Check the link below for information on changing one page vs all donation pages and built in themes vs customised, but it’s pretty simple.
As we start scoping sub nations we're seeing a need to share some sort of content across subnations to keep messaging inline and to drive traffic across the subs array to the appropriate outlet.
This may already exist, but it would be extremely useful to call content across subnations either by tag or explicitly by ID or something else.
The major scenarios would be:
- a shared bit of content from the parent that can be updated once but employed on child nations
- tagged content somewhere in a nation array that can is displayed on other nations like related blog posts or actions
Realize that from any nation in a group would be messy especially in large arrays. So some sort of limits would be understandable:
- on content types sharable
- direction of sharing within family (just down, vertical or horizontal only)
- caching (infrequently updated not realtime would be fine)
Basically, if we can any sort of dynamic sharing across it would be great…
In lieu of custom fields for content items — which seems unlikely any time soon — it would be helpful if there were some consistency in content items so that different types can more easily be aggregated in displays by tag, recentness, etc.
As we build more complex sites, we find that we have to build complex conditional displays for different types of items as some have excerpts, some don’t, some have pre-flips, some have intros, some are posts vs pages, etc
In most cases we’re aggregating a few of the most important items on the site at a given time and it would be super useful to have more than just a headline on these aggregated lists. But the inconsistency in fields makes it hard to code and hard to train clients to use as there are different rules per page type.
Just having an excerpt on every type (including redirects as we’ve found on large subnation arrays) would solve this if it’s not too much trouble. As excerpt is an optional field for the most part, it wouldn’t cause any major issues for less complex sites/users.Official response from Jim Gilliam
Have you looked at the _page_excerpt.html include? This does what you describe -- creates an excerpt specific to each type of page.
The feature here: http://grab.by/kllO that filters address accuracy to city, state, country, etc. would be extremely useful across the system. We're currently experiencing almost 100% address failure internationally outside of US/UK for user created events and this would at least allow for mapping to a degree without the multistep manual correction method we're using now on several thousand events.
If that filter could be added even at the template level or somewhere in the backend it would make life much easier as even Google directly has huge issues with street addresses as conventions vary so much from country to country.
