CBCMS2016 - Building your Own Admin Modules - Part 2 - Extending ContentBox 3

Gavin Pickin

In our last post, we started building an Admin Module. This process isn't actually that difficult or long, but we have broken it into separate blog posts to make it easier to read each piece. We have built our basic ModuleConfig.cfc, now we need to build an event handler and view, so the default action when you hit your new module have something visible. Our module was called mySecrets, so lets move on.

CBCMS2016 - Building your Own Admin Modules - Part 1 - Extending ContentBox 3

Jul 27, 2016

 

In previous posts, we looked at how to extend ContentBox 3 with ColdBox Modules, installing from Forgebox with CommandBox, or creating your own. In this post, we're going to look at how you can create your own Admin Modules, add Menu Items into the Admin Interface, use ContentBox admin Users and Permissions instead of building your own security by extending ContentBox.

CBCMS2016 - ContentBox Comment Moderation and Events

Luis Majano
Jul 22, 2016

 

ContentBox sports many out of the box comment moderation tools.

From the screenshot you can appreciate all the different tuning you can do for comment moderation:

  • All comments moderated
  • User must have an approved comment to be approved consequentely
  • Auto-deletion of comments that are moderated
  • Moderated keywords (ip addresses, authors, emails, or content)
  • Blocked keywords (ip addresses, authors, emails, or content)

My favorite setting is the auto-deletion of moderated comments. I have never ever ever ever cleaned up spam anymore. I let ContentBox do it every X number of days and I truly appreciate that as it is one less thing to worry about.

We are happy to announce the immediate availability of CommandBox 3.2.0 to the public. This is a minor release of the CLI tool and aimed at adding some polish to the multi-server features that came out in 3.1. Jon Clausen also worked to get the latest Adobe 10, 11, and 2016 updates added to ForgeBox as well so you can start up Adobe servers with all the latest fixes.

CBCMS2016 - ContentBox - Inheriting the Theme Layout in your Custom Module

Gavin Pickin
Jul 20, 2016

 

Modules are one of the key components of everything ContentBox. Adding a module into ContentBox is fairly simple, we have a few blog posts already outlining some of the different ways you can create them, but we have left out one very important piece so far ( we actually had a few questions about it on the CFML Slack Channel ), how do we theme our custom module output? Theming your custom module, so it uses the same theme/layout as the rest of your ContentBox site is now a reality. This is vital if you are going to be extending your site with your own modules, and you would hate for your module to be tightly coupled to the current theme, making it harder to change themes. This could be difficult, but luckily for you, its simple.

 

Don't let your Custom Module look like this screenshot

CBCMS2016 - Discovering the Global HTML Theme Interception Points

Luis Majano
Jul 08, 2016

 

 

ContentBox has what we call, a Global HTML manager. This manager allows you to seamlessly drop in JavaScript/CSS/HTML to specific theme and UI presentation life-cycle events.

Please note that the active theme must implement the life-cycle events in order for the Global HTML output to happen.

Purpose

The purpose of the Global HTML manager is to allow the integration of third-party scripts, CSS or HTML integrations easily without altering code or programming it in the theme. This allows for cross-theme output in a manageable manager.
