how can i clone the staticpages plugin?

my geeklog site uses static pages for 3 main purposes. as my site is growing i'd like to seperate these 3 categories of static pages into their own. to do so i think the best way is to duplicate the plugin alltogether and install 2 seperate static pages plugins, one named 'mailer' and the other named 'venue'.

how do i go about doing this??

You would have to find all places in the plugin's code where it refers to the table name, the path, and the URL. Shouldn't be too hard, actually, if you search for $_TABLES['staticpage'], $_CONF['path'], $_CONF['site_url'], and $_CONF['site_admin_url']. Oh, and the permissions ('staticpage.edit', etc. plus the 'Static Page Admin' group name).

But you have to be very careful not to miss any occurences or you may end up with weird errors when one of your cloned plugins writes into the static pages plugin's tables ...

bye, Dirk

in the sql/install of staticpages the table gets created... if i creat a table 'staticpage_venues' (instead of 'staticpage') can i leave the following as is or do i need to edit this as well?


CREATE TABLE {$_TABLES['staticpage_venues']} (
sp_id varchar(40) NOT NULL default '',
sp_uid mediumint(Cool NOT NULL default '1',
sp_title varchar(12Cool NOT NULL default '',
sp_content text NOT NULL,
sp_hits mediumint(Cool unsigned NOT NULL default '0',
sp_date datetime NOT NULL default '0000-00-00 00:00:00',
sp_format varchar(20) NOT NULL default '',
sp_onmenu tinyint(1) unsigned NOT NULL default '0',
sp_label varchar(64) default NULL,
owner_id mediumint(Cool unsigned NOT NULL default '1',
group_id mediumint(Cool unsigned NOT NULL default '1',
perm_owner tinyint(1) unsigned NOT NULL default '3',
perm_group tinyint(1) unsigned NOT NULL default '2',
perm_members tinyint(1) unsigned NOT NULL default '2',
perm_anon tinyint(1) unsigned NOT NULL default '2',
sp_centerblock tinyint(1) unsigned NOT NULL default '0',
sp_tid varchar(20) NOT NULL default 'none',
sp_where tinyint(1) unsigned NOT NULL default '1',
sp_php tinyint(1) unsigned NOT NULL default '0',
sp_nf tinyint(1) unsigned default '0',
sp_inblock tinyint(1) unsigned default '1',
PRIMARY KEY (sp_id),
KEY staticpage_sp_uid (sp_uid),
KEY staticpage_sp_date (sp_date),
KEY staticpage_sp_onmenu (sp_onmenu),
KEY staticpage_sp_centerblock (sp_centerblock),
KEY staticpage_sp_tid (sp_tid),
KEY staticpage_sp_where (sp_where)
) TYPE=MyISAM

how about i pay you to make a .rar file with a few staticpages clones... 1 named 'venues' 1 named 'mailer' and 1 named 'artist'. would you do this and for how much?

-Christian Doh! - that was a mistake

And don't forget to rename the $LANG_STATIC and $_SP_CONF variables and update all the language files (or at least all the language files you are going to use). Oh, and you have to rename all of the plugin_???_staticpages functions and check their contents for stray 'staticpages' text.

Not a quick fix. The $_CONF path and url vars are the real killers since they don't lend themselves to simple search and replace. Perhaps someone should modify the existing static page plugin to create $_SP_CONF['path_plus'], $_SP_CONF['site_url_plus'] and $_SP_CONF['site_admin_url_plus'] variables to replace the $_CONF vars which would make cloning the sp plugin a big search and replace action (plus language file updates).
