Articles Linking

Articles Linking

Hi all and thanks for an excellent module!

I have used metamod 2-1 on Joomal 1.5 to perform the task of showing two "linked Articles" on the same page.

One of the articles appears on the main body (which is all images) the accompanying article (which is a description)appears on the left position (I have used another module to acomplish this called 'place here').

With metamod, I have used one of the puplished recipes to 'join the articles' based on the metadata description, i.e. in the php script:

$names = array(
  "LINK_49" => 49,
  "LINK_50" => 50

);

In terms of mainitaining the site from the front end, this is not very practical though.. Can someone ponit me to the direction of a script that would perform this process dynamically - that is of course if there is some sort of consistency in the metatags desciption..

Thanks again for a beautiful module!

Re: Articles Linking

Hi Yiannis,

I think I see what you mean -- you would like the Meta Keyword itself to contain the ID number of the module to include. That way, you can write the module id into the meta keywords, and you would never have to edit the MetaMod again.

I'll work on a modified recipe for this and let you know.

Cheers,
Stephen

Re: Articles Linking

OK, try the new recipe on the bottom of this page:

http://www.metamodpro.com/support/recip … escription

This allows you to put in keywords like this:

LINK_33, LINK_44, LINK_right

... and this triggers the recipe into including those modules.

Just be careful about who you allow to add keywords. This allows anyone who can edit articles to include arbitrary modules on the page, so take care.

Cheers,
Stephen
