After a week of using the fantastic PageLines DMS update it became clear to me that:
- This system making WordPress theming a much faster endeavor
- There is a pretty good plugin system built into the package
One of the things I wanted to do was copy and paste section content from template to template. Another thing was to have WYSIWYG support for editing section content in DMS.Unfortunately these are not features available right out of the box. So, I did what any lazy Developer would do. I made plugins.
CopyPasta is a simple, yet very handy extension for PageLines DMS that adds a much needed copy and paste between sections. Once activated, buttons are added to the DMS toolbar. The goal us to have them feel as if they are a part of the core features if DMS.
Enhanced Options Editor for PageLines DMS brings the same WYSIWYG as used in WordPress to edit content. With the stock installation of DMS all sections have basic HTML editing and image access, which is fine for most applications. But when the website is going to be turned over to a client it is good to not require them to need an HTML literate person to make basic content updates. Both of these plugins are available in my online store and also on the PageLines store as well.
