I have an alpha release of an extension that provides nested weblogs much the same way phpMyAdmin does. Once installed it creates groups based on your “weblog names”. So take the following names…
news_daily news_features static_pages blog
Note: These are names, not titles. The extension doesn’t even look at the titles, so feel free to name those whatever you want.
Using those blogs, the structure would look something like this:
news | -- daily | -- features static_pages blog
Basically, what i’m saying is that it checks to see if any of your blogs are similarly named. If they are it ill take those similar parts and create a group.
Finally, place the image in the cp_global_images folder.
Update: Version 2.0 should work with EE1.6, but let me know if you find otherwise.
Lastly, an image of what it looks like:
Just to test I added it to a pre-existing site to see how it might work. It seems to want to group my weblogs by first letter only. I should note that no weblogs share any weblog name convention as directed for grouping but even so, it shows two groups of weblogs that all share the first letter and seemed to leave out weblogs that don’t share a first letter. Thought I’d give you an FYI on that.
I wonder if the fact that I have pre-existing weblogs that have underscores in them that are not named along the convention needed for grouping is causing an issue.
When I created two new weblogs that shared the same pre weblog name (weblog-name_subsection-name) it worked fine on adding those and grouping that specifically but the already created weblogs were grouped by first letter and some weblogs didn’t show up at all in the list (I believe those don’t have an underscore in their names or share a letter with those that do).
Oh, and the type of functionality you have been churning out as of late has been amazing. I’m sure I can speak for others that I just keep waiting to see what your will develop next (I’m a big fan of your publish page file upload custom field addition - bravo!).
I’ve upgraded to your 1.1 and using EE 1.5.0 and I can’t seem to make “ungrouped” weblogs show up in the drop down list. One shows up but no other. I’ve created several new ungrouped weblogs to try to see if I can discover why one “ungrouped” shows and the others dont. When I create a second weblog to group with a previous ungrouped weblog then they both show up.
I should also ask where the image arrow_right.gif should be placed in the site files?
