The controlling of xBlog plugins should be easy:

  • Users control relevant properties by the flexforms

  • Administrators control properties by the constant editor

The bridge

The core of xBlog is the bridge.

For example: a list view is publishing usually the elements:

  • a title

  • a subtitle

  • a short (sometimes)

An administrator allocates to each element fields like

  • subtitle: margin_subtitle // teaser_subtitle // subtitle // my_extension_subtitle

This means:

xBlog is looking for a value from a field margin_subtitle and if it is empty, xBlog looks for a value from a field teaser_subtitle, and if it is empty, it takes the next for rendering. And so on.

This concept enables a ready-to-use configuration for most of use cases.
