Two free RedDot CMS plugins – CMS User Chat & Batch Publish


Henry Lu, also known in the RedDot Community / RedDotters Google Groups as Javahand has published two RedDot CMS plugins.
The plugins are not written in Java, .NET or maybe ASP, no they are Flash based plugin solutions which makes them compatible to most browser as long as your enterprise policies allow Adobe Flash on work stations.

The plugin interface looks very neat for both plugins, a easy to use overview of tasks, options and functions.
I recommend trying it out.

About the plugins

Batch Publisher™ for RedDot CMS

A publication manager to publish selected pages and following pages.

Reddot CMS Batchpublisher by JavahandBatch Publisher™ provides a convenient way for content class based page batch publishing in RedDot CMS. Download it here.
RedDot CMS is designed to componentize a Web site by way of content classes. When a specific portion of the site gets updated, either in terms of function or look and feel, the change is not reflected on the live site until the affected files are published out.

In SmartTree, RedDot CMS does provide a way for a site administrator to traverse the collection of page instances pertaining to a specific content class, albeit with a maximum of 200 pages returned.

RedDot CMS, however, does not provide a way for the site administrator to publish out those returned pages in batch fashion. Publishing those pages out means that the administrator has to select and publish those pages one by one.

The often used, no-brainer alternative is to publish out the entire site, regardless of the population of updated pages; however, when a site is large and the change is time-sensitive, whole-site publishing becomes very attractive and impractical.

That is where Batch Publisher™ comes in. It provides an easy way for administrators to see the collection of pages pertaining to a specific content class and publish them in batch fashion. All common conceivable operation are built-in: granular selection and sorting of pages within the page collection of a content class are simple clicks.

  1. My tip to batch publish without this plugin: Use a container for grouping all desired pages.

    First: search by content class all your needed pages.
    Second: select them from the clipboard and link to a container in a dummy page (I prefer an unlinked page so it’s not visited)
    Third: select the container and in your context menu, at the end, you’ll see “publish pages”!
    Last: empty your dummy container and publish the dummy page.

  2. My (enhanced) tip to batch publish without this plugin: Use a container for grouping all desired pages.

    First: search by content class all your needed pages. Or many searches you need for publish in one batch process.
    Second: select all them from the clipboard and link to a container in a dummy page (I prefer an unlinked page so it’s not visited)
    Third: select the container and in your context menu, at the end, you’ll see “publish pages”!
    Last: publish the dummy page and empty your dummy container. Publish again your repaired dummy page or erase it.

  3. Good job Henry! Good to see your name again, what a great job you did for our company as a consultant. I’m still looking for a fulltimer for NYC so, if you think of anyone….
