Currently fighting my way through IP.Content at the moment, and there seems to be a large crossover of blocks available for IP.Content and hooks that appear in the IP.Board sidebar. I love the sidebar and hooks system, but often get frustrated that I can't mix my custom blocks (made with the eMoney Custom Sidebar Blocks) in amongst the application hooks, and so - I have a block of custom sidebar blocks, my hooks, and some hard-coded sidebar blocks on each of my templates.
I'm probably going the long way around this, but given that IP.Content offers a very similar sort of functionality, would it ever be possible to have a system within IP.Board that allows the creation and importing of sidebar hooks/blocks similar to how IP.Content does it?
An application that did the following would be pure amazing:
--- Allowed easy creation of custom feed/plugin/hook blocks (loving the look of the block templates to come out with new IP.Content!)
--- Assign block to appear in sidebar of multiple applications (Blog, Content, Board, etc) - only one edit then required to change blocks across the system
--- Drag & Drop reordering of blocks per application
The ability to expand the sidebar in IP.Board from any page (not just index) would also be amazing. I hate global sidebars as a general rule, but one that I could hide and show as needed would be brilliant.
Cheers, and thanks for reading!
Hmm, maybe I am missing something but it seems to me that what you are asking for is exactly what Dawpie's Global Sidebar app does:
With this application you can display global sidebar on your board. You can add global sidebar or customized section for each application on your board. Application works on caches - minimum resource affect.NOTE: this mod works only with IP.Board 3.2! You can download version for 3.1 from previous version so no worry!
Do you have a link to this application?
Also are standard blocks like those created with (e32) Custom Sidebar Blocks able to be created and displayed in the global sidebar?
