Conditional block using PHP

Conditional block using PHP

I have been struggling a bit about the header blocks since there are some template differences between pages, databases and applications. Now I think i have a solution for it however as I have tested to use raw PHP in the blocks. This allow me to display content based on the URL, which seem to be working fine. Adding a bit of PHP for the blocks was not really very difficult. There are plenty of examples online and I started with a simple url match using the $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] function.

Figuring out tabs and blocks

Figuring out tabs and blocks

I took some time this weekend to go over how to create tabs and blocks in IPS and it turned out pretty good. This means another part of the structure on the website is now ready to be used. I am making progress. With the tabs I can now create content with more freedom. I already have a few areas in mind for this where I want to create new content. I can add individual pages or even sections, which makes this amazing in so many ways. I can add for example forums or clubs to any page using th

Adding reviews...

Adding reviews...

One of the things I liked about my Wordpress theme was the possibility to add reviews to it. It was a nice feature that had some nice customization options maming it useful for many different types of reviews. I want to add that to this site and take advantage of the power of Pages to make it really flexible. Building the database is pretty easy. Creating the layout is also pretty easy using the same template work as I did for the People section. The tricky bit will be to add the design to

Building a Design System Manager for JWSE

Building a Design System Manager for JWSE

Invision DSM caught my interest today and I am now a bit excited about testing that out. I already have Sketch of course as well as CRAFT, so it's basically just to start hashing out the design specifications and get this show on the road! I will start by rebuilding the IPS design in Sketch so I have the basic symbols in place. Then I can start working on the good stuff. The symbols will be organized using a standard naming convention and I will probably get a few symbols plugins to help or

My Roles - thoughts and execution

My Roles - thoughts and execution

As my last assignment now is over I am focusing on My Roles section. This will be my CV kind of area and I am designing the structure of the content now. The idea is that it will follow the same structure as the CV’s we have at Claremont.  Building the My Roles section will not be a big project as it is pretty much just standard template work to a move the different fields to where I want them. I have decided not to put any effort into cross database design at this time. Instead I will just

Re-organizing things

Re-organizing things

I have reviewed the way I organize things on the site in terms of categories and decided to maintain a common structure. I have reordered the calendar, videos and the blog articles for starters and will align all areas with this new structure. The reason for wanting to align things is of course to make sure I keep content consistent throughout the site. This makes it easier for people to understand the structure and I can maintain expectations on what you will find on the site. I have

Special Interrest: Hosting

Special Interrest: Hosting

One of my great passions is web hosting and domain names. I have been working with this everyday since around 2000 and I know well how hard it is for people to understand what it is they need when they start a website for example. Just as Atlassian and Wordpress are special interrest, Hosting and domain names will also find it's way here. In a future themed month I will add Hosting as a specialty and with it I will add a hosting database and a set of articles. I will setup some affiliates a

Starting to get the hang of things...

Starting to get the hang of things...

Even though I am not really that focused today since I am home with a cold, I still feel I am starting to get the hang of custom fields for IPS Pages and it's databases. It is not really that hard to reference the fields from the database, which makes it easy to create pretty much any layout I want. Now I just need to focus on which database to focus on first! Slowly, but surely the databases are getting built and slowly I start to get the hang of the templates system. Adding fields to temp
