 ? "100px" : "auto" ); /* sets max-width for IE<8 */
}   
*/

.sp_articles_body embed, .sp_articles_body object
{
   max-height: 200px;
   max-width: 200px;
}
html .sp_articles_body embed, html .sp_articles_body object
{
   width: expression( document.body.clientWidth > 199 ? "200px" : "auto" ); /* sets max-width for IE<8 */
}
html .sp_articles_body embed, html .sp_articles_body object
{
   height: expression( this.scrollHeight > 199 ? "200px" : "auto" ); /* sets max-height for IE<8 */
}
.sp_articles_body table.maeva, #saeva1
{
   max-height: 200px;
   max-width: 200px;
}
html .sp_articles_body table.maeva, html #saeva1
{
   width: expression( document.body.clientWidth > 199 ? "200px" : "auto" ); /* sets max-width for IE<8 */
}
html .sp_articles_body table.maeva, html #saeva1
{   
   height: expression( this.scrollHeight > 199 ? "200px" : "auto" ); /* sets max-height for IE<8 */
}
-------------------
Improvements to the SMF2.0 version now have it passing HTML validation.

There is no abstract.  The article block shows SimplePortal articles, which are simply "new topic" posts that have been added to the Articles list.
 
You have two options for showing a shortened version of the article.
1) If you use the  tag to show how much of the article to show
2) If you use the truncate parameter of this block, all articles without the  tag will be truncated to no more than the number of characters you specify. If you leave truncate blank, you will get no truncation.

I meant a truncated part of the article as an abstract... ok that's good.

but i didn't understand how to install it.

where do I have to put that code?

Itried to replace sp_articles function in PortalBlocks.php, and added CSS code to Portal.css in the default theme directory, but it doesn't work. got a title and a blank page

I am sorry I did not state that the posted version of sp_articles is only for SMF 1.1.x.
I have updated my original post to contain this important information.
 
There are a small number of changes required for SMF 2.0, but they make a big difference.
 
Do you still have a copy of your old PortalBlocks, SimplePortal 2.3.1 for SMF 2.0RC3?
 
I would like to test the the version of sp_articles for SMF 2.0RC3, and will post it when I am certain of it.
 
I am sorry my original posting led you astray. I will post to this topic again when the SMF 2.0 version is ready.

no problem, really... i've got a test site where to try any new mod.

I'd really like to have that mod working in SMF2.0, I use articles to show news in sportal, and now I'm using board news block for it, but it's not so good as your modded articles block.


but my php's not so good :)

it seems to work in SMF 2.0 RC3 and SP 2.3.1

it has no integration in aeva and no categories options, but that's all i can do.

The thing that makes my mod no good for SMF 2.0 is the way the sql query is written.
You can see the difference in SimplePortals versions fo sp_articles for SMF 1.x  and SMF 2.0
 
The calls to execute the query and fetch the results have changed, and the SQL query needs to be rewritten and tested.
 
I will be happy to share some code with you when I think it is 'beta test' ready. It would be no help to either of us if I give you something completely untried.
 
I'm glad you are eager for the upgrade. I will let you know soon.

I have now done some testing on a version for SMF 2.0, and I think it will work.
 
My recent experience tells me it is preferable to use Recent Posts/Topics in "full" mode Board News if at all possible, because it is much easier on the content providers. You can even select a single message ID to display.
 
If you simply MUST collect stuff from a number of boards into one Article Category for Portal or page=display, this mod is for you.

Re: Customized Article Block
« Reply #15 on: April 16, 2010, 05:43:22 AM »
can i help with my modified one? i added choice of cutting off bbcodes, author and images from block:
i also modified truncate function to cut only after a space.

ehm... it's in italian language...

Code: [Select]
function sp_articles($parameters, $id, $return_parameters = false)

//
//  * Display articles from all categories, or limit to a single category (code provided by SiNan on Simpleportal forum
//  * Display article title, author, etc. only, or display truncated article text
//  * Truncated article text length (in characters) -- truncation performed by sp_truncatetext
//
// New CSS classes used:
// sp_articles_withbody_title
// sp_articles_author
// sp_articles_body
// sp_articles_more
//
//
