James Allen Hallvoted on How Can I Move Forms/Templates to Other Sites or Other Portals?

There are three ways you can approach this:

1) Manually Create - You can always login in to the portal as Host/SuperUser and create the forms/templates there individually by manually copy/pasting the code from one to the other.


2) Copy the XMP Files by FTP - By FTP or direct server access, look into the /Portals/_default/XModPro/ directory. There you'll find a Forms directory and Templates directory and Feeds directory.

Within each of those directories you'll fi ...

John Wolfcreated the topic: Icons instead of text in Template Controls

For template control links such as EditLink and DeleteLink, we prefer to use icons instead of text. In particular, we'd like to use FontAwesome icons. Is there a way to do this? Thank you.

  • Kelly FordHi John,

    There's not a built-in tag or mechanism for this. However, you should be able to use the Edit/DeleteLink tag to generate a normal hyperlink. Then use the CssClass attribute to assign a class name. Then you should be able to target the element for replacement by FA. You may also be able to either wrap the element in another HTML tag. A third possibility would be to simply insert an HTML element before or after the link to hold the icon. In that case you'd have the link with the ic ...9 months ago

John Wolfcreated the topic: Styling Template Output by Non-host Users

Our developers are not particularly good at styling grid and detail output. We'd like a front-end designer to apply styling in templates but don't want to give host rights. Is there a way to do this? If not, any suggestions on how others would approach …

  • Kelly FordBecause of the access a user would have to things like your database, XMP only allows editing by Host users. However, when it comes to styling, the best approach is simply to use CSS. CSS class names and HTML IDโ€™s can be inserted into the HTML generated by XMP if necessary. Most designers may only need class names (or IDโ€™s) inserted for specific scenarios. Otherwise, typical site styling like grids can and should be done via stylesheets. 10 months ago

  • Kelly FordHi Jeff,

    Feeds are called usually via Javascript or perhaps IFRAME's. They're not a replacement for Templates, nor can the be embedded in them. I would suggest using JS or IFRAME's to make the calls to the different feeds.

  • jeffwest1Hi Kelly

    Thanks for the response. I actually managed to sort this out, I needed to have a normal item template, then I managed to add three xmod:Feed after that, so managed to achieve what I wanted.

Mike Oanswered the question Json feed returns null instead of empty array []

While looking for other info, it occurred to that it might help someone else to show how I ended up resolving the problem. In the feed, I simply joined a record with all a values NULL . This made FullCalender (and me) smile.

  • Kelly FordHi jeffwest1,

    We generally only keep the last minor version upgrade in a series (i.e. 4.5.4 instead of 4.5.3). Does that version work for you? If not, I will look in our archives for 4.5.3 specifically. Just let me know.

    Kelly1 year ago
  • Kelly FordSince posting, I have double-checked our archives and we have 4.5.3 available. I was pretty sure we did, since we keep all our released versions, but didn't want to post until I knew for sure. If you need that specific version, submit a support request at https://support.dnndev.com. and we'll get you a copy.
