OpenCrypt Article Manager Add-On

The Article Manager add-on allows you to present any number of articles to your users, for example for news or a blog. The system allows for user comments and for users to submit new articles and revisions.

 



The Article management system has three main areas: Current Content Structure, Submissions Pending Approval and Comments Pending Approval.

Current Content Structure allows you to setup article categories and new articles.

Submissions Pending Approval allows you to manage revisions to articles, and any new articles submitted by your users.

Comments Pending Approval allows you to approve and deny any comments your users have made to your existing articles.

 



Current Content Structure

The current layout of your articles is displayed by default, with categories and articles in bold forming the main branches of the tree.


To add a category click the 'Add Category' button, you will be presented with the following fields:

Content Group: allows you to group categories and articles, two example uses of this would be if you were communicating to more than one site, or if you have distinct groups of customers. The article manager frontend can be easily customised to display only one content group.

Parent Category: allows you to create main categories, or sub-categories. For a main category, leave this set to 'Top Category'. For a sub-category, select the category you wish to be the parent.

Category Name: enter a meaningful name for the new category here.

Category Description: allows you to define the description of the category, using either text, HTML, or the built-in WYSIWYG editor.

When you are finished click the 'Add Category' button.


To modify a category or sub-category select the radio button of the category you wish to modify, and click the 'Modify' button.

To remove a category or sub-category select the radio button of the category you wish to remove, and click the 'Remove' button. Removing a category with articles defined will also remove those articles.


To add an article select the radio button for the category or sub-category you wish to add the article to, and then click the 'Add Article' button, you will be presented with the following fields:

Category: this is the category you chose for the question to be entered into.

Article Title: enter a meaningful title for the article here.

Secure Article: allows you to grant access to the article based on your subscription groups.

Article Body: this is where the main body of your article should be entered, using either text, HTML, or the built-in WYSIWYG editor.

When you are finished click the 'Add FAQ' button.


To modify an article select the radio button of the article you wish to modify, and click the 'Modify' button.

To remove an article select the radio button of the article you wish to remove, and click the 'Remove' button.

 



Submissions Pending Review

Any submissions awaiting approval will be displayed here, with date submitted and the details of the new submission.


To review a submission select the radio button for the submission to be reviewed, and then click the 'Review' button, you will be presented with the following fields:

Original Article: displays the article before it was revised.

Updated Submission: displays the revisions that have been made by your users.

To reject the revision simply click the 'Reject New Version' button.

To edit the revision simply click the 'Edit New Version' button, this will open the text/WYSIWYG editor.

To approve the revision simply click the 'Accept New Version' button.

 



Comments Pending Approval

Any comments awaiting approval will be displayed here, with date submitted, details of the user and the details of the comment.

To remove the comment simply select the radio button of the comment you wish to remove, and click the 'Remove Comment' button.

To approve the comment simply select the radio button of the comment you wish to approve, and click the 'Accept' button.
