We'll cover the creation of manual blocks in eZ Flow and eZ Publish, so stick around if you'd like to brush up on your knowledge.
You might think that working with PDF documents in your PHP application would be a breeze. And you would be right, as long as you are generating the documents from scratch. There are a couple of PHP libraries that are really solid and give you lots of features when creating PDF documents. One of them is TCPDF, a free library (a single class, to be exact) written in pure PHP. However, when it comes to filling out PDF forms, you're out of luck. Not only is there no PHP solution (or I'm not aware of one) for filling out PDF forms seamlessly, but solutions that do exist often do not work 100%.
I have a present for you all. In this article we will cover not one, but two topics which will actually be wrapped in a nice little functionality which you can use. So, we will cover the custom actions of eZ Publish, and the restrictions on content browsing.
In this article, you will learn how to create your custom fetch functions which will help you in further development of your module. Also, this is a natural continuation of the last article because we will use the examples from the custom database table we created earlier to set up the new fetch functions.
If you need to brush up on your knowledge, I recommend reading the last Confessions of an Apprentice. If not, read on!
As you have probably realized by now, we are delving deeper into the PHP side of eZ Publish as this series of articles progresses. We continue in this spirit, so if you read on, you will find out how to create a database table and manipulate the data from it, using eZ Publish tools.
In the new article of our eZ Publish intermediate guide, we talk about siteaccesses and how they can be used for creating multiple pages of a site.
In the new edition of Confessions of an apprentice we will show you how to easily change layouts on a portion or portions of your website.
As promised in the last article, this one will be all about the views. We will create a simple view, and show you how to use views to further improve your projects. So, read on!
In the last article we have created our own template operator, introducing a new functionality to our eZ Publish extension and, ultimately, to the whole site. But what happens if we want to introduce a whole set of functionalities wrapped in a neat package? Read on to find out!
I will share with you a secret known only to eZ Publish gurus: persistent variables are not that hard to learn :). Of course, learning depends on good materials so hopefully this blog post will help clarify some things.
Just for test I spent 30 seconds on google (usually enough time) to find some good learning content about persistent variables and I found no such page on ez.no ecosystem. I did found 2 short blog posts (first and second) about the topic, not counting several forum posts. Interesting though, from both blogs you can see that authors haven’t been aware of persistent variables possibilities (second one even calls it mythical) but realized quickly how useful they are.
This is the second post in the series on how to create a modern web site. In previous post we covered how to set up the baseline for a web project. This post will cover the next step in a web project: setting up a site map.
We at Netgen, as a web development company, are facing the same challenges on every web project we do. It is very important to know how to deal with these challenges to successfully manage a web project. We plan to publish a series of blog posts describing the steps we take when creating a modern web site.
