Introduction

Content Submission

This plugin does a number of things, but mainly it allows the user editing the content in Joomla 1.6+ (Articles + Content Categories) to receive a notification email upon editing/creating a new content item.

  • Get this

In the notification email, the previous version of the content is attached in a txt file and html file, as well as the new version.

The other information about the content is also displayed in the email.

You can also add additional people to be notified upon editing content (such as administrators, or other key people in charge of keeping the quality of the content intact).

The plugin will also notify you with a copy of the article before it is deleted completely from the system (which should make it easier to restore something if it is deleted accidentally).

You may call it a poor man's version control system (using email as the storage mechanism) but I think it will work quite nicely for a lot of sites and I hope you enjoy it!

On top of the above, I've also added in some common corrections for content pasted from Microsoft Word, but I'm looking for additional examples of things that could be corrected so if you have those I'd really like to add them in so that your HTML can be cleaned automatically upon submission!


Support is Superb


Posted on 18 October 2012

I bought it yesterday and installed. An error message appeared on the front of our site. I submitted a support ticket, an updated version with a 'fix' arrived next day - how good is that, considering the time difference on opposite sides of the globe! ....and it works.


This plugin does just what it says and was easy to install.

We needed a plugin that would send out notifications to the Admin when an Editor made updates to existing articles. Joomla will send an email to the Admin when new articles were created if "Receive System emails" is checked but not when an article is edited.

We've been using The Content Update Notifications plugin for about a month now and it does just what we need and is working great. I had a couple support questions as well and Omar was quick to reply.

I researched other "update notification" options and this is the best. I give 5 stars for the product, and 5 stars for support.

I had trouble listing the 2.5 version through the JED so I'm just combining the listing for the 1.5 version with the 2.5 version. Both extensions are free to download on the website...enjoy! ArtCats is a module that can automatically list Articles from within a designated Category or can list Categories from within a designated Section. Compatible only with Joomla 1.5 and later. Not for use with Joomla 1.0.xx. Based on Categories 1.5 module created by Rich Dorfman which was created with inspiration from Module - Content Categories version 1.0.1 by Boris Komraz. 2.5.0 version announcement: http://www.orware.com/product-news/free-extensions/artcats-2.5/artcats-2-5-0-beta-released New version 2.0.4 with "Exclude Current Article" ability now available! Read the release announcement here: http://www.orware.net/home/item/artcats-for-joomla-204-released.html Please post questions there in the comments section or email me! Additional Information (Please feel free to visit the Demo/Documentation Pages as well): When set to auto mode this module functions contextually, meaning that it will only return the expected links when on the appropriate type of page. For example, let's say you had a Section named Section 1, with Categories named Category 1, Category 2, Category 3. Let's say you also have another Section named Section 2, with Categories named Category 4, Category 5, and Category 6. In auto mode the module would automatically show links to Category 1, Category 2, and Category 3 when you visit the Section 1 page and show links to Categories 4, 5, and 6 when visiting the Section 2 page. For Categories the functionality is similar. Let's say you had a Category named Category 1 with Articles named Article 1, Article 2, and Article 3. Let's also say you had another Category named Category 2, with Articles named Article 4, Article 5, and Article 6. If you visited the Category 1 page the module would automatically show links to Article 1, Article 2, and Article 3. If you went to visit the Category 2 page the module would automatically show links to Articles 4, 5, and 6. Pretty nifty huh? I figured this would be a nice way to have a semi-automatic menu system. Your ideas are welcome!

