My weekly Friday pub question
What are you all working on at the moment in PW? Tell us a bit about it, what it does, who it's for and how it works.
I'm currently building 2 sites for a UK company in the broadband performance/ analytics space.
The main corporate site is about 20+ pages. Nothing too fancy-pants happening but apart from looking great, it needs to be speed optimised to within an inch of its life due to the industry the company is in.
There'll be some integration with SalesForce, a blog and some login/registration areas connecting the two.
What about you?
I got a client request to make Word template so she can create an image of the weekly menu of a restaurant to post on Facebook. I usually get sick when I have to deal with M$ Word - it's frustration and it's not meant to be used things like that.
I used ProField modules Table and Matrix Repeater which allow very pleasant editing of menu items, even in multilanguage context.
Front-end editing is created using the built-in front-end editor. I was about to achieve inline editing of menu items but it soon turned out that repeaters and tables can't be edited this way. Anyway, it's still better compared to my module FEEL because sections are reloaded using Ajax and the admin lightbox shows only the fields I choose.
Here's a quick screencap - when the gray background turns to dark gray, then the menu is not HTML but canvas, that can be downloaded.
