Jadu CMS

Downloads : Copy To Clipboard

We've had some complaints about the number of clicks to get a download to download using the native Jadu functionality.  I've made some small changes to the downloads admin page allowing a content admin to copy the direct file url to the clipboard and then paste it into a link in the Content Widget.

Here's a video I recorded today for another purpose demoing the functionality.

I'm happy to share how I did it if anyone is interested.

There is a proposal here at Greenwich to replace SearchImprove, which is running down, with Apache Nutch+Solr.

Is anyone else running Jadu also using these technologies? If so, how is it going?

Alternatively, is anyone using Rupa, and how's that?


Defect: CKEditor Snippet Tool CMS

The current version of Jadu (12.3.0 at the time of this post) has a defect with the snippet tool when using the new CKEditor. We use the snippet too heavily to insert javascript into pages, modify styling, etc. Sometimes when you insert a combination of Javascript and HTML depending on your linebreaks, it will strip most, if not all, of the code out.

Defect: CKEditor with Images

I thought it might be a good idea to start logging defects and temporary fixes that have not been patched in any official releases yet. We are working on upgrading to the latest version and are several months behind at this point. Our development instance has version 12.3.0 which we are currently testing for production use.  

CKEditor Format Menu Hacks

I'll go on record to say that I love the new CKEditor in Jadu.  I had a strong dislike for Xhina, and embrace this change with both arms, well done guys.

CKEditor is a great editor because of its configurability.  Jadu exposes some of these option in the editor setup with the CMS in Utilities | Document Editor Privileges.