Check out our new demonstration/tutorials videos on our Homepage! 2.6.7 2014-09-22 / Omar Ramos Needed to make an additional correction in the itemid.php class file (The Joomlatools Select Query format had changed and resulted in a PHP error) 2.6.6 2014-08-31 / Omar Ramos ! The new DOCman 2.0 stable pre-release required some changes within the plugin (please use the older 2.6.5 version if you are using one of the beta/RC versions of DOCman 2.0) 2.6.5 2014-03-01 / Omar Ramos Fixed issue with the Category Filtering Feature when "Hide Parent Category" was Turned On. Fixed the JavaScript for the regular (non-nested) layouts. Previously the Expand/Collapse functionality was being triggered even on Categories that did not have any files (so a Category would end up hiding the Category immediately beneath it, which wasn't correct) Fixed an issue where my DocmanRouterHelper::preloadCategoryPaths() method was being called statically even though it wasn't declared as a static method. Added the ability to show/hide the Details Link (Option Keys: showDetailsLink/hideDetailsLink) Added the ability to show/hide the Category Name (Option Keys: showCategoryName/hideCategoryName) ! Tweaked the way the new "Hide Expand Icons" feature works (now it hides the spacer as well so the Category Name lines up better with the file listing 2.6.4 2014-02-15 / Omar Ramos + Added the ability to show/hide the Category Folder icons (Option Keys: showCategoryIcons/hideCategoryIcons) + Added the ability to show/hide the Filetype Icons (Option Keys: showFiletypeIcons/hideFiletypeIcons) + Added the ability to show/hide the +/- Icons to Expand/Collapse the Categories (Option Keys: showExpandIcons/hideExpandIcons) + Added the ability to show direct category links to the right of the Category Title...this would be useful if you have Category Links turned off for regular users, but may want to show them for logged in users that have permission to upload (Option keys: showCategoryLinksToUsersWithPermissions, hideCategoryLinksToUsersWithPermissions) + Added the ability to use Forced Download Links at any time (Option Keys: useForcedDownloadLinks/useDefaultLinks) + Added a CSS fix to remove the Category block being highlighted if you click on it multiple times quickly to Expand/Collapse the hierarchy ! Modified the render method for the non-nested layouts so that categories with sub-categories would not be treated as "empty" ones (this fixed an issue where if you did not have any files yet, all categories would be hidden when showCollapsed was turned on). Fixed a bug in docmanlist.js that was triggered by trying to expand/collapse empty categories Fixed a bug in sorttable.js for Joomla 3 (the updated version of Mootools no longer has the $defined function but there's a simple correction that can be made to fix that) ! Added in code that allowed Joomla 2.5/3 code to be triggered (allowing us to go back to a single package for both versions). 2

Homepage Cache

Update (2013-03-20): Just added in the ability to set your own custom cache lifetime value. This caching plugin is a more specific version of the page caching system plugin that comes default with Joomla. I've never liked how the default System Cache Plugin cached all pages on your site once enabled because that seemed to cause issues with pages that were intended to be more dynamic (hence, users would use the Conservative or Progressive Caching options instead from the Global Configuration). In my case, I thought it would be nice to enable page caching, but only for a few select pages (e.g. the Homepage) especially if only about 10 or so pages (out of let's say a couple hundred) receive the bulk of the requests (e.g. the Homepage receives 70+% of pageviews). So I set out to modify the default Joomla plugin and add in the capability to cache the Homepage out of the page, with the additional options of adding in additional relative URLs to be cached on your site. The result is this Homepage Cache System Plugin and I hope you enjoy it! After putting this into production on my site for the homepage it produced the following improvements. Here's the before example: Processing Time: 1.354 seconds / Memory Usage: 10.31 MB (10,814,760 Bytes) / Database Queries: 77 Queries Logged Then I went ahead and installed the homepage caching system plugin and turned it on (after making sure the Homepage Cache was set to be the last System Plugin executed...at the very least it needs to be ordered after the System SEF Plugin, otherwise you'll run into a weird rendering issue on subpages with beez_20, which is what happened to me while I was initially testing). That's it if you want to enable caching of your homepage...you can also open the plugin's configuration page and specify additional pages you want cached. Here's the after example: Processing Time: 0.353 seconds / Memory Usage: 4.01 MB (4,202,216 Bytes) / Database Queries: 8 Queries Logged Enjoy!

The Hidden Debug System Plugin is a cutdown version of the default System Debug Plugin that comes with Joomla. After installation, simply go in and disable the default System - Debug plugin within your Plugin Manager and leave just the Hidden Debug plugin enabled. If you then enable Debugging in the Joomla Configuration page the hidden debug plugin will then start to add debug output within a hidden HTML comment at the bottom of each of your pages in the frontend. This is useful for production sites where you can't really make full use of the debug plugin and you want to test something out (like, a caching plugin) without it displaying anything to your users that could potentially be bad to display with the normal debug plugin (for example database table name details). This plugin just gives you Profiling Information (time elapsed for page to be generated), Memory Usage, and # of Database Queries executed. As an optional feature you can enable email notifications to be sent out to you for pages that exceed a certain number of queries (this was useful for me to learn a bit more about the number of queries different pages on my site was generating and then I was able to turn it off). Enjoy!
