CBCMS2016 - Building your Own Admin Modules - Part 4 - Extending ContentBox 3

Gavin Pickin
Aug 11, 2016

 

Ready for part 4? Yes, part 4. We continue our small walkthrough of building your own Admin Module in ContentBox 3. The last few blog posts we learned the minimum requirements for a new module, to be controlled from inside of ContentBox. Then we learned how to add a handler and a view, and how to access the module from the front end entry point, and through the ContentBox admin entrypoint. In the last blog post in this mini series, we looked at adding a Submenu for your module, to an existing top level Menu item inside of the ContentBox admin. This blog post is going to show you how to add your very own top level Menu item, give it an icon, set permissions, and then add Submenu items to access your module.

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

In previous posts, we learned how to create a module inside of ContentBox, and then we added a handler and view so we could view the module behind the security of the login, but having an admin module, without menu items, is fairly silly ( usually ). In this blog post, we'll learn how you can add Submenu items to existing menus, like the Modules Main Menu.

An incredibly powerful feature of ContentBox 3 is the increasing availability of open source themes to jump start your custom development.   For those wishing to contribute back to the community, creating your own theme is as simple as cloning one of our boilerplate themes, creating a new GitHub repo for your customizations, and publishing your theme on Forgebox.

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

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.

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.
