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


Open Lounge™ for RedDot CMS

A collaboration tool or simply – a chat – for your RedDot CMS editors.

Open Text Reddot CMS Open Lounge by JavahandEasy to Use: The user interface of Open Lounge™ is self-explanatory. Its main function is to allow users to see who else is signed in RedDot and provides them with an instant messaging service.

Reliable and safe: Open Lounge™ puts barely any load on your RedDot CMS server. Its main processing happens on the client side.

Open Lounge™ does not use any third party messaging server nor does it use peer to peer protocol. It only uses channels already opened to signed-in users on the RedDot CMS server. If your RedDot CMS server is confined behind a firewall, Open Lounge™ behaves as a good citizen should and no information packet is sent across the wall.

Installation is a breeze: No special run-time or application is required for Open Lounge™ to run.
And the installation is that of the easy, standard issue RedDot CMS plug-in routine.
You can consult your OpenText/RedDot CMS manual if you are not familiar with the few steps involved in installing a plug-in.
The following is the gist of it:

  1. Download the plug-in zip folder.
  2. Unzip the folder and make sure you uncheck the “read-only” property that is applied to the folder by default.
  3. move the folder into your CMSaspPlugIns folder on your CMS server.
  4. Access the Plug-in Management Interface via Server Manager and import Open Lounge™.
  5. Log in CMS users can access Open Lounge™ from Server Manager main node, SmartTree main node, Administer Project Structure node and “Action Menu” in SmartEdit when a page is opened.

Voila! You will have a fairly sophisticated yet light-weight business collabration plug-in running in your CMS in no time!

  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….
