<sb-edit-area></sb-edit-area>

Makes other tags inside the contents of the <sb-edit-area> tag behave like the page was fetched from the editarea even if the file was fetched from the viewarea. Pages are fetched from the viewarea until the user enters the content editor, then files will be fetched from the user's local editarea.

The tag also enables several subtags which can be used to manipulate SiteBuilder files.

The __sb_edit_area form variable may be set in a link to a file to ensure that the file is fetched from the edit area. If this variable is omitted and the user isn't logged on to the Content Editor, uncomitted files and changes will not be seen.

To better manage errors, use this plugin together with <sb-error>.

If the server is in frontend mode the tag will not emulate editarea behaviour inside the tag because editareas are not supported on frontends.

Attributes

quiet

If this attribute is set this tag will not generate rxml run errors. This attribute is useful to hide errors like access denied: No write access to workarea from appearing in the debug log.

Defined in content

<sb-add-language/>

This tag adds a new language to an already existing file.

<sb-category></sb-category>

This tag sets none, one or more categories for a file. The subtag <category> with the required attributes file representing the category tree file and node representing the node id are used to set none, one or more categories.

File and node values cannot contain the "|" or "!" characters.

Old categories that were set for the file will be removed. To simply append new categories to the file do the following:

<sb-category file='&file.path;'> <!-- Set the old categories again --> <emit source='category' file='/path-to/category-file.xml' ref='&file.path;'> <category file='/path-to/category-file.xml' node='&_.node;'/> </emit> <!-- Add the new category --> <category file='/path-to/category-file.xml' node='1234567890-0'/> </sb-category>

Specify the file that is to have a local copy in the editarea. If this attribute is omitted the current file will get a local copy.

<sb-move/>

This tag moves and renames files and directories within the SiteBuilder repository.

Note: Files or directories that only exists in a user's edit area may also be moved or renamed. It is strongly advised to specify a message when moving/renaming files or directories as they automatically will be commited to the version system. If a message is omitted it is hard to tell the purpose of the action.

To better manage errors, use this plugin together with <sb-error>.

Attributes

To better manage errors, use this plugin together with <sb-error>.

Attributes

dir
dir=absolute or relative path to a directory
This attribute is required.

Specify the new directory and its path.

Note: Insert a '#' (hash) to give the file an automatically created unique name. This will only work if the attribute auto-name-info is given.

message
message=text

Specify a message for the version system (CVS). This message should specify what action has taken place and why it took place.

auto-name-info
auto-name-info={variablename, empty}

This attribute is useful when the directory-creating procedure is to be automated. To automatically create a unique name, a '#' (hash) has to be inserted somewhere in the filename. The '#' will be substituted with the user's unique idnumber and a counter. Each time a new directory is created, the counter will increase the number which creates unique and easily sorted files. Note: Remember to insert a '#' when specifying the filename in the dir attribute, or else the directory will not be given a unique name.

To make further work with the directory easier, it is possible to specify a variable that will contain the new directory's filename. Remember to use the correct syntax when creating the variable, e.g. 'var.dirname'.

If the variablename is omitted, the directory will be given a unique name, but the name won't be stored inside a variable.

<sb-new-dir dir="userdir_#" auto-name-info="var.dirname" />

The example will create a directory where the "#" will be expanded to the user's unique identity number and a number from a counter separated by an "_" (underscore). This ensures that the name will be unique. The new directory name, e.g. userdir_25_2 will be put into the variable var.dirname which can be reached through &var.dirname;.

<sb-new-file/>

This tag creates new files within the SiteBuilder repository.

To better manage errors, use this plugin together with <sb-error>.

Attributes

file
file=absolute or relative path to a file
This attribute is required.

Specify a name for the new file.

Note: Insert a '#' (hash) to give the file an automatically created unique name. This will only work if the attribute auto-name-info is given.

stationery
stationery=path and filename

The new file will be based on an existing template.

auto-name-info
auto-name-info={variablename, empty}

This attribute is useful when the file-creating procedure is to be automated. To automatically create a unique name, a '#' (hash) has to be inserted somewhere in the filename. The '#' will be substituted with the user's unique idnumber and a counter. Each time a new file is created, the counter will increase the number which creates unique and easily sorted files. Note: Remember to insert a '#' when specifying the filename in the file attribute, or else the file will not be given a unique name.

To make further work with the file easier, it is possible to specify a variable that will contain the new file's filename. Remember to use the correct syntax when creating the variable, e.g. 'var.filename'.

If the variablename is omitted, the file will be given a unique name, but the name won't be stored inside a variable.

<sb-new-file file="articles/article_#.xml" auto-name-info="var.filename" />

The example will create a file where the "#" will be expanded to the user's unique identity number and a number from a counter separated by an "_" (underscore). This ensures that the file will be unique. The new filename, e.g. article_25_2.xml will be put into the variable var.filename which can be reached through &var.filename;.

mkdirhier

If the directories in the path to the file do not exist, they will be created.

Note, the auto-name-info can be used in the directory name as well as for the filename:

<sb-new-file file="/non-existing-dir/another-dir_#/index.xml" auto-name-info="var.created-path" mkdirhier="1" />

See explanation for auto-name-info. The variable var.created-path will e.g. contain the path "/non-existing-dir/another-dir_25_3/index.xml"

message
message=text

Commit message for directories created through the use of mkdirhier.

content-type

Specify the new file's content-type.

content-type-from
content-type-from=filename

The content type will be fetched from the given file's content type.

<sb-new-file file='new.img' content-type-from='picture.jpg' />

The example will create a file named new.img with the content type image/jpeg.

<sb-purge/>

This tag deletes files and directories within the SiteBuilder repository permanently, as well as there version history. Note! Using this tag is dangerous because actions can not be undone.

To better manage errors, use this plugin together with <sb-error>.

Attributes

path
path=absolute or relative path to a file or a directory
This attribute is required.

Specify the file or directory to be purged. If a directory, a recursive purge is performed. It is not possible to purge the root ('/').

<sb-set-content></sb-set-content>

The contents inside the container will be written to a specified file within the SiteBuilder repository. The contents will automatically be HTML-decoded. This will transform &lt;, &gt; and &amp; to <, > and &. This makes it possible to write RXML expression inside the container, which will be evaluated before the contents are written to the file.

To better manage errors, use this plugin together with <sb-error>.

Attributes

operation
operation={replace, insert, append}

Specify the type of edit operation to perform.

  • replace Replace with the content (default).

  • insert Insert the content before the existing.

  • append Append the content after the existing.

xpath

Specify what XML nodes in the original file to edit.

Note that the presence of this attribute forces the tag into XML-mode.

Note that only a very limited subset of XPath is currently available.

file
file=absolute or relative path to a file

Specify the file in which to add content. If this attribute is omitted, the content will be added to the current file.

<sb-set-content file="&var.filename;"> <article&gt; <intro&gt;<wash-html>&form.intro;</wash-html></intro&gt; <if not="" variable="form.link is "> <link href="&form.link;" /&gt;</if> <body&gt;<wash-html>&form.body:none;</wash-html></body&gt; <username&gt;&user.fullname;</username&gt; <date&gt;<date type="iso" date="" /></date&gt; </article&gt; </sb-set-content>

This example will add the content inside the <sb-set-content> containers to the file in the variable var.filename. However, before adding the content to the file, the information in the variables form.intro and form.body will be turned into HTML. See <wash-html> for more detailed information about its use.
